Advanced All-Laser iLASIK Technology
Since laser vision correction was introduced well over a decade ago, there have been steady advancements in technology, leading to enhanced safety and visual outcomes. Most patients are surprised to find that traditional LASIK involves the use of a metal blade. With All-Laser LASIK performed at Stahl Eyecare Experts, the metal blade has been eliminated, offering a premium level of safety and accuracy. Thanks to iLASIK, most people who meet the general age and health requirements are candidates and iLASIK has earned FDA approval to treat the broadest range of vision imperfections including nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.
With iLASIK, recovery is amazingly fast, allowing you to get back to what matters most. In fact, most patients resume normal activities as soon as the next day.

Making LASIK Affordable
Frequently Asked Questions About LASIK
Recovery from LASIK takes a long time.
Most patients notice an immediate improvement in their vision after surgery. In the following days, vision is further improved and most patients can return to work the next day.
LASIK doesn’t treat astigmatism.
LASIK treats astigmatism extremely well. In fact, those who have LASIK to correct astigmatism often have a better quality of vision after surgery than before with glasses or contacts.
My prescription needs to be stable before having LASIK.
Many people believe they are not good candidates for LASIK because their prescriptions may not have stabilized. The best way to determine if you are a candidate for LASIK is to undergo a FREE consultation.
I’m too old to have LASIK.
Patients’ age range from teens to seventies. There are effective treatments for patients who wear reading glasses, and even people over 70 may be candidates following cataract surgery.
LASIK is painful and risky.
Patients say they feel little or no pain and often tell us their worries were unnecessary. LASIK is widely regarded as one of the safest elective procedures in modern medicine. It has some of the highest levels of patient satisfaction of any procedure according to results of a worldwide study.
LASIK is a luxury I cannot afford.
LASIK is an investment that can actually save you money. When you factor in what you’ve already spent on glasses, contact lenses and solution every year, LASIK is an affordable solution. Stahl offers payment plans, financing with zero percent financing and participates in a number of insurance plans that make LASIK very affordable.
LASIK is new and there aren’t any long-term results.
Research has shown that LASIK is an effective way to treat common refractive errors such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism, with over 20 years of proven results. During that time, millions of procedures have been performed worldwide.
Complications are common after LASIK.
Many clinical studies and reports show that the risks for LASIK are very low and most complications can be treated and resolved in the early stages. Simple side effects, such as temporary dry eye or night glare, resolve without further treatment after several weeks or months.
After LASIK, I won’t need glasses or contacts ever again.
Each patient experiences unique results from LASIK. Some achieve 20/20 vision and end their dependence on corrective eyewear. Others find that reading glasses are still needed since as we age, naturally occurring conditions can impair vision.
It doesn’t matter who performs my LASIK procedure, since the laser does all the work.
This is perhaps one of the most dangerous LASIK myths. While the laser is a truly innovative tool essential to the LASIK procedure, it is only a tool. The surgeon’s degree of skill is absolutely essential during this delicate procedure and in using the laser. The surgeons at Stahl have the best training and experience to make your LASIK correction a success.
Long Island LASIK Real YELP Reviews
This was LIFE CHANGING and I’m so happy I finally had it done. Going from -6.25 in one eye and -5.50 in the other to being able to actually function with no glasses or contacts is amazing after all the years I went with them.
East Moriches, NY
I am beyond pleased to say I put my trust in the right doctor. I am now 20/15 and my quality of life has drastically improved. The recovery period was very quick- I was back to work on post-op day 2 (though I really could have gone back the following day). I felt that the whole process went incredibly smoothly. I have recommended Dr. Werner to anyone who mentions to me that they are considering LASIK.
Dr. Huffnagel was amazing and made me feel so comfortable that I signed up for the surgery. I would recommend Stahl to anyone looking to bite the bullet and get LASIK. All I have to say is – What are you waiting for?
PRK Long Island
Photorefractive keratectomy, or PRK, is an effective vision correction option for patients who are nearsighted, farsighted or even those with astigmatism. PRK uses an excimer laser to reshape the cornea for improved vision. However, no corneal flap is created; instead, the outermost layer of the cornea is loosened and gently brushed aside.
The next step is identical to LASIK. The VISX Star S4 excimer laser, utilizing either iDesign or CustomVue software, is used to reshape the inner layers of the cornea. PRK takes only minutes to perform and the procedure is painless. Most patients are able to return to their daily activities within 48 to 72 hours after PRK, and their vision continues to improve for up to three months.
Depending upon your unique vision and lifestyle, your Stahl Eyecare surgeon will make the best recommendation for your vision correction procedure.
