Save Money in the Long Run With Lasik

Are you an ideal candidate for Lasik eye treatment?

It’s eye-opening how much people are spending on glasses and contacts each year (approximately $16 billion each year for glasses and lenses, according to the Vision Council of America). If you are tired of shelling out money every few months or once a year for glasses or contacts then you may be wondering whether you should turn to our New York, NY, ophthalmologist Dr. Christopher Coad and his medical team Dr. Jay Yoon and Dr. Sherry Liu for Lasik.

What is Lasik? 

Lasik has been around for decades now, and it’s a safe, permanent refractive laser surgery designed to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and even astigmatism. Here at Chelsea Eye Ophthalmology in Manhattan New York, we’ve been performing Lasik on everyone from pilots to Olympic athletes. This painless procedure is performed right here in our office and it usually takes no more than 10 minutes per eye. Once Lasik is performed, most patients will never need to worry about glasses or contacts again.

How Lasik Saves Time and Money 

Think about how much you spend on contact lenses, glasses, or both each year. While Lasik may cost more upfront, this price will negate all the recurring expenses of annual vision checkups to renew or change your current prescription, as well as purchasing new glasses or a year’s worth of contact lenses. If you have a health savings account (HSA), this can also help you put money aside to pay for Lasik.

While saving money is always great, one benefit that you might not have thought about is the time you’ll save. You won’t have to worry about the minutes spent every morning cleaning and putting contacts in, as well as time spent taking contacts out and cleaning them in the evening. How often do you misplace your glasses? If you spent a good part of the day hunting down where you last left your glasses, Lasik can certainly save you time. After all, those minutes every day add up. How do you want to spend your time—do you want to spend it wrestling with contacts every morning or do you want to wake up and immediately be able to see?

Dr. Coad has been performing laser vision correction for more than 20 years. To schedule a Lasik consultation, call us at (212) 220-0066.

  • "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."
