With fully-staffed locations in Princeton, Monroe, and Somerset, Princeton Eye Group has long been known as one of New Jersey’s premier eye care practices. Each office integrates ophthalmologists, optometrists, and opticians so that comprehensive care can be delivered at each location.
Services at Princeton Eye Group include routine eye exams; contact lenses; state of-the-art cataract surgery; and diagnosis and treatment for most eye diseases, including corneal diseases, glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and retinal detachment and tears; as well as eyelid and orbital plastic surgery; laser vision correction (LASIK); intense pulsed light therapy; and Botox and cosmetic surgery.
The eye care professionals at Princeton Eye Group are among the most experienced in the Central New Jersey area, with all doctors trained at Wills Eye Hospital in Philadelphia, as well as other institutions.
Along with its three offices, Princeton Eye Group offers state-of-the-art ambulatory treatment centers for specialty care including Wills Laser Vision at Princeton, designated a Center of Excellence for LASIK by Wills Eye Hospital; the Surgery Center of Central NJ, an ambulatory surgery center for cataract, glaucoma, and corneal transplant surgery managed by Wills Eye Hospital; Eye Surgery Princeton, a Medicare-certified ambulatory surgery center for laser eye surgery and oculoplastic surgery; a retinal diagnostic and laser center; and a glaucoma laser and diagnostics center.
Princeton Eye Group prides itself on being on the cutting edge of the most recent technology. Dr Suzanne Jadico, who specializes in comprehensive ophthalmology, cataract surgery, and LASIK, said she is very excited about a new intraocular lens implant approved just this year by the FDA.
“New technology brings new options,” said Dr. Jadico. “With the new multifocal toric lens, we can now correct for astigmatism in patients during cataract surgery. There were other versions of the lens in the past, but now patients with astigmatism can truly be free of glasses — many 100 percent of the time. It’s great for those having trouble with their eyesight who couldn’t have it corrected before.”
Dr. Jadico said that the new lens provides a good perception of things that are both near and far. “It’s a great new technology and good option for astigmatism correction.”
Dr. Jadico has performed thousands of cataract and LASIK surgeries, and said she even performed LASIK on her own mother.
The Wills Laser Vision LASIK facility in Princeton combines the world-class medical knowledge and technology of Wills Eye Hospital with the skill and experience of the Princeton Eye Group’s surgeons.
The laser used at the facility is the latest Wavelight Allegretto Eye-Q 400 system, which allows Dr. Jadico and her surgical colleagues to view and measure the intricate details of a patient’s entire visual system. This evolution provides treatment for more patients, some of whom were previously not candidates for LASIK, by providing a detailed map of the refractive errors that are unique to each person’s vision. The errors are then corrected using a precision-guided beam of light.
Wavelight FS200 blade-free LASIK is considered to be the new standard of quality and safety in LASIK, and the only technology to provide patients with a 100 percent blade-free experience.
“There have been big advances in LASIK surgery with blade-free technology,” said Dr. Jadico. “It is very safe. We also have better screening now to determine early if someone might not be a good candidate for LASIK.”
Dr. Jadico emphasized that the professionals at Princeton Eye Group “are a really great group. We cover almost all specialties and all of our doctors have advanced training in their specific areas.”
Each of Princeton Eye Group’s three offices is also equipped with an Optical Shoppe, offering one of the widest selections of designer frames and contact lenses in the area.
The Princeton office of Princeton Eye Group is located in the Princeton Healthcare Center at 419 North Harrison Street, Suite 104, and can be reached at 609.921.9437.
