As a top-rated ophthalmologist with extensive experience in treating a wide array of vision issues, Dr. Cohen is uniquely positioned to offer patients in and around New York City and Central Jersey the most comprehensive treatment options for hyperopia, myopia, and astigmatism, including many LASIK alternatives for patients with specific vision needs.
LASIK is an extremely popular procedure for correcting vision problems, so it's no wonder it gets a lot of attention in the media. But the fact is, LASIK is just one of several options for treating myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism, and even presbyopia. Some of the other options include:
PRK, or photorefractive keratectomy, that reshapes the cornea without making a flap
Epi-LASIK and LASEK which, like PRK, do not use a corneal flap
implantable contact lenses or ICLs that rest in front of your eye's natural lens
Different treatment approaches can be ideal LASIK alternatives for people with significant vision issues or for men and women with very thin or very steep corneas.
Dr. Cohen is skilled in all types of vision-correcting surgery, and he has treated patients with all types of vision and corneal issues. After performing an in-depth exam and evaluation and discussing your expectations and lifestyle, he'll be able to determine all your options so you can compare the benefits of each and feel confident in the option you select.
Men and women with severe myopia can undergo LASIK, but the vision correction is often not ideal, which means there's a good chance they will still need to wear glasses to see clearly. Both clear lens exchange and implantable contact lenses can be a good solution for correcting severe myopia, and there may be other options as well. Dr. Cohen will be able to determine which options are available for your needs after evaluating your vision and the structure of your eye.
