Laser Eye Surgery in Southern New Jersey

Carol J. Hoffman, MD, and Anthony C. Zacchei, MD, are board-certified ophthalmologists specializing in various forms of laser eye surgery. Drs. Hoffman and Zacchei have completed extensive academic and hands-on training, graduating from medical school with Alpha Omega Alpha honors. They combine their advanced knowledge with leading-edge LASIK technologies and impeccable patient care to consistently deliver excellent vision correction results.

Drs. Hoffman and Zacchei, along with the other eye surgeons of Kremer Eye Center, have many years' experience performing LASIK surgery. Committed to remaining abreast of the latest advances in the field of laser eye surgery, they regularly participate in FDA clinical trials and research projects. Their dedication reflects the forward-looking philosophy of Kremer Eye Center — a leading eye care practice whose surgeons were the first in North America to perform LASIK and the first in Delaware to perform radial keratotomy (a forerunner of LASIK).

In order to maximize their patients' visual freedom, Drs. Hoffman and Zacchei perform customized LASIK treatments focused on achieving sharp vision without glasses. This approach, combined with their surgical expertise, draws numerous patients from New Jersey, Delaware, Pennsylvania, and throughout the United States.

Customized All-Laser LASIK Treatments at Kremer Eye Center

Drs. Hoffman and Zacchei offer several forms of LASIK surgery, including the advanced all-laser LASIK. This treatment does not involve the use of any mechanical blades, instead relying on a sophisticated laser (IntraLase) to create the corneal flap. Drs. Hoffman and Zacchei prefer IntraLase because it produces a more uniform, even corneal flap. This in turn reduces the risk of flap-related complications and leads to better vision after LASIK.

In addition to the IntraLase laser, the state-off-the-art, temperature-controlled facilities of Kremer Eye Center feature an excimer laser platform with wavefront technology. The excimer laser is used to reshape patients' corneas during LASIK. Correcting the shape of the cornea makes it possible for the eye to properly refract light rays, which is vital to ensuring optimum vision.

The surgeons of Kremer Eye Center use the wavefront technology to create a unique three-dimensional map of each patient's corneas. This map reveals even the smallest imperfections in corneal shape. The surgeons use the wavefront map to calibrate the excimer laser so that it delivers a customized treatment designed to address each patient's unique vision correction needs.

Comprehensive Eye Care in South New Jersey

As a premier vision correction and eye care practice, Kremer Eye Center offers a comprehensive array of treatments. In addition to LASIK, the center's surgeons also perform LASEK and PRK. For patients who cannot undergo any type of laser eye surgery, they offer the Verisyse lens implant procedure. Kremer Eye Center's eye surgeons are also highly experienced at performing conductive keratoplasty for the treatment of presbyopia — a condition that causes blurry near vision in most people over the age of 40. In addition, they specialize in glaucoma therapy, clear lens extraction treatment and cataract surgery with sophisticated lens implants, such as ReZoom, ReSTOR and Crystalens.

Kremer Eye Center also offers a variety of cosmetic treatments for the eyes and face, including Botox injections.
