Emil Chynn, MD, MBA, who has been on CNN, ABC, CBS, Fox, Discovery Channel, Howard Stern, and Millionaire Matchmaker, but also has degrees from Dartmouth, Columbia, Harvard, Emory, NYU, and is in MENSA, is going to do something never even attempted before–“call his shot” and make someone who’s already 20/20 BETTER than 20/20–and do it LIVE STREAMED on the internet.

New York, NY (PRWEB) July 01, 2014

Park Avenue LASEK’s patient coordinator, Mark Callanan, never wore glasses in his life–because he was 20/20. He was unaware that people could even see better than 20/20 until he started working for Dr. Emil Chynn, of Park Avenue LASEK–when he started to notice that many of the LASEK patients were seeing 20/15 after surgery!

He wanted “super-normal” vision himself, because many patients raved about “being able to see the seams on a fastball” after their LASEKs. So Mark asked his boss, “Why can’t I see like our patients do–better than 20/20?”

Dr. Chynn thought about it, and explained to Mark that if he were still performing LASIK, he wouldn’t even consider operating on a patient with “perfect” vision–the risk/benefit ratio wouldn’t be favorable…doing so might even be considered unethical.

But with the new, safe, non-cutting LASEK procedure that he helped invent at Harvard and has continuously refined for the past 15 years, he was fully confident that he could make Mark “super-normal”

Dr. Chynn cut a “PreVue” lens with the laser, which allowed Mark to see exactly how he would see in “HD” after his procedure. Mark took the lens home to test it out, and came back the next day, saying “I’m in–I have never, ever seen this sharp, my entire life!”

On Thursday at 5PM, Mark is going to go under the laser, and is going to “live stream” his entire procedure with a GoPro camera, in the ONLY all-glass OR in the world, with the public and press attending–all so the world can see just how safe LASEK is, and watch him get to BETTER than 20/20–in 20 seconds!

After making Mark better than 20/20, Dr. Chynn will offer this same HD LASEK procedure to 1 member of the US soccer team at no charge–and make him better than 20/20, too!

When William Watson, an employee of the Yankees and Knicks, walked into Park Avenue LASEK’s practice two months ago, he had lost all hope. Having been blinded in his left eye two decades ago because of a football accident, he had a totally white, scarred eye without a pupil or iris, so disfiguring that he always wore a hat and shades to avoid eye contact because of his “scary appearance.” William was resigned to living the rest of his life without even letting anyone take his picture because he was self-conscious. Then he met Dr. Chynn.
William noticed PAL’s “all-glass operating room” (the only one in the country) when we was walking by, watched a live LASEK from the sidewalk, and came in. Dr. Chynn immediately told him that he could not make that eye see again—but that he could change his life. Only a handful of eye surgeons in the US know how to perform a true corneal tattoo—not injecting a clump of dye into the cornea (which would only make a blotchy pupil), but to hand-craft and match the other iris exactly, using a specialized tattoo machine, to make it so realistic the casual observer wouldn’t be able to tell which was the blind eye. Dr. Chynn learned this technique from Doyle Stulting, MD, PhD, Past President of the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery, who was his preceptor during his Fellowship in Corneal Transplantation and Refractive Surgery at Emory University.
The operation involved many steps over several days, including removing the scar with a metal blade, dissolving calcium with EDTA, polishing the surface with a micro drill to prepare the surface—and finally using a special, very fine tattoo needle, and adjusting the settings for the minimum speed and length of needle travel so as not to perforate the eye (the cornea is only 0.5 mm wide).
One month after his corneal tattoo, which was covered by Discovery Channel, William visited his family down South, and they all cried at seeing him look “normal” and happy and confident for the first time in his life.

My Experience at WTC Ground Zero on 9/11, by Emil William Chynn, MD, FACS, MBA as told to ACSH.org

In 1993, I was doing my internship at St. Vincent’s Hospital in Greenwich Village. I remember one night in February, every doctor was told not to leave the hospital. We were told that a terrorist had set off a bomb at the World Trade Center in a parking garage, and to stand by, because we were the only Level I Trauma Center in lower Manhattan. I was rotating in the ER that month, and was supposed to go “off duty” at 5PM (having started the day the prior 5PM—this was before maximum work hours for doctors in training were actually enforced). So instead, I stayed “in house” with everyone else, and waited for the victims to come in.

We waited around until that night before the 1st ambulance pulled up to the loading bay. This was weird, because we could see on TV that the attack happened hours ago, and the drive from WTC to SVH by ambulance should only take about 15 minutes. Why the several hour delay? We later discovered that the triage process is unfortunately very slow in an unexpected terrorist attack (because there are no “resources” on site; as opposed to an event like the Super Bowl, where they put medical and security forces in place in advance, etc. So, when all the MDs and nurses were waiting in the ER for patients, the ambulances had to be staged, the roads cleared, the area secured, which took hours.

