  • Council Update

    On the evening of December 2, less than 24 hours after taking my oath of office as a county councilman, I was in a room full of 350 concerned constituents at the Earleigh Heights fire station on Ritchie Highway.

    Moreover, these proposed 84 units are designated...

  • Laser Eye Surgery: More Than Just LASIK

    There are more lasers used in the field of ophthalmology than in any other medical specialty. As an ophthalmologist, I am often asked by patients, “Will my surgery be done with a laser or with conventional surgery?”
    The eye is uniquely suited for treatment with a laser because we can deliver the laser light into the eye through the clear cornea and lens to treat the inside of the eye. By focusing the laser on the surface or inside the eye, we can treat various conditions.

    Lasers are used to deliver...
