What LASIK Can Do For You

Customized Solutions: Exploring LASIK Alternatives

Discover the transformative advantages of LASIK at the Cohen Eye Institute and achieve sharper, clearer vision. Among the many benefits, the most notable are:

  • Quick Results: LASIK often provides immediate results, allowing you to enjoy clearer sight almost immediately post-procedure.
  • Freedom from Eyewear: Liberate yourself from the cost of glasses or contacts.
  • Improved Lifestyle: LASIK opens the door to activities without the encumbrance of glasses or contacts, enriching your lifestyle.

Beyond these factors, our procedure is both safe and painless. Don’t miss your opportunity to get better vision and an improved quality of life.    

We understand that LASIK may not be the perfect fit for everyone. That’s why we offer a range of customized solutions to cater to diverse vision correction needs. These alternatives to LASIK are also offered at our Elmhurst location:

  • PRK (Photorefractive Keratectomy): Ideal for those with thinner corneas, PRK involves reshaping the cornea’s surface to correct vision.


  • SMILE (Small Incision Lenticule Extraction): A minimally invasive option, SMILE corrects nearsightedness without the creation of a corneal flap.


  • ICL (Implantable Collamer Lens): Suited for those with extreme refractive errors, ICL involves implanting a lens inside the eye to enhance vision.


  • RLE (Refractive Lens Exchange): If you have presbyopia or significant lens changes, RLE replaces the eye’s natural lens with an artificial one.


Our expert team, led by Dr. Cohen, has extensive experience in a variety of corrective eye surgeries. If LASIK isn’t the optimal choice for you, rest assured that we can find a personalized solution to bring clarity to your vision.

The Next Success Story Could Be Yours

Dr. Lipchak

Multifocal Implant

"I am an optometrist and chose Dr. Cohen for my cataract surgery with a multifocal lens implant because over the last 20 years of knowing him and referring many of my patients to him, he never made a mistake. I didn't feel a thing during the surgery. I couldn't be happier with my vision. I am happy with my choice of lens and excited that I never have to have anything done again!"


LASIK Patient

"Dr. Cohen came extremely recommended to me. I saw the results of other people that I know and really wanted to get a surgery too. I actually wanted to get it done a few times before, but he said, I am not ready yet, because I was abusing my contacts. I had to stop wearing them for a while. My vision a day after was 20/20. Thank you so much Dr. Cohen! You are a life saver."


PRK Patient

"I work in Manhattan. I am an operating engineer. When I was 14 years old I needed a cornea transplant on my right eye. I really couldn't see well even after the surgery. I recently went to Dr. Cohen and he did a procedure on my right eye. It drastically improved my vision. I can actually street signs and news paper and television."


The cost of LASIK eye surgery in Old Bridge depends on the specific procedure and individual case however the range for LASIK is typically between $1,500 – $4,000 per eye. Ask about our affordable pricing options to learn how you get LASIK for as little as $7 a day. 

LASIK is FDA-approved for individuals aged 18 and above. However, many surgeons advise waiting until the mid-twenties, as vision changes may persist until then. Each individual is unique and may or may not be a good candidate for LASIK depending on several factors. The best way to know if you are an ideal candidate is to get a consultation with an ophthalmologist at our Old Bridge office to evaluate your case.

Our expertise extends beyond just LASIK eye surgery and not everyone is a good candidate. That’s why we also offer PRK (Photorefractive Keratectomy), SMILE (Small Incision Lenticule Extraction), ICL (Implantable Collamer Lens), RLE (Refractive Lens Exchange), and other alternative vision correction procedures.
