Our professional team is headed up by surgeon and founder, Joseph Dello Russo, M.D., and his son, surgeon Jeff Dello Russo, M.D., who carries on his father’s tradition of excellence in patient care and visual outcomes. The multi-disciplinary practice is rounded out by a cataract surgeon, a glaucoma specialist, a medical retina specialist, staff optometrists, operating room RNs, and board certified anesthesiologists to offer our patients the most complete care possible.
Dello Russo Laser Vision has been a national leader in the field, helping to pioneer most of the leading technologies in use today. Our correction center was centrally involved in the FDA trials of the excimer laser during the 1990s that eventually led to the approval. During that clinical trial period (1991-1996), the clinic of Joseph Dello Russo, M.D., was the most prominent of the 10 participating clinics, performing more treatments than any of the other study contributors. Additionally, in 1997 we gained FDA approval to conduct unique clinical trials to treat higher degrees of nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism with laser vision correction than had not yet been approved by the FDA.
Not only have they played an integral role in helping to develop, test, and implement the excimer laser nationwide, but the LASIK practice was also involved with the adoption of the Intralase laser technology. Our clinic was the first in the United States to use this new laser, offering all-laser LASIK through Dr. Joseph Dello Russo’s pioneering Down-Up LASIK™ technique. Additionally, we were the first practice in the New York area to use Custom Cornea wavefront technology for primary and secondary treatment, and we are pleased to offer this important advance in vision correction to our patients.
