Why Choose Us?

The Eye Care Center is one of the most complete eye care facilities in Upstate New York. We are very proud to have a VISX Starr 4 laser on-site. We were the first eye care professionals in the central New York area to have an on-site laser. Having our own laser enables us to keep with a premium standard of maintenance as well as the knowledge of how our laser runs day-to-day.

Routine Care

Our experienced doctors take care of your yearly exams and check for medical problems. You can have your glasses made right here at The Eye Care Center, and contact lenses are available for less than you would pay through a mail order service. Our large optical department and full service on site laboratory offers affordable convenience for everyone. Our dedicated staff will come to know you and welcome you each time you walk in the door.


Urgent problems are always seen promptly. Our ophthalmologist-on-call provides our established patients with emergency service, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, including weekends and holidays. Call 585-394-2020 anytime for information.

Advanced Surgical Techniques

If you need surgery, we offer advanced cataract surgery, retinal surgery and glaucoma treatments at F.F. Thompson Hospital and Finger Lakes Surgery Center. Laser vision correction surgery is performed by Dr. Hwang right in our office. We are known in the medical community for introducing newer, safer techniques to the region, and investing in the best equipment. Not only are we pioneers, we are proud of our quality outcomes and very low complication rates.

Network of Specialists

Sometimes, unusual or complex eye problems require consultation with a specialist. We've built a network of specialists who come to the Eye Care Center to see our patients. We offer treatment for all types of eye problems including cataract and lens implant surgery, laser vision correction, corneal disease and eye infections, corneal transplants, pediatric eye care and surgery, eye plastic surgery, macular degeneration and diabetic laser surgery, retinal detachment repair, and glaucoma treatment. You don't have to drive to into the city - we bring the doctors to you. The eye physicians and surgeons at the Eye Care Center are among the area's top specialists and are members of the teaching faculty at Strong Memorial Hospital.

Dedication to the Community

We're part of the community, and we work to make it better. The Eye Care Center was the presenting sponsor of the annual Better Life 5K Race that benefitted the FF Thompson Foundation for 15 years. Charity starts at home, but it doesn't stop there.We have held auctions to fund other local causes, such as the Battered Women's Fund, Salvation Army, the Seeing Eye Dog Fund, ABVI, American Diabetes Association, National Multiple Sclerosis Society and others.
