Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Battu "BattuVision, founded in 1998, provides compassionate and comprehensive eye care in the greater New York City area, currently at three convenient office locations. 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. Our patients spend time with doctors and staff to explore the medical and surgical options available. Customer service and satisfaction are our top priorities. The beautifully-renovated Manhattan facility at 150 East 56th Street boasts a relaxed and inviting reception area, comprehensive ophthalmic equipment, and a contemporary optical shop. 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. As part of a facility which houses many other physicians, patients have the convenience of coordinating their care with other specialists as needed. The office has two lasers, modern imaging equipment, and pediatric services. The newest addition to BattuVision, the Brooklyn office at 55 Greene Avenue, Suite 2B, offers a cozy satellite practice for patients interested in receiving care in a convenient and private setting in their neighborhood. 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. Given our commitment to comprehensive eye care, we also provide spectacle and contact lens services. The group practice has affordable pricing and participates in Medicare and most managed care plans. At all of our offices, we provide warm customer service and 24 hour on-call availability. For your convenience, we also provide cell phone numbers for our physicians on our voice mail. We are committed to giving you the best care for your eyes."
