Laser Vision Correction Center
Our Laser Vision Center at Weill Cornell Eye Associates is one of the most modern and aesthetically beautiful facilities in New York. Unlike other centers where patients do not meet the surgeon until the day of surgery, at Weill Cornell Eye Associates the surgeons personally perform all of the pre and postoperative care.
We believe a strong doctor-patient relationship is the cornerstone of success in vision correction surgery. Your first visit to the Weill Cornell Laser Vision Center is complimentary and will give you an opportunity to meet our extraordinary staff and surgeons and to see our state-of-the-art facility. Initially, we will perform a thorough examination of your eyes using the latest diagnostic equipment to assess whether vision correction surgery is right for you. Safety is our team’s number one priority.
The examination will be followed by a review of the results of your tests with one of our refractive surgeons. All of your questions regarding refractive surgery will be addressed and a plan to meet your specific vision needs will be developed.
We look forward to meeting you and sharing our enthusiasm and expertise in vision correction procedures with you.

Our practice uses the most up-to-date VISX Star S4 Excimer Laser which offers individually customized wavefrontguided ablations as well as Iris Registration for perfect treatment alignment. Our Laser Vision Center is home to the new 60hz Intralase femtosecond laser for performing iLASIK (bladeless LASIK) and SBK (sub-Bowman's keratomileusis). Our surgeons also offer advanced surface ablation procedures such as PRK and LASEK.
Although historically associated only with laser-based surgeries, today vision correction surgery also encompasses intraocular procedures such as cataract extraction and clear lens-replacement with premium intraocular lenses (ReSTOR, ReZoom, and Crystalens) as well as implantable contact lenses (Verisyse and Visian IOLs). The surgeons at Weill Cornell Eye Associates will work closely with you to explore all appropriate vision correction options. We will also be one of the first centers in New York to receive the brand new VISX Wavefront Monovision upgrade upon its release.
Our state-of-the-art laser center is NOT open-access like most other centers in New York. The center is solely owned and operated by the surgeons at Weill Cornell Eye Associates and is only available to our patients.
