Learn more about New York LASIK eye surgery and how it can change your life in as little as 15 minutes!

New York LASIK surgery is quick, virtually painless, and can be remarkably affordable. In the hands of a skilled, board-certified New York LASIK surgeon like Dr. Ilan Cohen, LASIK can improve the vision of nearly anyone with nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism. And, if you are not a good candidate for LASIK for some reason, there are so many other options available to solve your unique vision problems. Dr. Cohen is a fellowship trained cornea and refractive surgeon who is an expert at all laser vision correct procedures.

 

What is LASIK surgery?

New York LASIK | Ilan Cohen MD

The term “LASIK” is actually an acronym for a much longer title: Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis. LASIK surgery involves creating a flap in the cornea of the eye to reshape it and correct your vision problems. There are several ways to accomplish LASIK vision correction, including with a microkeratome (a blade device) or a laser keratome (laser device). During your New York LASIK surgery, a flap is cut into the cornea and then laser pulses are used to reshape the tissue. At the end of the surgery, the flap is replaced and your eye heals in a matter of a few days.

The entire LASIK procedure takes no more than 10 to 15 minutes for both eyes! You’ll be able to drive the following day and return to work in 24 to 48 hours.
