When you come to our vision center to learn about LASIK eye surgery in Bronx NY, you will be seen by one of our expert ophthalmologist, either Dr. Gary R. Fishman our Medical Director, or Dr. Simon Wu. Many patients come to see us to receive LASIK vision correction and other eye surgeries which include cataract surgery, as well. LASIK eye surgery is an extremely safe and effective procedure for patients who have been found to be excellent candidates for the treatment. This is why it is so important that our patients have a pre-LASIK exam to make sure that they are well suited to this type of vision correction. When patients are not well qualified for treatment with LASIK, they may not experience the vision improvement they are looking for, or in some cases, vision can even be made worse. We also offer PRK, photo refractive keratectomy, for those patients who may not qualify for LASIK vision correction. LASIK is an FDA-approved procedure for the treatment of nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. During LASIK surgery, the shape of your cornea will be corrected; the cornea is the clear covering of the front of the eye. When LASIK is performed, a flap in the cornea is created, and pulses from the laser will reshape the cornea so that the eye will be able to have the proper refraction. Our eye surgeons are highly experienced and respected in the field.

At Vision Center of New York, one of the main services we provide is LASIK 10467 vision correction – and our patients are thrilled with the results!
At Vision Center of New York we provide the highest quality of eye care for our patients in a welcoming and stress-free environment. Our center is state-of-the-art, both in terms of technology and services performed. Our Medical Director is Dr. Gary Fishman — a refractive specialist who provides LASIK and refractive cataract surgery to minimize patients’ dependence on glasses. LASIK 10467 is a common FDA-approved procedure that treats nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. The way LASIK works is to change the shape of the cornea. The cornea is the clear covering over the front of the eye. A laser is used in this surgery to create a flap in the cornea. A computer-controlled laser reshapes the cornea to change the resulting refraction. This change in the cornea will correct the way the light entering the eye is focused onto the retina. This will create clearer vision for the patient.
Our LASIK 10467 surgery is growing in popularity, and is a commonly requested eye surgery at our practice. We generally perform LASIK surgery using only local anesthesia. Usually the procedure goes very quickly, and is completed for both eyes in less than 15 minutes. The patient will begin to see improvements in vision in as little as 24 hours. In order to have LASIK surgery, our patients must be thoroughly evaluated to make sure they are good candidates for successful LASIK surgery. This evaluation will include a complete review of the patient’s medical history, eye health history, and a complete eye examination. If it ends up that you are not a good candidate for LASIK surgery, there are other surgeries that we may be able to offer to improve your eyesight. Your eyes do not require any stitches or bandages after the surgery. The entire process is generally totally painless for the patient. If you would like to visit our practice to see if you would benefit from LASIK surgery, contact us at Vision Center of New York to make an appointment.
