In addition, emergency eye care is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week through the Department of Ophthalmology's Urgent Care Center at University Hospital of Brooklyn at 445 Lenox Road..

Patients presenting at this location will be seen initially by an ophthalmology resident who is in direct consultation with an on-call ophthalmology attending physician.

Referring Physician Contact

The ophthalmologists of non-referred patients are called by the resident/attending at the time of the patient visit. For referred patients, referring physicians will also be notified of patient results the same evening of the patient's emergency visit, if possible. If not, they will be contacted the following morning.
