Cornea and External Diseases

The Cornea and External Diseases Service at New York Eye and Ear Infirmary of Mount Sinai (NYEE) treats patients with disorders of the cornea, conjunctiva, and sclera. The Service also provides clinical, research, and surgical training to residents and fellows.

Cornea, External Disease, and Refractive Surgery Clinics are conducted three half-days per week. Approximately, 2,500 patients are seen per year in the Cornea Clinic. The Cornea Service at NYEE is one of the busiest corneal transplantation programs in the Northeast. Non-emergent corneal surgery is scheduled regularly one day per week. Resident clinics and surgery are staffed at all times by an attending physician with subspecialty fellowship training in Cornea and External Disease.

Service surgeons routinely perform all types of corneal transplantation including penetrating (PK) and endothelial (DSEK) transplantation along with Deep Anterior Lamellar Keratoplasty (DALK) and Keratoprosthesis (K-Pro). In addition, our surgeons are experts in reconstruction of the anterior segment after trauma or due to surgical complications.

NYEE is an anterior segment imaging center with access to state-of-the-art technology, including corneal topography, pachymetry, high frequency ultrasound biomicroscopy, confocal microscopy, anterior segment optical coherence tomography, and specular microscopy.
