Happy New Year
I'd like to wish everyone a happy and healthy 2008 and welcome you to our new website and blog. I will use this blog to provide timely updates on eye care with an emphasis on new technologies and in particular refractive surgery. 2007 was a great year for Philadelphia Eye Associates, our employees and our patients. We brought new technologies to the offices such as OCT (Ocular Coherence Tomography) for the evaluation of the retina and optic nerve, the IOL Master for measuring the axial length of the eye, new visual field machines to help in the management of glaucoma, and some major changes in refractive surgery. Last year TLC laser center of Mt Laurel, where I perform all my LASIK surgery, merged with Kremer Laser of Cherry Hill and combined their operations at the Cherry Hill location. After a lot of work, the end result is nothing short of amazing. The facility is great, and as a result of the merger we were able to bring in two of the newest technologies in refractive surgery: Intralase and Pentacam. In addition the center has two full time Optometric refractive specialists, three surgical technicians, two ophthalmic technicians and a great front office staff. NO laser center provides better technology or personnel and for you the patient, no one provides a better laser vision experience. As you can tell I'm quite pleased with the result.If you have any questions about Philadelphia Eye Associates or any of the vision care services we offer, don't hesitate to email me through the website.
