Profiles in Healthcare: Sarah Kuchar, MD
Princeton Eye Group
Where are you located?
We offer three locations that are fully staffed and served by all of our sup-specialists: Princeton, Somerset and Monroe. We operate at the Wills Eye Surgery Center of Central NJ in North Brunswick.
What kinds of conditions do you treat?
I am a comprehensive ophthalmologist as well as a fellowship-trained glaucoma specialist. I manage a wide variety of eye conditions, including diseases of the cornea, eyelids and orbit, lens, optic nerve and retina with a special focus on cataracts and glaucoma.
What kinds of procedures do you perform?
As a comprehensive ophthalmologist I perform cataract surgery and minor lid procedures. As a glaucoma specialist I perform glaucoma lasers and filtering surgeries with the goal of lowering the intraocular pressure to reduce more damage to the optic nerve.
How would you describe your practice’s philosophy?
At the Princeton Eye Group we pride ourselves on delivering the highest quality of care. We accomplish this goal by attracting physicians that have been trained at some of the top institutions in the country and are leaders in their respective fields. The benefit of a group practice is the ability to collaborate and learn from each other while being able to provide patients with access to top physicians in a wide variety of ophthalmic sub-specialites. We all share the unifying goal of providing exceptional care to our patients.
How should patients prepare for their first visit?
In preparation for the first visit, particularly if it is an initial consultation for glaucoma, it is very helpful to come with previous records. We can still accomplish a lot on the first visit without them and will contact your previous doctor’s office to obtain a copy, but having them to review at the first visit makes for a more effective and efficient appointment.
How can patients best contact you?
The best way to contact me is by calling the office to schedule an appointment.
I see patients in all three offices:
