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.
