In the late 1990s, Dr. Coad preformed LASIK surgery to correct my nearsightedness. Back then the procedure was still somewhat new, but he put me at ease. Everything went exceedingly well and the procedure lasted all of a few minutes. Later that night, after a nap, I was watching a subtitled film, to my delight, without glasses.

Today my vision is still great and I've never had a problem. I can highly recommend Dr. Coad to see if LASIK is right for you, and am happy to say over a decade later Dr. Coad is still my optometrist.

I visited Dr Eviatars' office on July 15, 2010. I was looking to have lower eyelid surgery, known as blepharoplasty. \r
\r
First, I had a free consultation with his staff Amy Eidelman who spoke of a under going a lower lid retraction & I later met with Dr Eviatar for a paid consultation of $200. Dr. Eviatar said he would not perform a lower lid retraction and what I needed was Juviderm injections which would be the same cost as the ""lower lid retraction"". I decide to think it over.\r
\r
I did some research on ""lower lid retraction"" and talked with an expert plastic surgeon and the Chief of Plastic Surgery at Manhattan Eye, Ear and Throat Hospital on this subject. As I discovered in my research and the highly esteemed and reputable Dr at Manhattan Eye Ear and Throat Hospital confirmed, a ""lower lid retraction"" is a condition, not a procedure, as I was told by Dr Eviatar and his cosmetic consultant Amy Eidelman. The Dr at Manhattan Eye Ear and Throat Hospital reccommended no surgical procedure at that point in time and highly discourged injections in the eye area. \r
\r
I did not appreciate being given misinformation by Dr Eviatar and his staff in an effort to persuade me to undergo injections, so that Dr Eviatar could perform a quick 15 minute procedure of injecting Juvaderm into my face and collect a fee of $1500.\r

The last time I had an appointment, I was greeted by virtually every person saying hello to me in a very welcoming and honest way. I've been a patient for eye care and cosmetic care, and everyone is great here. Let's start with the eyes. I am a contact lens wearer, which means I occasionally run out. I have swung by in the middle of my work day, and they have given me a spare disposable lens due to a tear or oth issue. They've called to check in on any eye problem after the fact. They just care!
As for the cosmetic side, they are unbelievable. Dr. Eviatar is an artist. He really takes pride in his work. It continues to advance as I go back, but he's really open and honest about how products will work. And Jane is the best! Love her! She takes her time with whatever spot or discoloration is on my face-which has been sooooo many. And she lets me know what to expect with discomfort. Being thorough when it comes to my face makes me feel the money is worth it, and the added bonus of a good time is priceless. Thank you, Chelsea Eye and Cosmetics, for giving me back so much confidence.

I was and am happy with Dr. Coad who operated on my cataracts. I also had Lasix surgery at the same time and
like the results.
However, 3 bad experiences with the staff. One time I ordered a new pair of contact lenses. When they came in, I told the technician I couldn't see out of them. He insisted I needed to get used to them. I had been wearing contacts for decades and never had to get used to a new pair. Long story short, they were the wrong presciption, which Dr. Coad confirmed.
Also, you have to be careful about hidden fees which are not explained upfront. I had a surprise for my surgical follow-up visit. I assumed the visit was included in the surgical fee ($1500 per eye and hundreds more for the drops-my friend's doctor gave her the drops!). I was billed for the visit. After challenging the fee, it was waived.
Then my sister was charged originally $350 to have her
contacts FIT in addition to the $150 for the lenses. She was not told in advance of all these fees. It's a struggle to discuss these exorbitant charges because the staff always has an answer. (They will probably respond to this review with excuses). I have to see if I really need to use Dr. Coad again - I like him as a doctor but don't need the aggravation and unusually high fees.
