Amazing. I can see like I am 18 again. I had no idea how badly cataracts had impacted my vision. I only knew something was wrong. Based on his excellent reputation, I called Dr. Lalin. He replaced the affected lenses in both eyes. I was able to continue working with almost no downtime and very little discomfort. Thank you Dr. Lalin.

I was seen by Dr Shaw yesterday for a routine eye exam. She is an unbelievable optometrist. My visit was extremely thorough, comprehensive and informative. She spent an enormous amount of time with me. Her assistant Caroline was exceptional. My experience was incredible. I unequivocally recommend her and will continue to see her going forward. 5 stars plus!

Do I Need a Comprehensive Eye Exam?

Woman at eye exam

Preserving your vision and maintaining good eye health starts with a focus on prevention and early detection of any problems. Comprehensive eye exams are recommended for people over the age of 60, those with sudden changes in visual acuity, or people who have risk factors for certain eye problems. During an appointment at our Hackettstown or Morristown practice, we can determine if you suffer from any eye conditions and recommend the best course of treatment.

Types of Eye Conditions

Flashes and Floaters

In most cases, flashes and floaters are little more than a benign annoyance. However, a sudden increase or onset of eye flashes could be early warning signs of a more serious problem, like retinal detachment. When floaters become disabling, they can be treated with either a laser or surgery.

Flashes and Floaters

Retinal Detachment

Retinal detachment is a very serious condition that can threaten your vision, and it should be treated as an emergency. Symptoms include a sudden increase in the number of floaters you observe or a heavy feeling in the eye. Early diagnosis at either our Hackettstown or Morristown practice is important to increase your chances of successful treatment. 

Retinal Detachment

Retinal & Macular Conditions

There are a number of eye conditions that affect the retina and macula, including diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration (including age-related macular degeneration), macular holes, central serous retinopathy, cystoid macular edema, and more. We can diagnose these eye diseases for patients at our Hackettstown and Morristown, NJ, offices, and discuss your treatment options.

Retinal & Macular Conditions

Dry Eye

Occasional dry eyes are a normal concern that can result from seasonal allergies and certain medications. Chronic dry eye, however, can cause serious discomfort and impair your vision. Before recommending treatment for this common condition, our ophthalmologist or optometrist will first determine the cause of your dryness.

Dry Eye

Glaucoma

Glaucoma is a progressive condition often characterized by a buildup of pressure within the eye, specifically on the optic nerve. Left untreated, glaucoma can permanently damage the optic nerve, and even cause blindness.

Glaucoma

Pterygium

These benign growths occur on the white portion of the eye and are usually caused by prolonged exposure to sun, dust, and dry conditions. Although pterygium is not considered a serious health condition, it can cause discomfort. Your ophthalmologist may recommend drops or surgery.

Pterygium

Cataracts

Cataracts are a buildup of proteins that cloud the clear lens at the front of your eye, eventually causing blurred vision, vision loss, and blindness. Dr. Lalin offers all-laser cataract surgery to restore your vision, which makes treatment faster, safer, and more precise than traditional surgery.

Cataracts

Refractive Errors

Refractive errors such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism can seriously affect your vision, making it difficult to see near objects, distant objects, and objects at all distances. In addition to offering LASIK to permanently address the refractive errors that cause blurry vision, we also have optical boutiques at both our Hackettstown and Morristown offices. These optical shops offer prescription glasses, sunglasses, and sports goggles, along with designer brands.
