Dear Patients,

It has been my pleasure to serve you for the past 40+ years as your family ophthalmologist. I have had the privilege of meeting a great many people and developing lifelong relationships with many patients. It is now time for me to retire and enjoy my wife, children, grandchildren, travel, and tennis!

Please rest assured that your eye health is of utmost importance to Dr. Michael Farbowitz and the Short Hills Ophthalmology Group. Over the last two years, we have worked together very closely and I have ensured that you, my valued patient, will be in excellent hands. Whether you need an annual eye exam, pediatric exam, care of your glaucoma or other eye diseases, Dr. Farbowitz is available to you. He also performs state-of-the-art LASIK vision correction and laser cataract surgery with multifocal lens implants.

Your records are already at the Short Hills Ophthalmology Group’s office, and as an existing patient, you are in their computer system. Making an appointment and seeing Dr. Farbowitz will be seamless. Please note that they have two locations, Short Hills and Clifton, for your convenience.

Over the past five decades, I have watched many families grow and have shared much with hundreds of patients. I appreciate your loyalty throughout the years and will take the memories of all I have experienced with me into my retirement.

If you have any questions or wish to make an appointment, please do not hesitate to call Short Hills Ophthalmology Group at 973.379.2544 and press #2 to speak to their staff.

Sincerely yours,

Dr. Arthur Kern
