Your First Visit

Visiting any doctor for the first time can be a bit unsettling because you don’t know what to expect. That’s why our entire staff greets patients visiting an eye doctor in NYC at New York Ophthalmology with genuine friendliness and warmth. And that’s true whether it’s your first, 15th, or 50th appointment.

Even before arriving for your first eye appointment, we make the process as easy as possible by including patient forms on our website, along with a list of vision insurance carriers we accept at our practice. This helps streamline the appointment, so you can get in to see the eye doctor soon after you arrive.

To be honest, many patients who are visiting any of our 5 locations in Jamaica, Jackson Heights, the Bronx, Manhattan and Brooklyn are a bit surprised by the modern, classy interior and the comfortable nature of our offices. You can expect to be warmly greeted because our staff members truly enjoy helping patients and will make sure your needs are met.

Depending on the nature of the visit, patients see either an optometrist or ophthalmologist. Both are eye doctors, but ophthalmologists can perform eye surgery in addition to other treatments. We offer a wide range of services at New York Ophthalmology, using the latest, most advanced techniques and equipment to treat various eye conditions. Services available at our practice include:

  • Diabetic eye care
  • Laser cataract surgery
  • Glaucoma care
  • Allergy treatments
  • Dry eye care
  • LASIK vision correction
  • Retina care
  • Corneal procedures

Of course, we also offer primary vision care, which includes comprehensive eye exams, which are an important part of your overall health care. An eye exam is often a patient’s first appointment at the clinic and can result in diagnosing vision loss or eye diseases.

Helping you is our priority at New York Ophthalmology. That may sound simple but making our patients happy is something we take seriously. We often work closely with your other doctors to create a customized treatment plan that best suits your specific eye condition. We also communicate with your doctors after each of your appointments to make sure your treatments are having the desired results.

If you’re looking for an ophthalmologist or optometrist in New York City or Long Island, we have locations in Jamaica, Jackson Heights, the Bronx, Washington Heights and Brooklyn to serve you. We encourage you to contact us to schedule an appointment with New York Ophthalmology at one of our 5 offices. You can also call our offices directly at 866-599-8774 and a member of our friendly staff can help you schedule an appointment.