WTC-9-11-MeAsMDVolunteer-1  Dr. Chynn’s 9/11 experience WTC 9 11 MeAsMDVolunteer 1Therefore, when the Twin Towers were attacked the 2nd time on 9/11, and I saw them burning from my apartment building (I used to live in the West Village), rather than head to New York Eye & Ear Infirmary, which was calling for medical volunteers, I thought, “Why don’t I just head down to the scene, where I can be of more immediate help?”

There was no public transportation downtown, because by that time the subways and buses were shut down. You also couldn’t hail a cab, because not only were the streets blocked off, there were streams of people running uptown, and no sane cabby would take a fare going downtown, anyway. So, after feeding and walking my dog, which took about 15 min., I put on my rollerblades, and headed towards the burning towers.

After I got past Canal Street, with every passing block the air was getting smokier, and I started seeing paper and other debris swirling in the air, and also on the ground. By the time I got to Duane Street, there was so much debris on the ground that I couldn’t make any more progress on my rollerblades because paper kept getting stuck in the wheels, so I had to remove them and continue on foot. By Reade Street, the paper and dust on the ground was so thick that it looked like it had just snowed, with the papers piling up in drifts, sometimes knee deep. Just past Chambers Street, I saw my first burning vehicle, which was scary enough to walk by (I was afraid it might explode, so gave it a wide birth), but even more so because nobody was trying to put it out, it was just left to burn. Around Barclay Street, things got much worse, because that was when I started to see burning cop cars and fire trucks. The entire scene was surreal, and post-apocalyptic, because there was no “law and order” anymore—not when “the law” was literally on fire.

WTC-9-11-FBIAgentCar  Dr. Chynn’s 9/11 experience WTC 9 11 FBIAgentCarYou can’t really predict how you will react in such situations. It’s like when you watch a war film, and you hope you’d be brave, and not be a coward—but really, nobody can know how they will behave, until they are actually under fire. Somewhat to my surprise, I acted “normally” in this “abnormal” environment. I decided to stash my rollerblades (which were starting to get heavy) in a burned-out fire truck, figuring that it wasn’t going anywhere, I could easily find them afterwards, and it had the strange advantage of already being burnt to a crisp, so it couldn’t catch on fire again.

Because of all the fire and smoke and soot and papers and dust in the air, it was basically dark as twilight by now—I couldn’t see the sun or the sky. At this point, I thought I was lost, because I couldn’t find the Twin Towers. Visibility was only about a hundred feet, so I thought that was the reason I couldn’t see them. I bumbled into a female nurse, then a male EMT, and a few minutes later a construction worker, and we spent about 15 minutes stumbling around from block to block, looking for the twin towers, pulling up our shirts and trying to breathe through them in an unsuccessful attempt to not choke on the fumes, which smelled like burning oil, rubber, and a new smell for me that I later identified as burning metal. Although I was born in Manhattan and lived downtown for a number of years, I really didn’t know the exact address of the Twin Towers—you would normally just find them by looking up in the sky, which was now impossible. Finally, after walking in a big circle, we found ourselves back where we started, and the EMT said, “Hey, guys, I think that pile of debris might be the Twin Towers.”

WTC-9-11-RescueDogs  Dr. Chynn’s 9/11 experience WTC 9 11 RescueDogsWe told him he was an idiot: “First of all, those towers would never collapse, and second of all, if they had, the rubble would be hundreds of feet high and one city block long!” So, we walked around the entire block again—no Twin Towers. The second time, we had to admit he might be right, although that idea was so bizarre, it remained beyond our comprehension. Remember, all electricity had been cut off to lower Manhattan—so no radio or TV, plus our cell phones didn’t work. There was nobody to guide us, because all of the first responders and much of the “command and control” were killed in the collapse—but we didn’t know that at the time. A person watching TV in California would know vastly more than us, despite our standing right at Ground Zero a few minutes after the 2nd tower fell.

By this time, other volunteers (other civilians too brave, stupid, or stubborn to evacuate) were showing up, and we decided to start a triage center, since that seemed to be the first order of business. We decided to put it in the nearest surviving structure, which was an abandoned Burger King across the street from where WTC had stood (I don’t remember if it was Tower I or II, because by that time there were no towers, so that point was kind of moot). There were no workers inside, which added to the post-apocalyptic atmosphere. Someone found a broom and mop, and we started to clean up the floor and counters and tables. Another person found some candles, so we had some light, because again it was like night outside. As the only MD on the scene, the others automatically looked to me for guidance in terms of organization and set-up, so I tried to remember my training working in the ER for a month, which again was the last time WTC was attacked, which was even more surreal.

