Laser eye surgery in Philadelphia and New Jersey

What is laser eye surgery

Laser eye surgery is an umbrella term for procedures that use laser technology to correct refractive errors like myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), and astigmatism.

Both Dr. Shah and Dr. Wasserman have extensive experience in laser eye surgery.

Dr. Shah is one of the most experienced LASIK & PRK surgeons in New Jersey and the Greater Philadelphia area and has performed over 55,000 LASIK and PRK treatments over the past 20 years. Dr. Wasserman is an accomplished LASIK surgeon, having performed over 25,000 surgeries.

Types of laser eye surgery

We offer several types of laser eye surgery.
Coming in for your free, no-obligation consultation is the first step towards determining which procedure is right for you. Our team of experts will assess your vision and needs and provide the best option for you.


  • LASIK Eye Surgery: LASIK is popular and widely performed. It can treat some of the most common vision problems and patients typically experience improved vision right after surgery, delivering a very high satisfaction rate.
  • SMILE: SMILE supports the latest developments in laser vision correction for myopia, with or without astigmatism. This alternative to LASIK also has a short recovery time and is minimally invasive and a good option for those with dry eyes. LASIK Experts and Dr. Shah are the only providers for SMILE in the Philadelphia area.
  • PRK: For those who are not candidates for LASIK, PRK might be an option. It’s an ideal procedure for people with thinner-than-average corneas, where creating a corneal flap (as is necessary in LASIK) would not be ideal. The visual outcome is the same, whether for LASIK or PRK, with the recovery time being the main difference; recovery for PRK might take several days versus the one to two for LASIK.
