Our board-certified physicians create a team of gifted specialists, allowing the center to provide complete eye care services with a focus on quality and patient-centered care.

The Brooklyn office at 240 Willoughby Avenue, Suite 4A, is connected to The Brooklyn Hospital Center, thereby providing complete hospital-level care including labs and radiology services, if needed.

A variety of services are offered at our locations, including the latest in laser vision correction and Lasik, modern cataract surgery including multifocal (technis) and accommodating (crystalens) lenses, glaucoma and retina laser procedures, and cosmetic and facial plastic surgery.
