Ophthalmology and Neuro-Ophthalmology
Whether conducting outpatient services or performing delicate eye surgery,
protecting the eyes and vision of the general population is the department's
objective. The Department of Ophthalmology is particularly sensitive to
the role vision plays in maintaining quality of life and independence
in the elderly.
Kingsbrook's renowned ophthalmologists also excel in the highly-specialized
field of neuro-ophthalmology. Many neurological diseases can be diagnosed
on the basis of symptoms that ophthalmologists can see in the eye. Neuro-ophthalmologic
examinations are used for the diagnosis and treatment of medical and neurologic
problems such as diabetes, hypertension, cardiac disease, blood disorders,
multiple sclerosis, strokes, and brain tumors. The Department of Ophthalmology
is also a training site for Post-Graduate Fellows.
