Located on the ground floor of the New Jersey Eye Center, Dr. Joseph Dello Russo and his team fit patients with glasses and frames from brands such as D&G, Coach, Gucci, Prada and Versace. They also offer a full line of contact lenses.
Outside of Main Eyeglass Center, since the 1970s Dr. Russo has made a name for himself as a premier cataract surgeon, becoming a go-to professional for all things laser, even being christened the "Godfather of LASIK" by Howard Stern. Today, at Dello Russo Laser Vision, he and his son Jeffrey have performed more than 150,000 procedures to date, and have hosted ophthalmologists from around the country for LASIK trainings. Despite their renown—the Dello Russos are the preferred practitioners of the Brooklyn Nets—they still personally perform each of their pre-procedure exams, laser surgeries, and personal appearances.
Fifty years ago, Pearle Vision was a tiny eyecare practice in Savannah, Georgia, run by Dr. Stanley Pearle. Since then, it's expanded to myriad practices across the country—including this one in Toms River. Helmed by Drs. Randy Nissinoff and Michael Iuliano, the practice outfits eyes with face-flattering designer frames and sunglasses, all with prescription lenses. Each pair comes with 30 days of no-questions returns and a lifetime of free fit adjustments. For extra convenience, the practice also stays open until 8 p.m. on weekdays, so visitors can pop in after work.
Patients at Focus Eye Health & Vision Care Optometrists entrust their eyesight not only to the clinic's selection of stylish frames from more than 35 different designers, but to the highly skilled optometrists that care for their rods and cones. During his tenure as a lieutenant and optometrist in the US Navy, Dr. Matt Esperon employed bladeless vision-correction procedures to perfect the sight of aviators, building a successful career with humankind's two coolest inventions⎯lasers and fighter jets. Meanwhile, founder Dr. Paul Berman applies his decades of professional experience to treat a range of ocular-health problems, while still finding time to give back to the community through his involvement with programs such as the Special Olympics. Vases of flowers add a touch of homey charm to the office, and high-tech LASIK devices and sophisticated diagnostic equipment protect eyeballs with cutting-edge care.
With more than 25 years of experience, board-certified Liviu B. Saimovici, MD, of Saimovici Lasik uses modern treatment systems to bestow fuzzy viewers with clear vision. LASIK eye surgery, a laser surgery procedure, helps patients permanently reduce their reliance on glasses and contacts, improving such ailments as nearsightedness, astigmatism, and the inability to differentiate between a TV remote and the family cat. Under the control of Dr. Saimovici, a LASIK laser changes the shape of a patient's cornea—the dome-shaped tissue in the front of the eye—to bend lights rays more precisely on the retina. Today's offer permits customers to receive treatment in one or both eyes, allowing lens-toting patrons to correct dual eye problems or farsighted Cyclopes to save money on mail-order monocles.
Helmed by Dr. Michael Ahdoot, a team of countenance curators smooths and tightens faces with Botox and Juvéderm injections. Noninvasive Botox injections battle a bevy of facial blemishes, including hyperhidrosis, crow’s feet, and chronic winking emoticons. Most patients enjoy their results for up to six months.
Board-certified ophthalmic surgeon Alexander Wu can reduce the signs of aging with the nonsurgical Botox treatment. During the procedure, face skin is safely injected with a purified protein to help straighten out creased brows, erase forehead lines, or fill in the grooves left by nesting crows. Problematic patches generally stay smooth for three to four months. If clients are not satisfied with the de-wrinkling after a week, Dr. Wu can perform a free touch-up to ensure visages appear as youthful as a freshly minted baby.
