Lindsay Sobel’s Inspiring Story

With the help of Novartis, the Princeton Eye Group had the honor to hear from guest speaker (and PEG employee!) Lindsay Sobel last week.

Lindsay’s talk “All the things eye didn’t know” detailed her journey over the last several years as a patient through various doctors’ offices. Although Lindsay’s battle ultimately resulted in the loss of her eye, she is using her experience to help educate others.

Her talk was both moving and inspiring for our doctors and staff, helping everyone to gain perspective on how each interaction, no matter how trivial, can make or break the patient’s experience. We look forward to hearing more of Lindsay’s brave journey.

Dr. Miedziak sets the mark as pioneer in corneal cross-linking for keratoconus

Exciting news that will forever change the way we approach and treat corneal weakening diseases such as keratoconus and corneal ectasia! The FDA has approved the Avedro KXL Corneal Collagen Cross-Linking System (, and the Princeton Eye Group will be only one of a handful of sites in the country to launch this technology. Dr. Miedziak was one of only two investigators in NJ participating in the FDA-monitored trials, and by so doing, learned how this technology can often arrest keratoconus and corneal ectasia. There were some stunning success stories in patients who previously could not be treated. This specialized non-incisional technique utilizes riboflavin assisted UV-light emission cross-links collagen in the cornea, thereby stiffening it and often flattening extremely steep curvatures.
