Are you tired of wearing glasses or contacts every day? If you're nearsighted (myopia), farsighted (hyperopia) or have distorted vision (astigmatism), you've really had no other choices for vision correction. That is, until LASIK surgery came along! Performed by New York Ophthalmologist, Dr. Christopher Coad MD, FACS, LASIK surgery has helped people see well without corrective lenses for more than thirty years. Could LASIK be right for you?
What does LASIK surgery involve?
Your New York Laser Surgeon offers LASIK surgery to qualified patients over 21 years of age. LASIK reshapes the cornea, which is the clear, rounded portion of the eye. The cornea aids in focusing the everyday images that you see.
Our patients go through a comprehensive review of their medical history and unique eye structure to determine if the surgery can correct their particular vision problems. If it can, our LASIK Surgeon, Dr. Christopher Coad MD, FACS, performs the entire surgery, including all aftercare examinations.
As a leader in laser vision correction, Dr. Coad is a fellow of the American College of Surgeons (F.A.C.S.). He has been a pioneer in laser refractive surgery and has performed thousands of LASIK and refractive procedures since vision correction surgery was approved by the FDA in the early 1990’s. Dr. Coad has been featured on TV, radio, and in the press for his outstanding work and has been recognized by his peers as a Castle Connolly Top Doctor and a New York Super Doctor.
