Dr. Chynn’s Publications

Dr. Chynn has published extensively, both nationally and internationally. He is first author on over a dozen peer-reviewed publications, including all three leading ophthalmic journals in the US.

Published Articles

In addition, Dr. Chynn has published over 100 articles in non-peer reviewed literature, including many in Ophthalmology Times, the #1 popular journal in ophthalmology (according to annual readership and sales figures, provided by OT).

These articles report on the latest advances in LASIK and the more advanced LASEK and epi-LASEK (epi-LASIK) laser vision correction techniques and are widely read by eye surgeons across the US – especially those who are unable to attend the prominent meetings covered (the American Academy of Ophthalmology, the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons, the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology).

Unfortunately for our visitors, Dr. Chynn wrote these articles not for the lay public, but for MD’s, PhD’s, Odds, and other doctors engaged in either clinical practice or research.

Nevertheless, it is both interesting and instructive to take a few minutes and read about the incredible advances going on in this field! Obviously, by attending meetings, conducting research, and writing, Dr. Chynn remains at the cutting-edge of this rapidly-advancing technology – assuring you of the latest in Laser Vision Correction expertise.

At Park Avenue LASEK, we know that an educated patient is our best customer!
