Advanced LASIK

What Is Advanced Lasik In New York, Manhattan, NY?

Board Certified Ophthalmologist and top NY LASIK/LASER eye surgeon, Christopher T. Coad, MD, FACS, has been performing LASIK/LASER eye surgery (and other vision correction procedures) in New York, NY since its inception in the early 1990’s and today he primarily uses iLASIK. Because of Dr. Coad’s experience and extensive testing to ensure a patient’s candidacy for treatment, 99% of our LASIK patients achieve 20/20 or better with less than 5% needing enhancements.

LASIK/Laser Eye Surgery is one of the safest and most rigorously studied procedures performed today. However, not all LASIK procedures are the same. For the crispest vision and safest treatment, we use the most advanced blade-free customized correction technology. This is known as iLASIK.

Why Choose LASIK?

Two components make iLASIK the most advanced LASIK technology. First is the Intralase laser used to create the flap, as opposed to the earlier method of using a blade. This femtosecond laser creates a flap that is minimally thinner and structurally strong. It is so precise that it is similar to etching your name into a piece of human hair. The second component is CustomVue, which creates an individualized map that identifies and measures a patient’s eyes 25 times more precisely than standard measurements for glasses or contact lenses. This technology provides enhanced laser alignment and accuracy, decreasing human error, halos, and blurriness.

Some people may have heard a negative story about LASIK due to the press exploitation of rare cases of unexpected outcomes. The truth is most patients experience a positive life-enhancing outcome. LASIK centers focus on profit and will offer older technologies at a discounted rate to all patients, even poor candidates. We are a well-established, comprehensive eye care medical practice with 24-hour emergency accessibility. The safety of your eyes is our main concern. Dr. Coad is conservative about who he will perform iLASIK on. If you are not an excellent candidate for this procedure, other vision correction solutions may be more appropriate, and he may suggest these treatments.

LASIK can also easily fit into busy schedules. We have evening treatment sessions and can see patients early in the morning the next day after their surgery so they can go right back to work.

What Is The Cost Of LASIK Eye Surgery?

If cost is a concern, you should know that the iLASIK procedure is less expensive than a lifetime of glasses and contact lenses. It’s a great investment! Just watch “The Savings Experiment” video above produced by We also have payment plans available at 0% interest for 12 months.

  • "Cannot recommend Dr Coad & his lasik coordinator Nicole enough. They are wonderfully supportive and gentle that even if you are nervous it will be difficult to stay that way around this supportive duo! Without a doubt recommend going to see them, they are worth the additional care and cost for a full-service experience that are there just to help you & give you the best vision possible. Thank you Dr Coad & Nicole."

  • "Dr. Coad and his staff made the experience of having a cataract removed the best it could possibly be, from evaluation to discussing options to being reassuring when the surgery began, to follow-up. The evaluation process was efficient, yet at no time did I feel as if it was anything but personal. His staff at all times were both professional and welcoming. Vace, the surgical coordinator, did everything to make sure the surgical process went smoothly.
    As to Dr. Coad himself, I can't say enough. His skill is absolutely top-notch, but it was the concern that he took in making sure that I understood all of my options, and his reassuring manner before, during and after the surgery which makes it easy to recommend him to the fullest to anyone who needs ophthalmic care."

  • "Had a five star experience at Chelsea Eye! I went to Dr Yoon for an eye exam and she was extremely friendly, helpful and down to earth! I have met all the staff and they are very friendly and easy to talk to. Hugo in particular was wonderful to work with during the exam. It was a breathe of fresh air coming to this practice and I highly recommend going here for an Optometry appointment or Opthalmology appointment with Dr Coad."

  • "Can I please take a moment and talk about how awesome Dr. Jay Yoon is?!

    I would be friends with this woman! I went in freaked out about a blood vessel on my eye and in total hypochondriac mode (is it a stroke? Is this connected to my brain? Is it gonna spread?). She laughed and calmly said "looks like you've always had this and it's fine and here are some drops cause your eyes are dry and here's my great primary doctor who I recommend since you don't have one."

    She was very funny and relatable and cool - she didn't try to rush me away and she was honest about everything too and so helpful.

    I've already started recommending her and now I'll do it on here: book an appt and be treated so warmly."

  • "Dr Coad and Nicole were both absolutely wonderful. After my brother had LASIK surgery, I decided to go ahead and do the same.

    Both Nicole and Dr. Coad are very proficient in their work. They answered any and all questions that I had, and calmed every nervous feeling that arose from the start, up until the surgery.

    Going through the surgery I was EXTREMELY nervous and Dr. Coad walked me through the entire procedure (before and during) and made my whole LASIK experience a breeze.

    I can not recommend them enough. If you are interested in LASIK Dr. Coad is the only doctor I would trust."

  • "This team is the absolute best. Christine is a gift from the gods and makes you feel comfortable supported and amazing. She really got me through my anxieties about my recent lasik surgery - which went great! Dr Coad is the best. A fantastic team, a simple process - I highly recommend this team - if you've ever considered lasik (like I have for the last 20 years) make an appt with this great group. You'll be happy you did."
