Dr. Finger is certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology and is a Fellow of both the American College of Surgeons and the American Academy of Ophthalmology. He is fellowship trained in ocular tumor, orbital disease, and ophthalmic radiation therapy. He is considered a world leader and specialist in radiation treatment of the eye. 

He has researched and developed new methods of diagnosis used around the world. These include new applications of high-frequency anterior segment ultrasound (“ultrasonic biomicroscopy,” or UBM), OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography), digital imaging. He believes in small incision surgery and therefore invented the “Finger Iridectomy Technique” biopsy for iris and ciliary body tumors and FACT micro incision orbitotomy technique for orbital tumors. 

In terms of treatment, Dr. Finger is widely known to invent palladium-103 plaque radiation therapy for choroidal melanoma which has resulted in improved outcomes compared to other plaques and proton beam (See Dr. Fingers’ Results Page). He is also known for discovering anti-VEGF therapy for radiation retinopathy and radiation optic neuropathy.

At The New York Eye Cancer Center, we want patients to understand their diagnosis, alternatives of treatment and to see their current status. This is why Dr. Finger placed 4K 55″ inch HD displays in each examination room. Using photographs, OCTs, ultrasounds and angiograms, Dr. Finger and his staff can teach patients everything they need to know about their eye tumor.

Dr. Finger is looking for a motivated, compassionate and dedicated physician to join his practice. If you are striving for excellence, join us!
