How you see the world affects everything you do. Being dependent on glasses and contacts doesn’t suit a busy lifestyle, seeing through your own eyes will change your world. LASIK surgery is one of the best and most exciting medical procedures available and has transformed the lives of millions of patients.

Christopher Coad, MD, FACS specializes in iLASIK Surgery, the most advanced laser vision correction surgery available, and is known for correcting the vision of his colleagues and other well-known physicians. In addition to being one of the premier LASIK surgeons in NYC and the tri-state area, he also specializes in other vision correction procedures, such as Visian ICL and other lens implants, should a patient not be a candidate for iLASIK surgery. As a board certified ophthalmologist, Dr. Coad has performed thousands of vision correction procedures since 1989. Our comprehensive vision correction department which fuses the latest technology with a “hand holding” approach has made Chelsea Eye downtown Manhattan’s leading LASIK practice.

If you are interested in LASIK/vision correction procedures, schedule a free visit with our LASIK coordinator who will perform a series of tests to help direct you toward the vision correction procedure that best suits your needs. If you are a candidate for a procedure, she will schedule a private consultation with Dr. Coad. Once you meet with Dr. Coad, you will see why so many patients from New York and around the world, have entrusted their eyes to his care.

While these procedures are not generally covered by most health plans, some procedures may be covered through flexible spending accounts and 0% interest payment plans are available.  And often the cost of LASIK is less expensive than a lifetime of glasses and contact lenses.

  • "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."
