Tired of putting on your contact lenses or glasses every morning? You may be a candidate for LASIK! LASIK is a type of refractive surgery, which uses an excimer laser (ultraviolet laser) to reshape the curvature of the cornea to correct most common vision disorders, such as myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), and astigmatism.

A cataract is the clouding of the lens of the eye. This prevents the normal passage of light to the retina, creating either a blurry image or bothersome glare.

The cornea is the front surface of the eye that allows light to enter. Its clear, thin, spherical shape helps focus the light on the retina and transmit a sharp image to your brain. The cornea also helps to shield the rest of the eye from dust, germs and other harmful matters. Any disease that affects the cornea’s shape, thickness, or transparent nature will decrease your vision.

What Our Patients Say…

We could only say good things about the care we get at dr. Friend’s office. The staff and the doctor really take good care of us. Mom and I will always be a patient of Dr. Friend…he is the best. Thanks for all your good work. We really appreciate your Kindnesses…we will always have goodies for you when we come. Please express to Dr. Friend that I am so glad that he caught the problem with mom and that there is a Solution…i do hope that the doctor he sent her to is just as good as he is.

Five years ago Dr. Friend performed lens replacement surgery on both of my eyes. I had been seeing him for regular eye exams prior to that and every year since. Dr. Friend always takes the time to answer any questions I have. I am never sorry for having the lens replacement surgery. I have not needed glasses since. It’s one of the best things I’ve ever done for myself.

Went to an eye doctor for a cornea issue that was beyond her scope. She recommended Dr. Friend. He is incredibly thorough and polite. Smart, honest, direct and competent. His assistants are well trained and they work together very well. After my long-time terrible eye doctor in Midland Park, I now am in excellent hands. Very pleased and would highly recommend!
