Choosing the right surgeon for your laser vision correction procedure can be a difficult task. How do you find the right ophthalmologist for you?
The reality is not all board-certified eye surgeons are of the same quality and experience. Wouldn’t it be valuable to have an inside source direct you to the
best surgeon you will entrust your eyes to?
Training and experience are certainly fundamental criteria. You want a surgeon with a solid background who has done a good number of cases over
many years with top-notch results. Patients should beware of surgeons who delegate the critical pre-operative examination and discussion to others. In our
practice, we are proud that Dr. Salz performs the vital pre-operative measurements himself and answers your questions at the time of consultation. Dr. Salz
trained at the prestigious Wills Eye Hospital in Philadelphia, consistently rated among the top 3 eye specialty hospitals in the United States as ranked by U.S.
News and World Report. He was the first ophthalmologist to perform Laser Vision Correction in our area when approved by the FDA in late 1995 and has
been performing LASIK since 1998.
Technology is key in the 21st century. Dr. Salz was the first surgeon in central New Jersey to be certified in performing All-Laser Bladeless Intralase
LASIK in early 2005. He utilizes the most current generation VISX CustomVue technology which has been shown to reduce the chance of night vision
disturbances following laser vision correction.

skill among the many laser surgeons in New Jersey? Would it be someone
who worked intimately in the laser suite as the chief technician and head
surgical assistant? Who would that person select to perform laser vision
correction for a loved one? Recently, Jon Cesaro asked Dr. Salz to perform
CustomVue all-laser bladeless IntraLase LASIK for his wife, Lucia. Jon is
the chief technician for New Jersey Eye Laser Center, which runs a series
of laser vision facilities throu
