Refractive Surgery Co-Management

Our Astoria optometrists will evaluate your eyes and discuss your visual goals to help determine if you are an appropriate candidate for LASIK, PRK or Cataract Refractive Technology. If you have appropriate goals and there are no contraindications for the procedure, we will recommend a pre-operative evaluation to determine suitability for refractive surgery. This evaluation includes:

  • Counseling on refractive surgery options
  • Eye dominancy testing
  • Review of eye history and refractive stability
  • Medical evaluation of the cornea and eye
  • Current Refraction Status

If after the preoperative evaluation, the decision is made to proceed with surgery, your information will be forwarded to the surgeon, a pre surgery consult with a surgeon will be scheduled. Post-operative management will be provided by our doctors, and includes multiple visits over a period from the date of surgery to include medical evaluation and management of the vision and corneal healing. Evaluation of any additional needs such as reading glasses, sunglasses, or enhancement laser procedures is also included. For Eye Emergencies you can call us on (718) 956-3000

To our valued American Eye Care community,

While it is our goal to serve our community, in support of New York City’s efforts to increase social distancing and help curtail the spread of COVID-19, we have made the difficult decision to temporarily close our office. As the situation unfolds, our highest priority is the health and safety of our patients, team members, and neighborhood. As the COVID-19 crisis continues, we will be reaching to let you know that American Eye Care will remain closed beyond our initial reopening date of March 30. We are closely monitoring the situation nationwide and in our local community, and will keep you informed when the decision is made to safely reopen the practice.

If you experience an emergency during this time, please reach out to the New York Eye and Ear Infirmary.

New York Eye and Ear Infirmary 310 East 14th Street, New York, New York 10003, 212-979-4000

We hope you and your families stay safe and well, and we appreciate your understanding and continued support. We look forward to reopening our doors to our community.

Thank you!
