Kung Eye Center in New Jersey and Staten Island offers patients All-Laser LASIK vision correction. LASIK or “Laser-Assisted In-Situ Keratomileusis” is an amazing innovation in vision correction that can offer freedom from the hassles of corrective lenses. The procedure has come a long way since it received FDA approval in the 1990s. It became the most common elective procedure in the world in 2002 and has since undergone groundbreaking advancements to improve its safety and accuracy and improve its results. LASIK has been deemed so safe and effective that the U.S. military and NASA have approved its use on pilots and astronauts. LASIK is life-changing for many of our patients and we love that we get to bring that kind of joy to the people of Staten Island and New Jersey.
For patients that are looking for a LASIK surgeon in New Jersey or Staten Island, Kung Eye offers the latest technology, combined with decades of experience. One patient said, “Dr. Kung gave me the best gift I’ve ever received, the gift of clear vision. Best of all, I get to open this gift every morning!” says New Jersey LASIK patient, Eric M.
LASIK vision correction can eliminate or significantly reduce one’s dependence on glasses and contacts. Throughout New Jersey and Staten Island, Kung Eye has helped thousands of LASIK patients and can help you too!
The cornea, or the front part of the eye, is shaped so that when light enters the eye it is directed perfectly on the retina at the back of the eye to produce a clear, sharp image. When the cornea is not shaped correctly, light will not focus properly on the retina and your vision becomes distorted. LASIK reshapes the cornea using a laser to achieve that ideal shape to focus light precisely on the retina, giving you better vision. LASIK can offer freedom from glasses or contacts when reading, driving, and carrying out other everyday activities.
