Pioneering Investigation into Ophthalmology

This is a presentation that Dr. Chynn has been invited to give all over the world including ESCRS which is the #1 refractive organization in Europe and ASCRS which is the #1 refractive organization in America

The reason is because he has performed more advanced surface ablations than any other doctor in the world.

When you review this PowerPoint presentation, you should take away two points:

  • If you have an extreme prescription and you were told by a doctor that you couldn’t have LASIK, don’t give up. It doesn’t mean you can’t have LASEK!
  • Our non-cutting technique is SAFER for everybody, because it’s non-incisional and it will leave everybody with a thicker, stronger cornea in the end, which is safer.

Dr. Chynn graduated from Harvard’s ophthalmology program, which is probably the most famous in the world.

As the only member of his graduating class to specialize in Refractive Surgery, and now an recognized authority, Dr. Chynn is frequently invited back to Harvard to give updates on the State of the Art in Refractive Surgery.

This slide show presentation was given to 100 eye surgeons who flew in from across the country to learn the latest advances in glaucoma, retina, cataract surgery–and laser vision correction (from Dr. Chynn).

The title of his talk reflects the movement in the US and worldwide from leading surgeons that is called “Back to the Surface.” This means that surgeons are moving away from LASIK and IntraLase, to avoid flap complications and the # 1 problem causing lawsuits (iatrogenic keratoconus, or KC), and back to the surface.

For some doctors, this means going back to the original procedure, PRK, which has a lot of pain, delayed healing, and scarring.

For Dr. Chynn, this means performing an Advanced Surface Ablation, which is either a LASEK or epiLASEK. These are more advanced than PRK because they do not hurt, healing and recovery is quick, and there is no haze or scarring. For example, Dr. Chynn performs over 1,000 LASEKs and epiLASEKs per year–he performed his last PRK in 1999.

Obviously, he moved away from PRK to LASIK, then to IntraLase, and now back to the safer LASEK and epiLASEK procedures.

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.

This Form Will Be ANSWERED by Dr. Chynn HIMSELF - NOT a Salesperson!

Dr. Chynn graduated from Dartmouth + Columbia + Harvard + Emory + NYU and has been featured on CNN, ABC, NBC, CBS, Discovery Channel & in the NY Times & Wall St. Journal

He's performed 1,000 PRKs, 5,000 LASIKs, 15,000 LASEKs - more than any surgeon in the US