MedResWTC-Firefighter-EmilChynnMD  Dr. Chynn’s 9/11 experience MedResWTC Firefighter EmilChynnMDA firefighter wandered in, and I remember he looked really distraught—not just frazzled, but stunned, like his dog had just been killed by a car. I didn’t understand that at the time, but I know now that he had probably just lost his “band of brothers” and it was amazing that he could even function. He asked my how our progress was going, and put me on the walkie-talkie with his boss, who was called a “Battalion Commander.” He asked me what my progress was, and when he could send in the ambulances, which he said were “standing by.” I told him that the ambulances would not be able to get within a block of WTC, because the streets were knee-deep in paper. The construction worker said, “I’ll take care of that!” and then ran outside. I thought he had PTSD or something, because I didn’t know how he could “take care of it.” A few minutes later, I looked outside, and he was driving a small orange Bobcat with a plow extension through the papers, like he was shoveling snow. I directed him to shovel 2 lanes clear, one leading into the Burger King, and one leading out, so the ambulances wouldn’t get stuck turning around in the paper drifts. Once he did this, I called the Battalion Chief on the walkie talkie, who called “The Mayor’s Office” and then they sent in about 20 ambulances.

.

“>WTC-9-11-BurningCross  Dr. Chynn’s 9/11 experience WTC 9 11 BurningCrossWe were all really happy for a few minutes, and a little cheer went up from the crowd of volunteers, because we felt that we had really accomplished something important. It was only about an hour later, when we realized that almost all of our efforts had been in vain—besides a few emergency response workers, who came in with relatively minor injuries like smoke inhalation, minor trauma, and corneal abrasions, we never saw a single victim from the twin towers that entire afternoon. That’s when somebody said what we had all been thinking, but not saying, because we had to hope and pray it wasn’t true, to keep working, keep our sanity: “They’re not coming. . . they’re dead. They’re all dead.”I have other stories about my time as the first doctor to arrive at Ground Zero the morning of 9/11, some of them uplifting, others actually somewhat comical. For instance, we all stayed down there overnight trying to dig for survivors “on the Pile” (as it became to be known), and by that evening there was no running water, so we were all really dirty. I saw the construction guy the next morning, and thanked him for clearing a path for the ambulances, and asked him how he managed to procure a Bobcat, when even FDNY and the Mayor’s Office were helpless. He laughed and told me that on the way down he had passed a construction site, and saw it, so he just went back there and “hot-wired” it. I then asked him how he looked so clean, when everybody else looked like they worked in a coal mine, and he laughed again. “There’s a swimming pool in the Millennium Hilton across the street.” I asked him how he got in. He laughed again. Apparently, while the rest of us were trying to get a few minutes of sleep on the sidewalk or in the back of a burnt out car, he had been luxuriating in a “superior” room with a King bed and sheets with Egyptian cotton! After agreeing that he wasn’t really “breaking in” or “stealing” when the entire staff had abandoned the hotel, he did need a place to sleep and bathe, and Hilton would probably gladly offer their services to rescue workers at Ground Zero, he said “tonight, why don’t you stop by, and you can also take a bath in the biggest tub in the US, and sleep like a King?” It’s one of the great regrets of my life that I never took him up on that offer. It seems like a silly thing, but I would have liked to have that nice memory to balance out all the horrors I witnessed that week, and gotten his name, because in my mind we might have become friends, or at least stayed in touch, and lifted a glass together every year on 9/11.

The pictures that have been used to illustrate this story were taken by me between 9/11 and 9/19, and some of them were previously displayed in the exhibit Here is New York, which later toured around Europe briefly the following year.

All other centers in Manhattan specialize in LASIK, or another version of LASIK called IntraLase or i-LASIK, in which the flap is cut with a laser. IntraLase was developed to decrease the chance of complication while cutting the corneal flap. And it works–the risk in IntraLase is less than the risk in LASIK. However, you can never eliminate the risk of cutting a flap unless you actually stop cutting flaps–which Dr. Chynn stopped doing in 2005, when he introduced SafeSight™ to NYC!

In SafeSight™, instead of cutting your cornea in half to gain access, and lasering the back of your cornea, Dr. Chynn merely treats the front surface of your cornea–eliminating the need for the risky cutting step. Fully 90% of all LASIK complications involve the flap, so by not making a flap, we’re eliminating 90% of all possible complications (including the most serious ones). So again, we can treat higher Rx, we can treat it safer and you will never have a flap complication.

Dr. Emil Chynn has publish numerous articles about Advanced surface ablation technique being safer than LASIK for enhancement surgery as well as primary surgery, here is one such article.

