Vision care is something that many people often overlook when it comes to health care, especially if it’s difficult finding experienced and highly trained ophthalmologists near you. In NYC, our team proudly provides quality eye care to residents who once had to travel into the city for vision treatment.
Dr. Neil Patel established New York Ophthalmology to provide services ranging from eye exams to glaucoma treatments to New York City and Long Island residents with 5 locations in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Bronx and Queens. Dr. Patel is a board-certified ophthalmologist who graduated from Columbia University and earned his medical degree from SUNY Health Science Center at Brooklyn. He’s also a fellowship-trained retinal specialist who’s assembled a team of ophthalmologists, optometrists, and other staff members who share his vision of providing compassionate care to all patients.
Besides providing primary vision care, the services offered at our locations in the South Bronx, Jackson Heights, Jamaica, Washington Heights and Bedford-Stuyvesant include:
- Allergy eye care
- Laser cataract surgery
- Diabetic eye care
- Retina care
- Glaucoma care
Additionally, we perform LASIK vision correction surgery, an elective procedure that significantly reduces the need for eyeglasses or contact lens.
Since Dr. Patel founded the practice in 2014, we’ve continued to grow and recently have added several specialists to our staff. Many of the doctors and our support staff can speak multiple languages to better serve the communities where our offices are located.
We’ve emphasized the importance of regular eye exams because early detection and treatment of certain eye conditions, such as glaucoma, can prevent more extensive or permanent damage to your vision. In fact, glaucoma when diagnosed early can often be treated with eye drops.
If you’re looking for an ophthalmologist or optometrist in New York City, we encourage you to contact us to schedule an appointment with New York Ophthalmology at one of our 5 offices. You can also call (888) 212-EYES and a member of our friendly staff can help you schedule an appointment at one of our locations.
