Vision Care

Many of us may take good vision for granted, but it’s important to make sure your eyes are as healthy and well-cared for as any other part of your body. NYC Health + Hospitals has teams of eye specialists with a comprehensive range of services and convenient locations throughout New York City.

How We Care For You

Our health system offers expert eye care for children, adolescents, and adults. You’ll find a dedicated team of board-certified ophthalmologists, licensed optometrists, and technicians who perform basic eye exams and vision tests.

Using expert diagnostic skills and substantial treatment experience, we’re able to restore or improve certain eye or eyelid conditions that may otherwise lead to vision loss or blindness. We successfully treat thousands of New Yorkers every year for common vision-related conditions, including:

  • Cataracts (clouding of the eye lens)
  • Dry eye syndrome
  • Glaucoma (increased eye pressure)
  • Diabetic retinopathy (damage to the retina)
  • Retinal disorders, such as retinal detachment
  • Macular degeneration (deterioration of the retina)

Our services also include eye surgery performed by top eye surgeons in New York City. And NYC Health + Hospitals makes it easy for you to get the affordable vision care services you need with:

  • Eye-care clinics conveniently located throughout New York City
  • Eyeglass prescriptions often filled on-site
  • Contact lens prescriptions fitted by our expert technicians.

NYC Health + Hospitals provides high quality health care to all New Yorkers, regardless of their ability to pay. But we’ll also help you find health insurance if you need it. Click here to learn more about MetroPlus, our affordable and comprehensive health insurance plan.
