Dr. Sorenson is a board certified ophthalmologist specializing in vitreoretinal surgery and macular disease. He is a nationally recognized expert in the care of age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and in the surgical management of retinal detachments as well as macular hole and macular pucker surgery. He is a part of the team of the VRMNY retina specialists and is on the surgical staff at New York Eye and Ear Infirmary and Manhattan Eye, Ear & Throat Hospital.

Office environment is very nice and staff is very courteous and accommodating. Dr Sorenson is very patient with his patients. He takes time to go over all results and answer questions. I was very pleased with the visit and I would highly recommend the doctor and the practice.


He has authored and co-authored over 100 articles in peer reviewed journals and has lectured at many scientific meetings throughout the world. He has participated in many of the teaching activities of the American Academy of Ophthalmology and in 1996, received its Honor Award for his services.
