An undisputed leader in her field, as evidenced by the name recognition of many of her patients, Dr. Belmont has performed over 40,000 eye procedures to date and counting.

Trusted for her impeccable care and medical knowledge, Dr. Belmont will walk you, the patient, through the process of your LASIK/No-Cut LASIK treatment and design a plan that is best suited to your unique vision correction needs.

(For more, see “Reasons to Choose Dr. Belmont.”)

Dr. James Wynne, co-inventor of the excimer laser for laser eye surgery, has stated that, “The reason I chose Dr. Belmont to perform laser vision correction on my son is because she is by far the most meticulous; a direct consequence of her training as a cornea transplant surgeon, where attention to detail is paramount. As a co-inventor of the excimer laser, I had the opportunity to observe and interview many of the other laser vision surgeons in NYC.”

Dr. Belmont has been at the leading edge of development in laser vision correction from the field’s inception. She was among a select group of eye surgeons — the first in the U.S. — to participate in the original FDA evaluations of the excimer laser for laser eye surgery, PRK and LASIK. As such, she is superbly proficient with all the latest technology and techniques.
