Who is Dr Samer Khosrof?
AN OPHTHALMOLOGIST, LOVER OF LASIK EYE SURGERY, WORLD POVERTY WARRIOR, AND 20+ YEARS EYE HEALTH EXPERT DEDICATED TO HELPING YOU GET THE BEST NATURAL VISION POSSIBLE
My name is Samer Khosrof, and I’m a laser eye surgeon in New York City. I own and operate a LASIK center in Brooklyn at 333 86th St, where I see and treat patients with LASIK and other refractive surgery procedures.
I also own and operate a broader eye and retinal practice called New York Eye & Retina, in Brooklyn.
Learn a little more about the team that works at I Love LASIK.
By examining the patient’s complete eye and performing tests that exceed the standard of care, my team and I are equipped and able to diagnose and address other eye problems that may impact your laser eye surgery.
I can’t overstate how important that is. When I treat the front of your eye with LASIK, I have to know as much about your eye as possible. It takes a little bit longer than what happens elsewhere, but it’s the responsible thing to do.
When you’re an I Love LASIK patient, you’re a Samer Khosrof patient first. That means I see you before the surgery, I perform your surgery, and I see you for your aftercare. In the end, you’re my patient and I take that responsibility seriously.
MY EDUCATION, SPECIAL INTERESTS AND RESEARCH ACTIVITIES
I completed my residency in Ophthalmology at SUNY Downstate University.
I then finished additional training including a Vitreoretinal Surgery fellowship at Tulane University Medical Center and a Retina fellowship at Massachusetts Eye & Ear Infirmary / Harvard Medical School.
I’m proud of to say I have an excellent record in treating complex eye conditions. My experience has earned me nationwide and global respect and a solid reputation. As in most professions, one’s reputation is critical.
I am a regular contributor to several peer-reviewed medical journals, and my research work in anti-angiogenesis has become the basis of the latest treatments for retinopathy and macular degeneration.
Besides my private practice, I serve as an attending surgeon at SUNY Downstate University Medical Center, Lutheran Medical Center, Methodist Hospital and the New York University Medical Center.
I have over 25 years of experience in performing LASIK, refractive, cataract, cornea, glaucoma, vitreoretinal, and oculoplastic surgeries. I have helped thousands of people get exceptional eye care both nationally and internationally.
I’ve been very fortunate in my life. My experience has enabled me to stay on top of the latest treatments and surgical procedures becoming available to cure complex eye conditions. I believe in the efficacy of medical technology, and I have expertise in deploying the latest diagnostic and laser equipment to treat my patients with 100 percent confidence.
I am an honorable member of multiple academic and professional organizations related to eye care and treatment.
These include the:
New York State Ophthalmological Society
The Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology (ARVO)
The American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO)
The American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery (ASCRS)
The American Society of Retina Specialists (ASRS)

COMMON QUESTIONS ABOUT THIS LIFE CHANGING TREATMENT
LASIK is one of the most effective surgical operations on the planet, and I couldn’t be happier to be involved in it. It’s not only painless, but it also offers rapid and long-lasting results.
The best part of being a LASIK eye surgeon is the difference I can make in people’s lives. I love helping people find new confidence in everything from how they interact with their colleagues at work to how they engage in active sports and leisure activities.
Now, I’m in a position to not only offer LASIK to people in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, New Jersey and beyond, I can also do it while further serving the greater good.
With that in mind, we’ve chosen five causes that we’ll contribute to whenever anyone has LASIK with us. Because every patient is different, we give them the choice of who they can help, so that they know that their decision to have LASIK doesn’t only serve themselves, but also does a small part to help our world, too.
LASIK is a powerful procedure, but that doesn’t mean it’s right for everyone. Even more than we love LASIK, we love to help people see as well as they can. And as long as it’s safe to do so, we’ll offer our patients other eye treatments that might be more suitable to their needs.
