New York Eye and Ear Infirmary of Mount Sinai’s staff of surgeons, ophthalmologists, technicians and support personnel bring an unsurpassed level of experience and training to the treatment of a vast range of corneal diseases and conditions.
These treatments include corneal transplantation, for which we are one of the nation’s most advanced and busiest facilities, routinely performing state-of-the-art procedures like partial thickness corneal transplants (link to new page) from donor tissue, as well as artificial corneal transplants (link to new page) for patients at risk of rejecting donor grafts. We are also an active center regionally for corneal collagen cross-linking, a recently FDA-approved technique which has shown remarkable outcomes in people with keratoconus (link to new page) and corneal ectasia following refractive surgery.
One of New York Eye and Ear Infirmary’s traditional strengths is laser vision correction. Here, our team of board-certified ophthalmologists combine their skills in reshaping the cornea through refractive surgery with the latest technology to significantly improve vision in people who are nearsighted, farsighted or have astigmatism.
