A non-cutting procedure that is safe for people with thin corneas and high prescriptions.
Leaves more cornea untouched and thus stronger in every patient.
Avoids the dry eyes and night glare caused by cutting a flap. Higher chance of 20/15 vision, with preop testing and postop exams by real MDs, with a staff who has also had LASEK.
By a surgeon who has degrees from Dartmouth, Columbia, Harvard, Emory, and NYU, who will do everything in his power, using his excellent training and.. extensive personal experience, to give you the best possible vision for the rest of your life.
I waited a bit over three and a half months to post with a final verdict and I can easily say I am really glad to have chosen to have my eyes corrected here(after all, how many times will I be able to say that in the future! lol). The staff at Park Avenue Lasek were all really friendly, relaxed and professional. I had absolutely no pressure at all into getting any specific procedure done and they made sure I was a proper candidate and that I understood the process very well before I decided to go through with it all. They were extremely helpful with every step of the process, answered any questions I had and although they were a bit strict with us taking the precautions necessary afterwards, it has been well worth the result. They were also extremely flexible when it came to medical insurance and helped to make sure I got the best coverage possible for my medications. After 1 week, I went from seeing 20/80(had only 1 eye corrected) to 20/25. After two months, I have got 20/15 vision! I have absolutely no side effects like dryness or pain at all(at this point). Can't be more happy about that. It's been a pleasant experience and I would definitely recommend Dr Chynn and his staff. Although Lasek is a bit more pricey than the traditional Lasik option, it's well worth the safety and the overall better result.

I actually contacted Park Avenue Lasek by accident for a different eye procedure and I'm so glad I came across them! I ended up getting the procedure done elsewhere since Dr. Chynn was out of town, but then decided to move forward with getting laser eye surgery done here. Dr. Chynn and his staff know what they're talking about. Period. Every question I've asked has been met with nothing but professionalism and a genuine desire for me to have all the info I need. All the staff members are friendly and I personally love Dr. Chynn. People may not get his sense of humor and be offended, etc. but I actually love it and think he's super funny, which helped alleviate any anxiety I may have had about the procedure. He is very efficient and as a result, doesn't beat around the bush, which I definitely appreciate. p.s. What sealed the deal for me was the fact that Dr. Chynn PERFECTED this process. I mean, why go anywhere else when you can go directly to the person who perfected it? He does the surgery in a room that has glass walls, so that anyone walking outside can see it as well. Talk about super confident! That's what I would want from any doctor doing a serious procedure on me.

I have nothing but good things to say about my experience at Park Avenue LASEK, the only non-cutting center in New York. It's the only office that exclusively performs unique HD vision via their SafeSight non-cut technique, developed at Harvard while Dr. Emil Chynn did his fellowship there. The patient care and concern they have here are superior to all the rest; I even had the opportunity to meet with patients who have already had the surgery and are seeing 20/20 and better. Their practice manager also had her surgery with Dr. Chynn and is seeing 20/15! From my free consultation down to my graduation, everything was handled professionally and smoothly, with my concerns and safety in mind. Because of the care and attention I received from their 4 refractive MDs (most places only have optometrists working on your eyes), knowledgeable interns, and technicians, I have absolutely no complaints and would recommend this procedure to everyone who wants to see their best in the safest way possible! I would recommend this surgery to anyone that wears glasses or contacts or has anything less than 20/20 vision, and wants to see the world in high definition- a value that cannot be matched anywhere. I am happy that I had the surgery and am glad to report that I do not and will not ever have the problems that LASIK patients can have. Go to www.ParkAvenueLasek.com now or call 212-741-8628, for the only center to do laser vision correction that will never cut your eye.

Dr. Chynn is very personable, experienced and knowledgeable. If you want to be pampered, I suggest that you get that at a SPA but if you want straight-forward result, then Dr. Chynn is the BEST Lasik doctor in town.

My eyesight is AWESOME!! It's been so good to be able to live contact and glass free. I'm thankful that I met Dr. Chynn and that I have perfect eyesight! He is one of the friendliest doctors ever, and his staff is great, too.

Dr. Chynn is devoted to the positive outcome of the procedure and that made me feel completely comfortable. I now look forward to waking up each day to beautiful surroundings. Thank you Dr. Chynn!

I'm a fashion designer, and kind of nervous, so Dr. Chynn did 1 eye at a time, and gave me Valium and laughing gas! So the experience was kind of fun instead of scary!

Never thought intralasik with Dr Chynn would be so good. It was better than I expected. I have better vision and more comfortable than when wearing the soft contact lens. The process was really very easy. The consult and measurements took about two hours. The surgery couldn't have taken more than five minutes. Dr Chynn is truly a great surgeon and made me very comfortable from the first time I met with him. He is a humble unassuming person. I was very happy with the whole process, his staff, the equipment and Dr Chynn himself. I did not have to wait long on my post op visits.

I was a little nervous at first, but Park Avenue Lasek did a great job and was very helpful. They thoroughly explained the process and made the whole experience wonderful. My vision has improved drastically and it has changed my life.
