Tired Of Wearing Your Glasses?


Find out if LASIK is exactly what you’ve been looking for to get better eyesight!

Wouldn’t it be great to wake up every day and see clearly without glasses or contact lenses?  If the answer is yes, consider laser vision correction at Chelsea Eye Ophthalmology in New York, NY. Our laser vision surgeon, Dr. Christopher Coad MD, FACS, can help you determine whether LASIK is right for you.

What is LASIK?

If you want to correct your vision without needing to wear glasses or corrective lenses, then it might be time to consider LASIK. The LASIK procedure performed at Chelsea Eye Ophthalmology is known as iLASIK. The iLASIK procedure is a laser only procedure with no blades. iLASIK uses advanced laser technology by combining the IntraLase Method and Advanced CustomVue correction to correct your vision. What this means is that the procedure can correct most visual imperfections WITHOUT the use a blade, such as in older LASIK procedures. In fact, this is one of the safest ways to correct your vision.

What are the benefits of getting LASIK?

If you want to correct your nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism, then LASIK is a treatment that you may want to consider. During the procedure, our New York LASIK surgeon, Christopher Coad MD, FACS, will tailor the treatment to your specific needs and your unique eyes. LASIK will help you to see the world with clarity and with freedom from eyeglasses or contact lenses. LASIK is an investment in excellent vision and quality of life!

How does iLASIK work?

At Chelsea Eye Ophthalmology, we perform the most advanced LASIK procedure, called iLASIK. A comprehensive and thorough eye exam will be performed to determine candidacy for iLASIK. Once you pass the screening process, a customized blueprint of your eye will be mapped.

Advanced CustomVue correction uses the WavePrint system to painlessly measure and map the uniqueness of both of your eyes, right down to the minutest characteristics individual to you. This 3D mapping technology creates a blueprint (or fingerprint) of your eye. This blueprint will also be able to detect even the slightest issues so that we can create a customized treatment that fits your specific needs and visual aberrations.

Then, a cool beam of laser light is used to gently reshape the surface of the eye (the cornea), to painlessly correct your vision with our precise laser technology.

If you are interested in finding out whether LASIK is right for you, take the first step in seeing the world with clarity! Call Chelsea Eye Ophthalmology at (212) 220-0066 to schedule your consultation with Dr. Christopher Coad, our Castle Connolly Top Doctor and New York Super Doctor. Clear vision is a call away!

  • "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."
