Dr. Amjad Hammad performs first vitreo-retinal surgery at the New York Eye Surgical Center

The New York Eye Surgical Center 

May 22, ophthalmologist Dr. Amjad Hammad performed his first vitreo-retinal surgery in the new state-of-the-art surgery center on North Road in Wilton. 
Hammad has been advancing eye care in upstate New York for nearly 20 years. He understands how to effectively leverage new technology to achieve the best possible visual outcomes. 

“We are grateful to have the opportunity to offer our region high-quality, cost-effective eye surgery,” Hammad said. “When your operating-room team is highly trained in specialized surgery, and that’s what they do all day, every day, then the patient benefits.”

The New York Eye Surgical Center opened in November 2013, and the other practicing surgeons, CEO Dr. David Westfall, Dr. Mark Hite and Dr. Steve Solomon, have been performing cataract and glaucoma surgeries there.

“The outcomes and precision of a surgeon’s work correlate directly with the frequency the surgeon performs the particular procedure,” Westfall said. “When physicians have dedicated operating rooms available to them, they are able to help even more people in the community and provide a faster response in emergency situations.”

Hammad is an internationally recognized retina specialist treating patients with diseases such as age-related macular degeneration, retinal detachment, diabetic retinopathy and macular edema. He strives to educate his patients about their ocular diseases and treatment process.
