Innovative Surgical Services 

Our highly trained staff has the experience and technology to perform a wide range of eye surgeries. Our advanced surgical options offer minimal recovery time, improved visual acuity, and a reduced dependency on corrective lenses after surgery.  In addition to providing standard “no stitch” cataract surgery, we can also perform advanced cataract surgery options. If you have a rare or complex need, our doctors can consult their colleagues at the New York Eye and Ear Infirmary of Mount Sinai. Some of the procedures we perform are:

  • Toric lenses: To correct for astigmatism
  • Multi-focal lenses: To reduce dependency on glasses after cataract surgery
  • Symfony lenses: To address both presbyopia and astigmatism 
  • Laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) and photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) procedures: To treat nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism
  • Corneal cross-linking: To help with keratoconus, a disease of the cornea
  • Descemet's stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty (DSAEK) and penetrating keratoplasty (PKP) corneal transplants

We see all patients and perform most of these procedures right here in Queens. More complex surgeries requiring highly specialized equipment may be performed by your Mount Sinai Queens ophthalmologist at the New York Eye and Ear Infirmary of Mount Sinai.
