Caring for your vision goes beyond ordering glasses and contact lenses, or routine eye exams. For patients with vision or eye-related conditions, Nantucket Cottage Hospital provides access to board certified ophthalmologists for diagnosis and treatment options without a trip to the mainland. Dr. Daniel Townsend, of Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital, travels to the island year-round on a monthly basis to see island patients. Please contact Dr. Townsend’s office at (800) 892-0626 to make an appointment. You may also see the current schedule on the NCH Clinician Calendar.
