COVID-19 Update

To our Valued Patients: We would like to update you regarding MLC's preparedness in these unprecedented times. Following the temporary suspension of our activities, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, MLC looks forward to serving you very soon with full-time operations. Currently, we operate with restricted hours. In this post-Covid-19 world, we are committed to ensuring the safety and well-being of our patients and staff. In the interim, we continue to offer convenient Virtual Consultations with one of our SMILE-LASIK consultants via video call which can be scheduled online or by phone 212-759-9617

MLC is uniquely positioned to adapt to the challenges and changes occurring in this “new normal” environment. To that end, we have expanded our procedure slots from 10 am to 7 pm, 5 days a week, and select times on weekends. With our unparalleled flexibility and ability to accommodate every individual in a private environment, where there is no interaction with other patients, MLC is able to ensure the ultimate safety and peace-of-mind.

At MLC we are the only center in the US with 2 top-of-the-line Zeiss Visumax lasers, 2 full-time most experienced LASIK, and SMILE surgeons, Dr. Niksarli and Dr. Buchsbaum, 3 large patient reception areas, and 4 exam lanes. That means we are able to scatter patient visits significantly, and on your surgery day, chances are, you will not even encounter any other surgery patient. This is in stark contrast to other low priced centers where patients are lined up on the same day and the “1-day a week surgeon” is scheduled to come in for a few hours to complete 15-20 patients’ surgeries in a limited time.