Wilson and Santhiago report on “flaporhexis” which they describe as a new technique to lift the LASIK flap during enhancement surgery.1  Their stated advantage of using this technique is that it “produces a smooth epithelial dissection and deceases the possibility that epithelium is retained beneath the flap.”Last year, Guell, et. al. reported their new technique for performing LASIK enhancements using the femtosecond laser to create a vertical side-cut incision.2 Again, their stated advantage of performing an additional incision—using an additional laser—was to decrease the chance of epithelial ingrowth after manual dissection of a primary flap, the incidence of which has been reported in the literature to range from 2% to 43%.3-5

Wilson does not mention the alternative of photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) over a previous LASIK flap.  Guell does suggest that the primary indications for PRK over LASIK is “in cases of thin residual stromal thickness and flap irregularities (i.e., microfolds).”

It is thus widely agreed that the most common and problematic complication encountered when enhancing prior LASIK surgery by the “lift and re-laser” technique is epithelial ingrowth.  However, there is no way to eliminate this complication if manually dissecting the existing LASIK flap, even if employing this “rhexis” technique.  Similarly, although the femtosecond vertical side-cut may produce a tighter fitting “manhole” cover, an additional vertical track is still being created, through which epithelial cells can migrate.  Indeed, Guell reports the novel complication of “loss of a sliver of tissue between the old angular side cut and the new vertical side cut.”  Presumably, the incidence of epithelial ingrowth in such cases would be increased.

For the past five years, I have enhanced prior LASIK surgeries exclusively by performing LASEK (alcohol-assisted epithelial removal + surface ablation).  Besides decreasing the risk of epithelial ingrowth to zero, this technique has another, more important advantage—not decreasing residual stromal bed (RSB) and thus not increasing the risk of iatrogenic ectasia.

In complicated enhancements patients often report subjective visual complaints that may be worse than their Snellen acuity, due to higher order aberrations (HOA).  When we changed our enhancement technique from “lift and relaser” to “LASEK over LASIK” our patients had greater improvement in their subjective visual complaints.  We hypothesize this is because the wavefront map that we obtain and ablate is exactly what is required, and not distorted by re-lifting the flap.

It is important to stress that the use of mitomycin-c (MMC) is essential to prevent scarring when performing Advanced Surface Ablation (ASA) enhancements of prior LASIKs.  We look forward to controlled studies to determine which enhancement technique has the best risk-reward ratio (especially with regard to epithelial ingrowth & ectasia), so should eventually predominate.

Park Avenue SafeSight not only guarantees you the most advanced laser technique (LASEK instead of LASIK) because it’s ten times safer, but we also offer financing options that will allow you to pay as much per day as you’re paying for your glasses and contacts. On average, people will spend about $2-$3 PER DAY to cover their annual cost of glasses, contacts, and everything that goes along with them. That’s almost $10,000 every decade!

Call us to book your free consultation. When you come in for your visit, you will meet with a doctor and then with our patient coordinator who will discuss options as low as 0% for the duration of the loan.
Stop renting your vision. Stop paying way more than you should. Say goodbye to depending on your contacts drying out your eyes and your glasses getting scratched up or worn down. Start owning your vision today by calling us at LASIK financing options call skype logo212-741-8628

You’re a bad candidate for LASIK. This is the worst sentence someone can hear when they desperately want to get rid of their glasses and contacts. You’ve spent years hating how contacts dry out your eyes and not seeing perfectly with your glasses. You lose your frames, and you spend hundreds of dollars each time on replacements. All you’re doing is spending money on glasses and contacts – and you hate it!

You’re a bad candidate for LASIK. This is the worst sentence someone can hear when they desperately want to get rid of their glasses and contacts. You’ve spent years hating how contacts dry out your eyes and not seeing perfectly with your glasses. You lose your frames, and you spend hundreds of dollars each time on replacements. All you’re doing is spending money on glasses and contacts – and you hate it!

Then you go for a consultation with a reputable doctor and they tell you that you can’t have LASIK because you have thin corneas, or your prescription is too high. Maybe your eyes are already too dry for LASIK because the cutting technique has been known to lead to side effects that make dry eyes even worse. Great. Now what?

Well don’t worry. There is a solution. And you can still get rid of those glasses and contacts that are ruining your life!

Park Avenue SafeSight™ is the only center that exclusively performs non cutting LASEK. Aside from being ten times safer than the older, less advanced LASIK and Intralase techniques, many of our patients have found that even if they can’t have LASIK they can still have LASEK.

Put simply, because we utilize only the safest techniques available we can treat even the highest prescriptions safely. Dr. Emil Chynn, chief surgeon of Park Avenue SafeSight™ has treated prescriptions as high as -22…and you thought your eyes needed help.

Park Avenue SafeSight™ offers one of the largest refractive fellowships in the country. Many of Dr. Chynn’s fellows have literally flown from half way around the world to learn under him because they known non cutting LASEK is the future of safety and they want the best for their future patients when they open up practices of their own.
