The University Eye Center serves as a vital resource for thousands of New Yorkers both at its main clinic on 42nd Street and at satellite sites around the city. This year, we saw 72,117 patient visits, and we welcomed 9,550 new patients to the UEC. We underwent a significant reorganization to better serve our patients. Previously, Adult Primary Care, Infant Vision Care and Children with Special Needs were distinct areas. Now, they fall under the new Adult and Pediatric Service, overseen by Dr. Thomas Wong. With a new state-of-the-art electronic medical records system, updated equipment in all patient care units as well as the launch of our Dry Eye Clinic, the UEC continues to provide outstanding care for our patients and a rich clinical experience for our students.
