Our Patient-focused Approach to Eye Care
Welcome to Retina Specialists of New Jersey, an ophthalmology practice offering complete and comprehensive treatment for conditions of the retina and the eye. Our mission is to provide a warm, inviting setting that allows patients to feel completely comfortable when they come in for a consultation or procedure. We can advise patients on any aspect of retina and eye care at our Morristown, Hackettstown, or Phillipsburg locations. We are passionate about patient care and education, and we strive to ensure each of our patients is fully engaged and informed throughout every stage of their treatment. If your doctor has recommended you see a retina specialist or you have been experiencing changes in your vision, please contact our office and schedule an appointment.
Your Initial Consultation
The retina, the light sensitive layer at the back of the eye that is responsible for visual perception, plays an especially important role in our vision. We recognize that learning you have a retinal condition or other eye disease can place the patient and their families under stress. When you come in for your first visit to meet with Dr. Sean Lalin, Dr. Susan Freed-Gilvey, or Dr Kruti Shah, the first thing you will notice is the relaxed and welcoming environment of our offices. Each member of our staff is caring and compassionate, and will treat you like a loved one.
During your examination, one of our medical professionals will take a thorough medical history and dilate your pupils to prepare for testing of each eye. After preparatory work has been completed, your doctor will carefully explain your test results and all the treatment options that are available to you, using eye models and computerized imaging to make the information easy to understand.
All of our patients have unlimited access to our doctors to ask questions and thoroughly understand the information that is necessary for their comfort and understanding of their disease or treatment. Patients who fully comprehend their condition and each stage of the treatment plan tend to feel more confident and make better decisions regarding their care, and we will do anything we can to ensure optimal patient outcomes.
Compassionate Care in a Welcoming Environment
Parking at each of our three conveniently located offices is close to the front door of the building. When you step inside our office you will first be greeted by a member of our friendly staff that will introduce themselves and give you a tour. We provide entertaining and educational videos in the waiting room and soothing music throughout the office to help you feel relaxed. If you are hungry or thirsty before your scheduled appointment, we offer a complimentary beverage and bagel breakfast bar so that you can have a snack before you see the doctor.
