Founded in the 1970s by Dr. Joseph Dello Russo, New Jersey Eye Center (NJEC) became the first eye care center in New Jersey that treats all eye conditions by offering specialty doctors, an optical shop, and the first ASC in the Northeast and by having cataract surgery as an in-office procedure. Our ambulatory surgical center was the first of its kind and led the way to the spread of outpatient surgery options in other specialties as well.
In 1990, the first Dello Russo LaserVision center was opened within the same site in Bergenfield, New Jersey, specializing in laser vision correction. Since 2000, three additional locations have been opened to serve patients in and around the Brooklyn, Manhattan, and Long Island areas.
Laser Vision Correction Center
At our New Jersey office, all laser vision correction surgeries are performed in an ultra-modern, 38,000 sq. ft. surgical center by Drs. Joseph and Jeff Dello Russo. Our professional team is headed up by surgeon and founder, Joseph Dello Russo, M.D., and his son, eye surgeon Jeff Dello Russo, M.D., who carries on his father’s tradition of excellence in patient care and visual outcomes.
The multi-disciplinary practice (NJEC) is rounded out by a cataract surgeon, a glaucoma specialist, a medical retina specialist, staff optometrists, operating room RNs, and board-certified anesthesiologists to offer our patients the most complete care possible.
Dello Russo LaserVision and The New Jersey Eye Center have been national leaders in their fields, helping to pioneer most of the leading technologies in use today. Our laser correction center was centrally involved in the FDA trials of the excimer laser during the 1990s that eventually led to the approval of this technology. During that clinical trial period (1991-1996), the office of Joseph Dello Russo, M.D. was the most prominent of the 10 participating centers, performing more treatments than any of the other study contributors. Additionally, in 1997 we gained FDA approval to conduct unique clinical trials to treat higher degrees of nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism with laser vision correction than had yet been approved by the FDA.
Not only have the Dello Russo doctors played an integral role in helping to develop, test, and implement these lasers nationwide, but the LASIK practice was also involved with the adoption of the Intralase laser technology.
Our office was the first in the United States to use this new laser, offering bladeless LASIK in combination with Dr. Joseph Dello Russo’s pioneering Down-Up LASIK™ technique. Additionally, we were the first practice in the New York area to use Custom Cornea Wavefront technology for primary and secondary treatment, and we have been pleased to offer this important advance in vision correction to our patients.
We participate in Medicare as well as most major insurance programs and vision plans. To find out further details or to set up a consultation, please contact a LASIK surgeon today.
