Message from the Chair

Welcome to the Department of Ophthalmology at Mount Sinai, a comprehensive medical center combining world-class resources with a commitment to providing the highest level of diagnostic and therapeutic care to our patients.

Through an integrated approach to clinical care and research, our physicians, surgeons, and technicians provide the latest therapies in treating eye disorders, while our team of investigators carries out both clinical trials and laboratory research.

Our acclaimed residencies and our programs in advanced subspecialty training capitalize on the expertise of our internationally recognized faculty, who are dedicated to training the next generation of physicians.

As chair of the department, I am deeply committed to building upon our long-standing tradition of excellence in patient care, education, and research in a state-of-the-art facility that emphasizes improved treatments and cures as well as forward-thinking medical education. I am fortunate to be part of Mount Sinai’s innovative ophthalmology program and am excited about what lies ahead.

I invite you to learn more about the Department of Ophthalmology on our website and to contact us if you have any questions.
