Tending to beauty and beauty beholders since 1981, Dr. Stewart Levine practices oculoplastic surgery and minimally invasive cosmetic procedures. After the patient chooses two of the three eligible areas—between the eyebrows (glabella), forehead, and crow's-feet—a short series of injections expels creases in a fashion similar to ironing a dog-eared paperback. Many patients experience only mild discomfort and no downtime, returning directly to work or home despite the throngs of smitten face touchers. Results garnered by the procedure can last up to six months.

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.
The experienced ophthalmologists at Manhattan Lasik Center have successfully sharpened the vision of more than 50,000 pairs of peepers using some of the latest technology in the field. They only perform LASIK and laser vision-correction surgeries at this facility, so patients can count on specialized expertise in the doctors' care and their prowess at laser tag. Free consultations help to determine which option from their menu of treatments is best for individual specs wearers.
When it comes to laser vision correction, the doctors and technicians at Diamond Vision have a lot of options for their patients. Their most well-known treatment, LASIK, gently reshapes the cornea with a minor incision and a laser while LASIK's entirely bladeless cousin, Intralase, uses only lasers. Then there's the photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) procedure, which shapes the cornea directly but requires slightly more downtime. They also offer a few non-laser-based solutions as well that can permanently relieve vision problems or temporarily give patients X-ray vision.
Ophthalmologist Dr. Alexander Hatsis has performed tens of thousands of refractive surgical procedures since 1985, and uses his experience to train other surgeons at several area universities. At Hatsis Laser Vision—providing services on Long Island since 1995—Dr. Hatsis performs LASIK and PRK eye surgeries with the aid of Custom Vue procedures and WaveScan-based digital technology, which helps pinpoint individual imperfections that older methods could not detect. When correcting nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism, he relies on ultrathin IntraLase and excimer lasers to etch prescriptions into the cornea so that incoming light will focus on the retina. He also stores all patient records electronically so that computers can analyze data, helping to ensure safety.
