The goal of your LASIK consultation with Dr. Kelly is to determine if you’re a good candidate for the procedure. Dr. Kelly will go over your medical and eye health history, measure your eyes, take images, and perform other exams to evaluate your eyes. If you’re a candidate for LASIK in NYC, your treatment options will then be discussed.Learn more about your consultation
After you’ve had your LASIK consultation and it’s been determined that you’re a candidate, your personalized treatment plan will be created and you will meet with our surgical coordinator. The LASIK surgery usually only takes 10-15 minutes for both eyes, and after a few hours of blurriness, most patients are thrilled to discover that they have 20/20 vision or better.Learn more about your journey

Got Lasik this summer and highly recommend to everyone thinking about Lasik! Incredibly friendly and professional staff made the whole process smooth and worry free. They definitely don't just see you as a customer, the staff remembers me and they always took time to make sure I was 100% comfortable.
Both of my brother’s had a great experience with Dr. Kelly so I decided it was my turn to toss away my glasses and finally get Lasik. From making my free consultation to meeting Dr. Kelly and his team everything has been a breeze. Everyone is extremely friendly and knowledgeable. Day of my procedure I was kind of nervous but everyone reassured me everything was going to be fine, and it was. The procedure was super quick. You’ll experience slight burning and teary eyes as you’re recovering but nothing too bad. I’m so happy with my decision and the care I got from Dr. Kelly and his team. Just wish I did this sooner!!
I'm writing this review less than 48 hours from my Lasik surgery. I had my post-op check-in and my vision is already at 20/15 (and I think even better). Dr. Kelly and his entire staff are incredible. From the moment I walked in for my consultation, to my check-in today, I couldn't have asked for a better experience. I've been wearing glasses/contacts for the last 20+ years at this point, and I'm still in shock waking up today and seeing in the quality I do now. Dr. Kelly and his staff gave me the gift of vision, and I couldn't recommend this practice and team more. Thank you Dr. Kelly and team, you guys are amazing.
I’ve been going to Kelly Vision for the past couple of years just for my annual vision checks and I finally decided to move forward with getting my vision corrected. It was the best decision ever! The staff are so friendly and attentive and they made my entire experience comfortable. I had PRK done and they explained the procedure step by step and informed me of all the things I would experience post-op. It’s been a little over a month and I can now see 20/15 clearly. I absolutely recommend their services!
