$2,200 for LASEK Surgery for Both Eyes ($6,000 Value)
Following an hour-long pre-qualifying meeting, Dr. Matta corrects the blurry vision of qualified patients with LASEK eye surgery. During this quick, 20-minute procedure, he numbs eyes with drops then creates a thin flap in the very outer layer of the eye through which to reach the cornea. This temporary door is thinner than the one created during LASIK surgery, thus reducing some risks and opening the procedure up to some who may have been ineligible for LASIK. A laser reshapes the cornea, then a protective soft contact rests on the eye for three to four days to promote healing and muffle excited irises' shouts of joy.
New York Eye Institute
Dr. Ayman Z. Matta founded New York Eye Institute after completing a fellowship at the Bucci Cataract and Laser Vision Institute in Pennsylvania. Certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology, he not only specializes in refractive procedures, but also performs surgery to ease ailments such as cataracts, glaucoma, and tears made of grapefruit juice. His colleague Dr. Paul N. Guerriero focuses more on retinal diseases, including macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy, while the optometrist on staff, Dr. Seung-Hee Choi, doles out glasses and contact prescriptions, plus pre- and post-op care.
