The awards and recognition keep coming for the Princeton Eye Group, New Jersey’s premier eye care group, serving all of central New Jersey and the entire New York Metropolitan area. The group features seven of the top New Jersey eye doctors. All are board-certified physicians and surgeons who have successfully treated thousands of patients. The doctors of the Princeton Eye Group are recognized as leaders in eye care in New Jersey who have received their training at the nation’s top medical schools and facilities. They continue to pioneer new procedures and mentor other doctors through research and training.
With emphasis on client convenience, the Princeton Eye Group offers three fully staffed locations in Princeton, Monroe, and Somerset. In addition, they have created unique ambulatory treatment centers for specialty care: the Wills Laser Vision at Princeton; the Surgery Center of Central NJ, an ambulatory surgery unit for cataract, glaucoma and corneal transplant surgery; and the Eye Surgery of Princeton providing Medicare-certified ambulatory center for laser eye surgery as well as oculoplastic surgery.
The exceptional success of the LASIK technique has been verified time and again. The Wills Laser Vision at Princeton is widely credited for having pioneered the latest innovations and has always been first to upgrade technology every step of the way. At this point, LASIK is now established as a mainstream procedure. A recent survey of physicians, the Journal of Cataract and Refractive Surgery, reports how beneficial LASIK can be.
In the right person, it is clear now that the safety of LASIK supersedes the safety of contact lens use. Starting with the better diagnostics beforehand that can rule out improper corneas, the Pentacam analysis, available at Wills Laser Vision at Princeton, is considered the world standard for pre-op analysis. For surgery, the Wills Laser Vision at Princeton is recognized for employing the “best in its class” lasers. There are two lasers involved, and Wills Laser Vision at Princeton is the only center in central New Jersey that has either.
Beyond state-of-the-art training and technology, the physicians at Princeton Eye Group believe in using their talents for the greater good. Dr. Michael Wong, a pioneer in minimally invasive cataract surgery, is the distinguished recipient of the New Jersey Inventors Hall of Fame’s Innovator’s Award. Dr. Wong is the first clinical physician to be so honored. His surgical procedures to correct cataracts reduce the rate of post-operative infection and promote faster healing. The technique he developed, known as the “Wong Way,” is now used world-wide. He has also been recognized with the Distinguished Physicians Humanitarian Award by the University Medical Center of Princeton at Plainsboro for charitable work performed locally, and overseas in Africa and South America.
Additionally, Dr. John Epstein has been teaching ophthalmology residents at Wills Eye Hospital for the past 10 years. Spending time in the Wills Cataract and Primary Eye Care Clinic and the operating room teaching cataract surgery is his way of giving back to his alma mater. Beyond these notable contributions, the entire staff of the Princeton Eye Group is dedicated to the advancement of leading edge care and innovation.
The Princeton Eye Group provides comprehensive care ranging from routine exams to sophisticated, state-of-the-art surgery and treatments. Appointments can be made at any of their three locations by calling the main number or by calling each office directly.
