Serving patients seeking cataract surgery with premium IOLs in Northern New Jersey and the surrounding area
The Dello Russo Laser Vision team has over 40 years’ experience helping patients regain clear vision after cataracts. Cataract surgery is one of the most commonly performed procedures today, and patients throughout Northern New Jersey and New York choose Drs. Joseph and Jeffrey Dello Russo for their expertise and experience. Dr. Joseph Dello Russo is a pioneer in cataract surgery and was one of the first “laser” cataract surgeons.
Dello Russo Laser Vision works closely with the New Jersey Eye Center to provide state-of-the-art cataract removal. Cataract surgery is typically a short procedure performed on an outpatient basis. During the surgery, the cataract-diseased lens is removed and replaced with an artificial lens. The doctors at Dello Russo Laser Vision offer several types of advanced lenses to satisfy a variety of visual needs.
In addition to cataract surgery, the doctors at Dello Russo Laser Vision offer several popular laser vision correction options, including traditional LASIK and “no blade” LASIK. They have performed over 160,000 LASIK procedures.

Prior to surgery, the eyes are numbed with eyedrops for complete patient comfort. To begin, the cataract surgeon makes a tiny incision in the eye and fragments the lens using ultrasonic energy. Then, the pieces of the lens are carefully removed with gentle suction. An artificial lens is inserted through the same incision and properly positioned. Finally, the surgeon closes the incision with a small stitch (or it may heal on its own). Patients can opt for a standard lens that restores focus at a fixed distance, or a premium lens that restores focus at multiple distances or corrects presbyopia (the age-related loss of reading vision). After the procedure is finished, the patient is released to go home. Recovery typically lasts a few days and visual improvement occurs rapidly.
