Our Team

Park Avenue LASEK combines the traditional values of a small private practice with the most innovative medical advances in ophthalmology.

At Park Avenue LASEK our staff is here to make your experience as smooth and pleasant as possiblethroughout every stage of your process. Ask us anything about your procedure, we are here as a resource for you!

Dr. Chynn and Park Avenue LASEK have a unique philosophy, which is based on openness, honesty, and mutual benefit.

Dr. Chynn and Park Avenue LASEK are a 100% non-cutting, non-invasive laser vision correction centre in New York City.

We invite people in to watch live surgery, and invite patients to freely share their experience with other patients.  We don’t even monitor this interaction (after we get the patient’s permission), because we want both parties to be able to interact freely. This allows the customer to get it “straight from the horse’s mouth.”

Other laser centers typically segregate their preop and postop patients, because they don’t want any possibility for a postop who is not perfectly happy speaking to potential customer.

Dr. Chynn actually encourages this interaction, as he wants people to have “realistic expectations” (in terms of recovery time, etc.) so we can meet or exceed them. In terms of mutual benefit, we operate on the “pay it forward” philosophy.  Our patients are almost always to help support or “coach” a potential patient, as they have often had that assistance themselves!

...offers you the opportunity to have a Free Remote Consultation with the surgeon! Ask Dr. Chynn your main question or concern, and will answer, personally, within 2 business days!

Unsure whether you're a good candidate because of a lot of astigmatism? Large pupils? Dry eyes? Maybe you were rejected by LASIK surgeons due to a “thin cornea” or high prescription.

Take advantage of this incredible opportunity to find out if LASEK is an option for you from Dr. Chynn, our famous, cornea fellowship-trained, Columbia & Harvard graduate who’s in MENSA & was the 1st eye surgeon in NY, NJ, CT & PA to get LASIK, & has performed 1,000 PRKs, 5,000 LASIKs, 10,000 LASEKs, and 5,000 epiLASEKs

But please be considerate. Dr. Chynn gets paid $1,000/hour as a consultant for expert networks & expert witness, so please limit yourself to your most pressing question or concern, as he’s doing this for free on a trial basis to help interested patients.

Please include the information below in your email so Dr. Chynn can answer your question specifically.
