Dr. Ilan Cohen Advises Caution with Latest Flurry of “No Cost” LASIK Screening Offers
Date:12/20/2012

Old Bridge, New Jersey (PRWEB) December 20, 2012

“It has become very common these days for LASIK clinics to advertise "no cost" screenings to prospective patients,” said Dr. Ilan Cohen. “However, it is usually a much better idea to pay a modest fee for a truly unbiased LASIK screening exam.”

Dr. Cohen, director of 5th Avenue Eye Center, provides state-of-the-art New York and New Jersey LASIK and cataract surgical techniques. He hopes to educate people throughout the world that LASIK surgery is not necessarily right for every adult who has a vision problem that requires the use of contact lenses or eyeglasses.

“Many LASIK surgeons only offer one type of vision correction and sometimes use outdated equipment,” said Dr. Cohen. “The problem is if you get a free screening from a LASIK clinic that only offers one type of surgery, the doctor or his representative will usually only recommend the one service his clinic provides. It truly is a conflict of interest, but it happens many times a day all over the country.”

Thus, paying a modest fee for an exam from a corneal specialist who can make unbiased recommendations for all types of vision correction procedures is the best bet. If LASIK is not appropriate for a patient, PRK is an option that many modern LASIK-only clinics do not offer. In some cases, a cataract is the cause of vision problems and a skilled surgeon can combine removing the cataract with a special vision correction method.

“I don’t want to unnecessarily frighten people away from LASIK or similar surgeries,” said Dr. Cohen. “But any time you are considering having someone literally cut a flap into your cornea to change your vision, it is well worth it to do plenty of research and even spend a little more money than you originally planned.”

5th Avenue Eye Center is a comprehensive vision center with locations in Old Bridge, New Jersey as well as the Manhattan and Queens boroughs of New York City. Dr. Cohen, a graduate of Tufts University School of Medicine in Boston, was fellowship trained in corneal and cataract surgery at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee. His innovative techniques and ability to correct other surgeons’ mistakes has earned him international media attention on CBS, CNBC, and FOX News.
