Our Mission

​​​​​​​I welcome you to Manhattan LASIK Center ® (MLC) for this wonderful and important occasion.

At MLC our goal is to provide our patients with the priceless gift of natural vision without dependence on glasses and contact lenses. This should be a very exciting moment in one’s life to put an end to years of blurry vision. At the same time, it could also be intimidating to many individuals to have a surgeon and a laser work on their most precious sense, i.e. their eyes, especially for those who never wore contacts or were unable to insert contacts in their eyes.

Dr. Kevin Niksarli

In recognition of his impressive credentials, extraordinary surgical skills, and excellent patient care, Dr. Niksarli has been listed as one of “America’s Top Ophthalmologists.” He has also been awarded the prestigious VISX Star Award, granted to fewer than 5 percent of LASIK providers in the United States.

That’s why at MLC we invest in the latest technologies to make this journey the safest, least invasive and easiest to undergo for our patients. All our four state-of-the-art locations are equipped with the latest ZEISS Femtosecond lasers that allow for the no-flap SMILE-LASIK procedure.

We are the pioneer in SMILE-LASIK technology in the US, and performed the first SMILE-LASIK procedure on the East Coast five years ago. Our surgeons Dr. Niksarli and Dr. Buchsbaum together have the most experience in the Nation in SMILE-LASIK procedures. We have surpassed 10,000 successful SMILE cases as of 2022.

SMILE-LASIK is the least invasive Laser Vision Correction option and combines the benefits of other Laser Vision Correction options. It does not involve the creation of a corneal flap, as opposed to the classic LASIK procedure. This eliminates any possible flap complications, preserves the corneal integrity, and leads to quicker recovery.

Combining the most advanced technology and the most experience is a great way to maximize your results following this remarkable procedure. Since our inception over 20 years ago at the heart of Manhattan, highest quality vision correction surgery has been our primary focus. Our technology and experience is unparalleled not only in NY-tri-state area, but also in the Nation.

If you have any trepidation or hesitation to have a surgeon point a laser to your eyes, you owe it to yourself to consult with our surgeons at MLC for this most advanced and least invasive version of Vision Correction procedure. We welcome your input and questions during your visit at Manhattan LASIK Center®, and look forward to making this ‘vision improvement’ process a rewarding, enjoyable, and memorable journey for you.
