As each day brings new information regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, we are working hard to minimize its impact on your ongoing care.
Our front desk staff is still fully operating and can be reached on our regular line at 212-570-0707, during normal business hours, Monday through Friday, 9am to 5pm. As such, in the event of needing medical attention, we are available to consult with you via telehealth. While this does not replace the physical examination, we will be able to provide you with a certain level of medical guidance or treatment so as to avoid unnecessary emergency visits. Telehealth consultations can be conducted via voice or in some instances via video calls. The visits will be treated similar to an in-person visit allowing you to potentially obtain reimbursement through your insurance carrier. As you may know, CMS has announced the extraordinary measure to provide telehealth coverage to Medicare recipients throughout the course of this pandemic.
Should you wish to obtain a remote consultation, or should you have any additional questions, require a refill on your prescriptions or contact lenses, please contact our office at your convenience.
We look forward to a not-too-distant future where we can welcome you back without protective gear. In the meantime, we wish for your health and safety in the weeks to come.

Using lasers to create incisions for surgical procedures offers many advantages over the traditional scalpel method. Lasers not only create an incision but they also coagulate blood at the incision site to offer a practically blood-less procedure and greater anatomical visibility for the surgeon. The use of lasers allows greater control and visibility of structures during surgery. For his oculofacial procedures, Dr. Ebby Elahi uses a CO2 laser, to create his incisions.
Cataracts occur when the natural lens in the eye thickens and becomes cloudy causing, in many cases, distortion and a loss of vision. To treat cataracts, the cloudy lens must be surgically removed and replaced with an Intraocular lens (IOL) implant which helps to restore vision. Today, there are advances in IOL implants that offer many cataract patients the ability to see clearly without the use of glasses. Learn More
