Transform Your Vision at Eye Center of New York

LASIK eye surgery in New York City reshapes the cornea to allow direct focusing of light on the retina. This transformative procedure aims to eliminate or reduce the need for corrective lenses.

About LASIK

LASIK is one of the most commonly performed refractive surgeries in the world. The procedure has been refined over the last 20 years with continued improvements in efficacy and safety. Recent studies have shown that LASIK can be safer than lifelong contact lens wear and more economical. Make an appointment to see if you’re a candidate for laser vision correction and the life-enhancing benefits of the procedure.

Dr. Raviv offers the latest and most advanced type of LASIK, which is blade-free, custom Wavefront LASIK, also known as iLASIK. This technology is the same approved by NASA for astronauts and the Navy for Naval aviators.

Who Is a Candidate for LASIK?

LASIK eye surgery in NYC is suitable for individuals with common refractive errors, such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. Eligible candidates should have good overall eye health and a stable prescription for at least one year. Dr. Raviv generally performs LASIK for those 21-40 years of age. Between ages 40-50, presbyopia, or loss of reading vision, sets it, and LASIK has to be decided on a case-by-case basis. After age 50, Dr. Raviv utilizes a more comprehensive vision correcting procedure–RLE–to correct distance and near vision.

Why Choose Dr. Raviv for Your LASIK in NYC?

Personalized Service

Unlike corporate-run, LASIK-only companies, Dr. Raviv offers a personalized LASIK patient experience within the setting of a full refractive surgery ophthalmology practice. He will screen and examine all potential patients, perform state-of-the-art surgery, and conduct important postoperative follow-ups.

Top Quality

Many discount LASIK centers offer tiered pricing and advertise a teaser price for a basic, older type of LASIK that utilizes a blade and is not wavefront customized. Dr. Raviv only offers the most advanced LASIK for the greatest safety and visual quality. All flaps are created with the Intralase femtosecond laser. All treatments are custom wavefront-guided whenever possible, allowing a fingerprint reading of your eye’s optical surface to be corrected down to the micron.

Experience and Judgment

Dr. Raviv has performed LASIK since the late 1990s and has the wide surgical skill to handle all potential complications as a fellowship-trained cornea surgeon. Dr. Raviv turns away about 20% of potential LASIK patients because they are not ideal candidates for the procedure and face increased risks. Furthermore, Dr. Raviv will guide prospective patients to other refractive procedures that may be more appropriate for them. For example, after age 55, many patients would benefit from refractive lens exchange, multifocal or accommodative implants, or laser cataract surgery over LASIK.
