ColumbiaDoctors Third Avenue
880 Third Avenue
New York, NY 10022

Three Columbia specialties — Ophthalmology, Dermatology, and Otolaryngology — are taking up residence in our expanded East Side location at 880 3rd Avenue. 

ColumbiaDoctors Ophthalmology

At the Third Avenue Office, ColumbiaDoctors Ophthalmology offers patients a broad range of clinical services, from routine eye examinations for vision correction to the most sophisticated diagnostics and medical treatments for eye disorders.

As members of the Edward Harkness Eye Institute and the Department of Ophthalmology at Columbia University Medical Center, our physicians are an elite group of clinicians, scientists, and researchers. We pioneered the development of lasers, modern retinal surgery techniques, and glaucoma drugs. Our state-of-the-art surgical suites are staffed by expert nurses and anesthetists to ensure the best possible outcome after surgery.

We are dedicated to understanding the causes of vision disorders, preventing and treating them should they occur. Our goal is to provide the best medical and surgical eye care, with compassion and sensitivity to the patient’s needs.

To refer a patient or to schedule an appointment, please call (212) 305-9535. Read more about Ophthalmology.
