Personal Statement

Welcome and thank you for choosing Weill Cornell Medicine Ophthalmology where we strive to provide the best clinical and surgical care for our patient's eye needs. Being the son of an ophthalmologist myself, I've always been intrigued by the complex human eye and how it functions from a young age. I've dedicated my life to studying the human eye and completed prestigious training in Ophthalmology and vitreoretinal subspecialty fellowship here at my home institution of Weill Cornell Medicine and New York Presbyterian Hospital. I treat a variety of eye conditions including diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, retinal detachments, retinal tears and holes, epiretinal membranes, macular holes, retinal vein occlusions, dislocated lenses, infectious and inflammatory diseases of the eye.
