SJEYE's Dr. James Nachbar was one of the first surgeons in the Philadelphia / South Jersey region to perform LASIK surgery. His first case was done in 1997.
Since 2000, his LASIK surgeries are performed inside the Moorestown office, in the attached Surgical Center at South Jersey Eye Physicians.
Innovation at its best
Dr. Nachbar was one of the first surgeons in the USA to purchase the Bausch & Lomb 217 "Flying Spot" laser. His operating room theater is temperature and humidity controlled room at all times (24 x 7 x 365). In 2003, his laser was one of the first in the USA to be updated with "wavefront guided" capability, allowing truly customized LASIK for his patients. Additional technological enhancements since then have made the laser faster (twice as fast), more accurate (with high speed 3-D infrared tracking ) and safer (with unique iris identification).
Thanks to the incredible power of the laser, many people can have their vision corrected in just a few seconds. Each ultra-fast laser pulse is precisely placed on the cornea to sculpt a new shape for the eye with the utmost accuracy. Each pulse removes a microscopic amount (1/4 micron - approximately 0.0000098 inches) of tissue.
As you can see, LASIK is an extremely safe & effective method to correct issues of farsightedness, astigmatism and nearsightedness. LASIK surgery has eliminated dependence on eyeglasses and contacts for hundreds of thousands of people across the globe.
