Dr. James Dello Russo, Managing Director: "At The New Jersey Eye Center Ambulatory Surgery Center the patients seem more relaxed, there is less stress. There is a certain anxiety level for people who have to go to a hospital, particularly senior citizens. They don't mind coming here. We are better equipped to handle cataract surgery than most hospitals, because we specialize in that type of surgery. There is no logical or medical reason for someone in good health to go to a hospital for cataract surgery. You don't need general anesthesia, the recovery is quick, the cost is much less, about half —and the savings in anxiety are even greater. Insurance covers the cost of outpatient cataract surgery, and for those who are uninsured, a convenient payment plan can be arranged.  We also provide local transportation for the day and the first post-op day following cataract surgery."
