Dr. Dello Russo’s History as NY & NJ’s Top LASIK Eye Surgeon

For half a century, Dr. Joseph Dello Russo has built a reputation as New York and New Jersey’s leading eye surgeon, beginning with the establishment of the New Jersey Eye Center (NJEC) located in Bergenfield, NJ, in the 1970s and extending to today. One of his specializations has become LASIK eye surgery, which he began offering in the 1990s with the establishment of Dello Russo Laser Vision. Since then, Dr. Joseph Dello Russo and his team have honed their skills to give patients some of the best results with LASIK and other procedures.

A Long History Offering Reliable LASIK Surgery

Since LASIK’s initial development in 1974, several improvements on the procedure have made it safe for individuals who are compatible for it. Since those early days, Dr. Joseph Dello Russo has worked with many patients to provide them with LASIK eye surgery when appropriate, providing them with long-lasting results.

In the 1990s, Dr. Joseph Dello Russo was actually involved in helping popularize the procedure, purchasing and implementing the world’s first laser designed specifically for vision correction. Over the ensuing years, Dr. Joseph Dello Russo and his staff would work to continually improve upon the procedure, maximizing its safety and effectiveness while offering other alternative procedures.

The Dello Russo Laser Vision Lawsuit: Overcoming Challenges in the Industry

In the mid-2000s, there was a surge of concern over the safety of the LASIK procedure, but Dr. Joseph Dello Russo and the rest of the Dello Russo Laser Vision team have always worked to provide consistently safe procedures to qualifying patients. 

One Dello Russo Laser Vision lawsuit in 2006 involved a patient who had filed a malpractice suit alleging that the doctor had ruined her vision, but the jury in a Newark federal court ruled in Dr. Joseph Dello Russo’s favor.

“I am very happy for this victory,” Dr. Joseph Dello Russo stated to the NY Post at the time. “Not only for me but for all the good LASIK surgeons, as well as the LASIK procedure itself.”

In the past two decades, there have been many laser vision lawsuits against multiple practitioners in the industry, with Dr. Joseph Dello Russo simply being among the first to come under fire because of his early involvement in providing the procedure. However, Dr. Joseph Dello Russo, has worked to perfect this procedure and only provide it to those who would benefit from it.
