    Meet Dr. Sandra Belmont


    Sandra Belmont, MD, a highly regarded, board certified ophthalmologist and LASIK surgeon, has helped tens of thousands of New York patients achieve clear vision without glasses. An undisputed leader in her field, as evidenced by the name recognition of many of her patients, Dr. Belmont has performed over 50,000 eye procedures to date and counting. She is deeply committed to providing the best possible vision correction results for each and every one of her eye surgery patients.

    Dr. Belmont has worked with some of the most recognized celebrities as their go to eye doctor. Her combination of sensitivity and attentive listening with a personalized level of care results in optimal long-term results from complex surgical procedures. Belmont Eye Center is the premier location for a personalized level of care in the safety of a top eye surgeon.



    A renowned ophthalmologist who is sought after by patients from all parts of the globe, Dr. Belmont prides herself on her attention to details and genuine investment in each patients care. Dr. Belmont is also a coveted lecturer and recipient of numerous awards, including the American Academy of Ophthalmology’s Award for Distinguished Services and the Richard C. Troutman, M.D., Master Teacher Award in Ophthalmology for “her contributions in making laser vision correction the safe and popular procedure that it has become.” Through her highly competitive, one-year corneal fellowship program, Dr. Belmont has trained and mentored 17 cornea-specialist Fellows to date.





    PRK, LASIK and their laser vision correction variants are all FDA approved for the treatment of nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism and presbyopia for patients that wish to be unburdened of a dependence on glasses and contact lenses. A comprehensive, thorough examination is effected during your initial consultation to insure that you are a good candidate for the procedure. The exam rules out anything that may disqualify you from benefiting from the treatment. Some conditions that may disqualify a patient include but are not limited to: a visually significant cataract, unusually thin, or unusually shaped corneas, retinal conditions that hinder one’s visual acuity and are not correctable with glasses or contacts, etc… Once all of these have been ruled out, the diagnosis can be limited to either nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism or presbyopia. These manifest as a consequence of the shape of the eye, where the eye is too long or too short (nearsightedness and farsightedness, respectively), or where the cornea is shaped more like a football than a baseball (as is the case for astigmatism). Presbyopia, the age-related inability to focus on near that develops as we reach our fifties can also be addressed with laser vision correction. Dr. Belmont will discuss the LASIK or PRK procedure that is best suited for each patient and explain in detail what to expect during and immediately following the treatment as the patients heal post-operatively. There is no sensation in the course of undergoing a LASIK or PRK procedure and typically, most patients are able to return to work and driving in a matter of days.
