    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 utilize Bausch and Lomb’s state of the art technology to assure rapid detection of any contraindications or possibility of rare complications early in the evaluation process.

    State of the art technology

    STATE OF THE ART TECHNOLOGY
    Our Nidek Quest Excimer custom laser sets a new standard in laser vision correction, the only laser system in the upper NY Region with the latest FDA-approved technology: topography-guided custom treatments. This advanced technology also has proven to reduce the symptoms of glare, halos, and poor night vision associated with higher order aberrations, or the subtle refractive errors in your vision.

    Safety Protocol

    SAFETY PROTOCOL
    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.

    Results

    RESULTS
    In a study comparing the effectiveness of available LASIK lasers in the US, the Nidek Quest laser outperformed the other lasers with better outcomes 6-months after the treatment! 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 (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.

    Affordability

    AFFORDABILITY
    We off the best value in the region when you consider our experience and investment in unique and cutting edge equipment and technology. 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.

    Patient Testimonials

    Dr Hanuch went over the procedure and what to expect. Having such a soft spoken physician explaining what he was doing was throughout the procedure helped keep me calm. LASIK it is a life-changing experience. I would recommend it to everyone!

    The staff is amazing and if you are looking to do LASIK, it is a life changing experience. I was very hesitant, nearly 10 years, to do this procedure. I regret not doing it 10 years ago, the results are amazing! I would 110% recommend this staff to anyone thinking about doing LASIK!
