About Park Avenue LASEK
A SafeSight Lasek procedure is non-invasive. There is no cut made into your eye with a metal blade or any other cutting laser, as it is done with Lasik procedures.
Dr. Emil William Chynn, MD, proprietor of Park Avenue Lasek, is New York City's most experienced no-cut, no-flap, all laser surgeon. Dr. Chynn has performed over 17,000 procedures in his career, and was the first Lasik surgeon in New York City to receive Lasik surgery himself in 1999. He switched his procedure to the more effective SafeSight Lasek procedure in 2003.

He completed his residency at the world-famous Harvard University’s Massachusetts Eye & Ear Infirmary, where he was on the teaching faculty of Harvard Medical School, and a colleague with the inventors of the SafeSight procedure.After Harvard, Dr. Chynn chose to spend an additional year completing a full fellowship in Corneal Transplantation & Refractive Surgery at Emory University in Atlanta, under George Waring, MD, who introduced radial keratomy and Lasik to the United States.
