Message from the Chair

Welcome to the Department of Ophthalmology at The Mount Sinai Hospital, a complete multidisciplinary center combining world-class resources with a commitment to providing the highest level of diagnostic and therapeutic care to our patients.

Through an integrated approach to clinical care and research, our dedicated team of physicians, surgeons, nurses, and technicians provides the latest therapies in treating eye disorders such as glaucoma, cataracts, uveitis, and retinal, pediatric, and corneal disease, while our cutting-edge team of investigators carries out both clinical trials and laboratory research.

Our acclaimed residency training and programs in subspecialty fellowships at Mount Sinai and affiliated institutions in the New York metropolitan area capitalize on the expertise of internationally recognized faculty who are dedicated to training the next generation of physicians.

As chairman of the department, I am deeply committed to building upon the department’s long-standing tradition of excellence in patient care, education, and research in a state-of-the-art facility that emphasizes improved treatments and cures, as well as forward-thinking medical education. I am fortunate to be part of Mount Sinai’s innovative ophthalmology program and am optimistic about what lies ahead.

I invite you to learn more about the Mount Sinai Department of Ophthalmology and to contact us if you have any questions.
