Cataracts Services

Cataracts are a common and unavoidable part of life. Almost everyone will develop them at some point and may require surgical removal to restore clarity or sharpness of vision (visual acuity). Selecting the right specialist for your cataract surgery is one of the most important decisions you can make. This means choosing an eye center whose physicians have unsurpassed experience and training as well as access to the latest technology and equipment. New York Eye and Ear Infirmary of Mount Sinai (NYEE) offers patients advantages hard to find elsewhere—along with excellent outcomes.

Why Choose NYEE for Your Cataract Surgery?

NYEE is a recognized leader in the field of cataracts. Our surgeons are among the busiest and most experienced in the country, handling thousands of cases a year and teaching the next leaders in cataract surgery. From routine cataract surgery to complex procedures resulting from chronic eye diseases or trauma, NYEE is a major referral center across the tristate area, and one of the most respected specialty eye hospitals and academic centers nationwide.

Through the use of leading-edge technologies for cataract surgery like miLOOP®, femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery, optiwave refractive analysis (ORA™), and a wide variety of intraocular lens implant options, patients benefit from the highest level of surgical precision and excellent outcomes—even in the most difficult cases. Not only do our patients regain their eyesight and, as a result, quality of life from cataract surgery, but in many instances, our cataract specialists can help patients eliminate their dependence on eyeglasses and contact lenses completely.

In addition, patients with complex eye conditions from chronic diseases like diabetes, previous eye surgeries, or trauma will receive care from a team of ophthalmic specialists to treat their unique and often difficult cases. This multi-specialty care model is possible because NYEE is a specialty eye hospital with a full roster of faculty with expertise in glaucoma, retina, cornea, neuro-ophthalmology, and oculoplastics—in one location. We also offer general anesthesia during surgery, something not readily available at all eye centers.
