Using expert diagnostic skills and substantial treatment experience, we’re able to restore or improve certain eye or eyelid conditions that may otherwise lead to vision loss or blindness. We successfully treat thousands of New Yorkers every year for common vision-related conditions, including:

  • Cataracts (clouding of the eye lens)
  • Dry eye syndrome
  • Glaucoma (increased eye pressure)
  • Diabetic retinopathy (damage to the retina)
  • Retinal disorders, such as retinal detachment
  • Macular degeneration (deterioration of the retina)

Our services also include eye surgery performed by top eye surgeons in New York City. NYC Health + Hospitals makes it easy for you to get the affordable vision care services you need with:
