$1,895 for a Laser Vision-Correction Surgery or LASIK for Both Eyes ($4,200 Value)
At four clinic locations, eye surgeons utilize LASIK and PRK/Lasek laser technologies to improve eyesight and obfuscate the need for corrective lenses. After machines map a diagnostic of each eye’s inner workings, a microkeratome blade forms a miniscule flap in the cornea, and an excimer laser delivers a chilly beam of concentrated photons to restructure the cornea and improve its communications with the retina. Most patients can return to their routine the next day, noting only occasional eye dryness and vision fluctuations. Those who do not qualify for LASIK often qualify for the PRK/Lasek vision correction, which utilizes the same laser technology without cutting the corneal flap.
NY NJ Lasik
NY NJ Lasik stretches its five fully equipped clinics, including a Manhattan location for fuzzy-sighted New Yorkers, across its two neighboring East Coast states. Each facility is presided over by its own board-certified ophthalmologist who specializes in the use of laser-based technology, such as LASIK and PRK, to restore eyesight lost to astigmatisms and far- or nearsightedness. Over the past 15 years, they have performed upward of 50,000 of the outpatient laser procedures, turning once-squinty patients into crystal-clear seers.
The clinics’ lineup of expert eye docs includes Dr. Mark Buchsbaum and Dr. Irida Llambiri, both of whom regularly engage prospective LASIK patients in complimentary consultations. During these brief meetings, they either deem the patient to be a suitable candidate for LASIK, recommend an alternative surgery, or advise patients to remove their photographic memory's lens cap.
