Helmed by Dr. Michael Ahdoot, a team of countenance curators smooths and tightens faces with Botox and Juvéderm injections. Noninvasive Botox injections battle a bevy of facial blemishes, including hyperhidrosis, crow’s feet, and chronic winking emoticons. Most patients enjoy their results for up to six months.
Board-certified ophthalmic surgeon Alexander Wu can reduce the signs of aging with the nonsurgical Botox treatment. During the procedure, face skin is safely injected with a purified protein to help straighten out creased brows, erase forehead lines, or fill in the grooves left by nesting crows. Problematic patches generally stay smooth for three to four months. If clients are not satisfied with the de-wrinkling after a week, Dr. Wu can perform a free touch-up to ensure visages appear as youthful as a freshly minted baby.
Diamond Vision’s quartet of doctors boasts extensive experience with LASIK’s CustomVue IntraLase eye-correction procedure—so extensive that they regularly teach it to other doctors. Each doctor has completed a long process of fellowship training, licensing, and certification to refurbish eyes suffering from varying degrees of nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. Though controlled low-temperature lasers and fine blades are the main components of their medical toolkits, they also implement iris registration to customize procedures and measure tissue properties with devices such as an Ocular Response Analyzer and Oculus Pentacam camera.
Diamond Vision's fabled clientele includes a menagerie of celebrities such as Tiki Barber, Mickey Rourke, and Tito Nieves, the reigning king of salsa. Decades of research, development, and practice have refined LASIK's eye-mending technology, so customers can rest assured knowing a career in dart throwing or seeing around corners is not only possible, it's definitely possible.
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.
Although they established Astoria LASIK Surgery & Eye Care only in 2011, the certified staffers have already made a name for themselves, earning a Best LASIK Center award from the Queens Courier. Equipped with three comfortable waiting areas, four specialized office suites, and 16 spacious examination rooms, the multipurpose health-care center serves the medical, dental, and vision needs of all five boroughs. The doctors, nurses, and administrative professionals speak Spanish, Greek, Hindi, and Arabic, among other languages, and their eco-consciousness makes for a virtually paper-free environment except in their restrooms and really cool, super-top-secret forts where stacks of newspapers act as foundational beams.
A second-generation eye surgeon, Dr. Julia Giyaur specializes in blade-free LASIK operations that are cutting edge in every sense but the literal one. In two locations in Brooklyn and Rego Park, Dr. Giyaur provides basic eye care such as check-ups and surgical vision correction, treatments for conditions such as cataracts, glaucoma, dry eye, and astigmatism, and a few aesthetic services such as Botox and Restylane. A LASIK patient herself, Dr. Giyaur helps allay her clients’ fears or concerns on her blog, covering recently asked questions and common ocular ailments.
