Life is beautiful. Here are 5 reasons to take action TODAY so you can see all of it clearly, through your own eyes!

  1. LASIK is FAST 

LASIK works by using cool laser beams to reshape your cornea to correct the errors that are causing your poor eyesight. It takes Dr. Cohen only about 15 minutes to correct both eyes! Most patients spend no more than one hour for the entire process, which allows Dr. Cohen time to properly check your corneal flaps before you go home after surgery. You’ll be able to drive the day after the procedure and return to work within 24 to 48 hours. 

“The procedure went by very quickly, believe it or not, and the actual time when they’re working on your eyes is very very fast.” Frank Beres; Cohen Eye Institute LASIK patient

  1. LASIK is virtually PAINLESS

Most patients are surprised that LASIK surgery is so easy and painless. When Dr. Ilan Cohen performs your New York City LASIK surgery, he will first numb your eyes with anesthetic eye-drops and you will feel nothing at all. Some patients may feel a little pressure during the short procedure, but there is never any discomfort. In the hours after surgery, any minor irritation you feel can be alleviated with artificial tears and a good night’s sleep. 

“So, it was a little bit uncomfortable when the doctor was trying to put the tool to open up your eyes, and you kind of like stare. But other than that I didn’t feel any pain at all.” Effendy W.; Cohen Eye Institute LASIK patient

“It’s so nice sleeping and waking up and seeing; and watching TV and falling asleep on the sofa and not having that guilty feeling about not taking your contacts out.” Elizabeth S.; Cohen Eye Institute PRK/LASEK patient 

  1. LASIK is SAFE

Any surgery comes with some risks but when performed by a highly-qualified and skilled surgeon such as Dr. Ilan Cohen, LASIK is safe. With Dr. Cohen as the surgeon, better than 99% of his LASIK patients have no complications at all and are thrilled with the results of their surgeries. You may be in the small group of patients who experience a minor complication, but Dr. Cohen will discuss each of these thoroughly with you before surgery so you’ll know what to expect. Fortunately, because LASIK technology has vastly improved over the years and Dr. Cohen is one of the most skilled LASIK surgeons in the nation, your risk of complications is very low.

“I …looked for someone who was precise with a high degree of attention to detail, and Dr. Cohen certainly demonstrated that… He re-checked the measurements three times… That was very impressive to me, that someone took so much care in making sure that the measurements were correct.” Gavin Samuels, M.D.; Cohen Eye Institute LASIK patient
