Our practice consists of corneal surgeons and optometrists who have been leaders in the field of laser vision correction since 1994. From our inception, we have been dedicated to providing the hightest level of safety and the best outcomes in LASIK surgery.We are committed to being leaders in he development of new technology so that we can always offer the best results with the greatest safety to our patients. We have continued to participate in clinical trials to expand the scope of treatment with laser vision correction, and did pioneering work that led to the development of the Intralase laser. Our practice participated in the clinical trials that led to FDA approval of excimer lasers, and was the first to bring LASIK to the New York metropolitan area in 1995 at the New York Eye and Ear Infirmary. We have done pioneering work on preventing eye infections and screening for conditions that cause irregular corneas keratoconus. We are among the first to start using the Orbscan and Pentacam elevation topographers in refractive surgery, and we have done pioneering work on the diagnosis and treatment of dry eye. We have also developed and patented the most accurate formula for calculating intraoculas lens implant power when cataract surgery is required after LASIK. We begin with a meticulous pre-operative evaluation, at which we will tell you if you are or are not a good candidate for surgery. We do not rush patients into surgery; for every patient who wears contact lenses, a determination will be made of the appropriate period for discontinuance of contact lens wear prior to surgery, ensuring that the cornea is in optimal condition. We take our time in the laser suite with each patient to produce the best results. We do not depend on radio or TV advertisements, or pay celebrities for endorsements; instead, we have always depended on recommendations from satisfied patients. This allows us to devote our resources to purchasing the latest technology and maintaining it at the highest levels of performance, and to rigorous staff training and education. We offer two different types of lasers and wavefront analysis so that we can tailor the surgery to best meet the needs of each patient. Every patient who comes to our office for an evaluation agrees that our experience, concern for your well being, and the difference in the level of care is clear. You only have one set of eyes, and your vision and quality of life are our greatest concerns.
