About Us

Welcome from the Chair

Dr. D'Amico

On behalf of The Department of Ophthalmology of Weill Cornell Medical College, I am pleased to welcome you to our Department and its locations and services. The main Weill Cornell Eye Associates offices are located within the award-winning Weill Greenberg Center at 1305 York Avenue at 70th Street, and have been designed to provide exceptional patient care in a most welcoming and attractive environment. The 22,000 sq ft patient care area is state-of-the-art throughout, and includes more than 30 superbly equipped rooms for patient examination and consultation as well as a specially designed area for pediatric patients. The facility contains the most advanced diagnostic, therapeutic, and laser technologies available, permitting diagnosis and treatment of ophthalmic conditions using the finest and most effective instruments and techniques in this rapidly changing field. We are also very pleased to announce the opening of our first satellite location downtown at 156 William Street. This beautiful suite of offices is part of the new Lower Manhattan Hospital campus of Weill Cornell and New York Presbyterian, and features many of the same physicians and services as offered at our main location. The 156 William Street office is extremely convenient for patients and is fully integrated with our main department by our shared electronic medical record and computerized diagnostics.

The physicians and staff of Weill Cornell Eye Associates are committed to excellence in the provision of a complete range of ophthalmic services, including cataract, cornea and external disease, retinal and vitreous disorders, glaucoma, pediatric ophthalmology, oculoplastics, and neuro-ophthalmology. Furthermore, these services cover the entire range of complexity, from accurate eyeglass and contact lens prescriptions to the most complex intraocular surgeries, such as keratoprosthesis (artificial corneal replacement) and vitreoretinal surgery for diabetic retinopathy or complicated retinal detachment, for example. In addition, the Refractive Laser Suite incorporates the new 60 Hertz femtosecond laser in conjunction with excimer laser technology, permitting unparalleled selection and delivery of the full range of refractive surgical options, including photorefractive keratectomy (PRK), LASIK, INTACS, and many others. A private viewing area is artistically incorporated in the Laser Suite in order to permit viewing of the ongoing procedure by the patient's loved ones, if desired. My associates and I are deeply grateful to those who have made this magnificent facility possible, with all its assembled personnel and resources, and for the services it offers to you, our patients, who are seeking to improve or regain vision. We welcome the opportunity to be of service to you.

Donald J. D'Amico, MD
