Our “A Concert for Hope” raised nearly $25k to help save lives and provide vital eye care to the impoverished nation of Burundi, Africa and specifically the Kibuye Eye Clinic. The sold-out show took place on Tuesday, November 12th at Hopewell Theatre and featured the musical talents of several Princeton Eye Group doctors and staff. Thanks to all of our sponsors and attendees as well as performers PEG All-Stars, Project One and headliner Jill Sobule.
Congratulations to Doctors Epstein, Jadico, Reynolds, and Wong for being named among New Jersey’s Top Doctors by Healthy Living Magazine, as recently reported by Patch.
Healthy Living Magazine, provided by NJTopDocs.com, considers itself a “trusted and exclusive healthcare resource” featuring only reviewed and approved top doctors and dentists. The magazine says it only reviews and approves providers based on merit after they have been extensively vetted.
The doctors of the Princeton Eye Group pride themselves on always being on the forefront of technology. This week our doctors were among the very first in the country to offer and implant the AcrySof IQ PanOptix Trifocal intraocular lens implant by Alcon. This is the first and only FDA-approved trifocal lens implant, offering an exceptional range of distance, intermediate, and near vision to further reduce the need for glasses after cataract surgery.

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.
We are thrilled to welcome our new Ophthalmologist, Dr. Peter Murr! Dr. Murr provides comprehensive ophthalmology services, cataract surgery, in-office laser and minor procedures, speaks intermediate Mandarin, and is bilingual English/Spanish. In his free time, he enjoys reading, soccer, and tennis.
Please be sure to welcome Dr. Murr the next time you’re in the office!
