David H. Abramson, MD -- Chief, Ophthalmic Oncology Service, Department of Surgery

I am a board-certified ophthalmologist with specialty training in opthalmic oncology. I am Chief of the Ophthalmic Oncology Service at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, the only service of its kind dedicated to ophthalmic oncology in a cancer hospital in the US. Because of our close association with specialists in pediatrics, radiation oncology, and medicine, we are able to offer coordinated, state-of-the-art care with access to novel therapies and clinical trials not available anywhere else in the country.

Ophthalmic oncologists are ophthalmologists who specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of cancer on the surface of the eye, in the eye, and in the tissues around the eye (the lids and orbit). I have a joint appointment in Surgery, Pediatrics, and Radiation Oncology.
