LASIK Eye Surgery
LASIK, or “laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis,” is the most commonly performed laser eye surgery to treat myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness) and astigmatism. Dr. Pamel performs his refractive surgery procedures at his New York area offices using the Allegretto Wavelight laser. The newest technology in Custom LASIK Surgery, Allegretto Wavelight is safe, accurate, and has given a majority of patients better than 20/20 vision.

For patients who are not suitable LASIK candidates, PRK (photorefractive keratectomy) or LASEK may provide a better option that produces similar results to LASIK. While both PRK and LASEK employ computer controlled molecules to reshape the cornea, PRK does not involve the creation of a flap with a microkeratome.

Cataract and Lens Implant Surgery
Dr. Pamel provides two intraocular lens options to our cataract patients: a monofocal lens implant and a multifocal lens implant. The monofocal lens implant helps to correct a patient’s distance vision or near vision, while the multifocal lens implant can correct a patient’s distance and reading vision.

Laser Cataract Surgery
One of the first laser eye surgeons in New York to offer laser refractive cataract surgery, Dr. Pamel uses the Optimedica Catalys Precision Laser Platform femtosecond cataract system. This advanced treatment option automates the first steps in the cataract surgery procedure leading to improved precision, which can be consistent with better surgical results for patients.

Multifocal Lens Implants
Multifocal lens implants are designed to give patients the greatest freedom from eyeglasses. Surgery to place this intraocular lens (IOL) can correct vision far away, up close and all distances in between.

Verisyse™ Lens Implants
Verisyse™ phakic lens implants are a treatment option for patients with extreme eyesight issues. A phakic lens implant is a lens implant that is placed within the eye for the purpose of correcting different types of vision problems.

Ocular conditions that result in irreversible scarring, swelling, or thinning of the cornea will require a corneal transplant in certain instances to restore vision. Dr. Pamel, a skilled ophthalmologist, has successfully performed this delicate procedure on many patients over the years, helping to alleviate the effects of such corneal disorders as corneal clouding and keratoconus.
