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.

To me this is all a dream and each day that I wake up I have Dr. Farbowitz and his staff to thank! I would recommend Short Hills Ophthalmology, specifically Dr. Farbowitz, to my family and friends, as well as anyone else who is considering having LASIK. You will not be disappointed!
