    Why Choose Us?


    Cornerstone Eye Associates has delivered high quality eye care to the Rochester area for the last 50 years. In addition to our long history of excellence in ophthalmic surgery, our refractive surgeon, Omar Hanuch, MD, has performed thousands of cases and has been involved in refractive surgery through research and clinical practice for the last 22 years.


    At Cornerstone Eye Associates we believe that making your visual goals attainable is a team effort. Whether you see Dr. HanuchDr. Chaisson or Dr. Emily Hanlon they will take the time to discuss your visual requirements for work, family, social and sporting activities. This allows for the customization of the procedure to fit your individual needs. We have experience in several technologies and will choose the one that is the safest and most effective for your vision.


    Our Bausch and Lomb Zyoptix WaveFront custom laser sets a new standard in laser vision correction. Zyoptix unparalleled technology and unprecedented clinical results provides confidence to individuals who may have been undecided about getting laser vision correction. In fact, clinical trials for FDA approval showed that 99.7% of patients said their quality of vision was improved after vision correction with the Zyoptix system. In addition, our femtosecond laser is the only one of its kind in the area with real time topography, making the process safer for each patient.


    At Cornerstone Eye Associates, we closely monitor every step of your experience and follow a strict protocol to ensure the best results and safety. Our experienced staff has been involved in thousands of surgical procedures and understands the meaning of surgical safety.


    FDA clinical trials showed 91.5 % of patients had 20/20 or better vision following the LASIK Zyoptix procedure. Our combined results approach 95% of 20/20 or better vision. We are able to achieve this high level of accuracy by applying our own treatment nomogram, as well as Bausch and Lomb’s advanced nomogram, (a set of measurements specific to each patient) that is entered into the laser before performing refractive surgery. Nomograms are calculated by evaluating patient treatment results over the years.


    We offer the highest quality possible at the best value in the region. We are able to achieve this by combining our LASIK center with our large general Ophthalmology practice, therefore reducing our overhead expenses and reflecting these savings in our low fees without compromising quality.
