Dr. Carol J. Hoffman



LASIK Eye Surgery in Wilmington, DE

Carol J. Hoffman, MD, is a board-certified ophthalmologist who has dedicated her surgical career to helping patients achieve outstanding vision through LASIK eye surgery. Dr. Hoffman performs LASIK at Kremer Eye Centers in Delaware and New Jersey, where she also serves as the Medical Director.

Kremer Eye Center is a premier vision correction practice and a pioneer in laser eye surgery. The center's eye surgeons were the first to perform LASIK in North America, and they were also the first to perform radial keratotomy (a predecessor of LASIK) in Delaware in 1980. They continue their long tradition of excellence by remaining abreast of the latest technological developments and regularly participating in FDA clinical trials.

Dr. Hoffman and the other surgeons of Kramer Eye Center strive to help each patient achieve his or her best possible vision. Their goal is to reduce their patients' dependence on corrective lenses and enhance their visual freedom. This philosophy, combined with Kramer Eye Center's superb LASIK technologies, attracts many patients from Delaware, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and throughout the United States.

Custom All-Laser LASIK at Kremer Eye Center


WDEL DJ "Big Don" Volts talks up Kremer.

Kremer Eye Center's surgeons specialize in an advanced form of LASIK eye surgery known as custom all-laser LASIK. After meticulously examining the patient to ensure his or her LASIK candidacy, the center's surgeons perform a wavefront scan of the cornea. This scan creates a customized 3-D map of the eye showing the corneal imperfections that will be corrected with an excimer laser. Essentially, the map serves as a guide for the excimer laser, guiding it during treatment to match each patient's unique corneal ablation profile.

Before using the excimer laser to reshape the cornea, Kremer Eye Center's surgeons create a small flap in the cornea. They use a special laser (the IntraLase femtosecond laser) to complete this task. As a result, the entire LASIK treatment is performed with lasers, and no mechanical bladed instruments are used. This approach leads to faster recoveries and excellent visual results.

Comprehensive Vision Care

In addition to LASIK, the surgeons of Kremer Eye Center offer PRK and LASEK eye surgery. They are also experts at diagnosing and correcting presbyopia — a condition that causes loss of reading vision after the age of 40. Depending on the needs and preferences of each patient, they may perform conductive keratoplasty (CK) or clear lens extraction surgery. At Kremer Eye Center, patients can also undergo cataract surgery with advanced intraocular lens implants (IOLs), such as Crystalens, ReSTOR and ReZoom. Verisyse lenses are also available for patients who cannot undergo LASIK due to a high degree of myopia. In addition, Kramer Eye Center offers comprehensive glaucoma therapy and many cosmetic eye procedures, such as Botox.
