About Us

Weill Cornell Medicine’s nationally-ranked Ophthalmology program offers patients advanced, comprehensive, and personalized eye care for children and adults.

Using the latest methods in diagnostic procedures and patient care, our New York City-based eye doctors treat a wide range of disorders that span the entire range of complexity, from accurate eyeglass and contact lens prescriptions to the most complex intraocular surgeries, such as vitreoretinal surgery, advanced cataract surgery with customized options and keratoprosthesis (artificial corneal replacement). 

Our ophthalmology physicians also specialize in the treatment of ocular and orbital trauma, laser vision correction, and neurologic disorders that affect vision and eye movements.

Patients receive personalized care from our physicians, who draw on decades of clinical and research experience to develop treatment plans tailored to patients’ needs and concerns.

Our experts are also actively developing and researching new ophthalmic therapies. Through our clinical trials, we can offer access to many treatments that may not be available elsewhere.

What Our Patients Are Saying


"Such an amazing physician. I will definitely be switching to him for all of my Opthalmology care. He took the time to answer all of my questions thoroughly without rushing in any way. Also took time explaining every detail of my condition and symptoms to me which was largely appreciated. I would recommend him to anyone."
