Humanitarian Work

Part of the mission of Short Hills Ophthalmology and Dr. Farbowitz is to help those less fortunate, both at home and abroad. To that end, Dr. Farbowitz has become involved in two very important causes:

Humanitarian Work | Vision Harvest | Health and Humanitarian Aid Foundation | Short Hills NJ | Livingston NJ


Vision Harvest is a local organization that provides cataract surgery to the uninsured around Thanksgiving at the River Drive Surgery Center in Northern New Jersey. Dr. Farbowitz is one of four surgeons at the center who volunteer for this program.  If you or someone you know is uninsured and suffering from cataracts, please apply to the program or call our office for assistance.

SEE International provides sustainable medical, surgical, and educational services through volunteer ophthalmic surgeons with the objectives of restoring sight and preventing blindness to disadvantaged individuals worldwide.

Donations to either of these worthy organizations would be greatly appreciated.  We urge our patients to use Amazon Smile to support these worthy causes.

Dr. Farbowitz took the time to answer all of my questions and alleviated any fears I had of the procedure. Its hard for me to remember what life was like with glasses. Its so much better playing sports, swimming, waking up in the morning, watching movies, etc.
