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 visual acuity (clarity or sharpness of vision). 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) is a recognized leader in the field of cataracts. Our surgeons are among the busiest and most experienced in the country, handling more than 11,500 cases a year. These range from routine to complex procedures, which other physicians refer to us in our role as a tertiary eye care and academic center.

Through the use of leading-edge technologies like miLOOP, femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery and optiwave refractive analysis (ORA™) to verify the proper intraocular lens implant power during cataract surgery, NYEE offers patients advantages they can’t find elsewhere—along with excellent outcomes.
