Eye care professionals specialize in understanding how the human eye really works, as well as diseases and conditions that affect your vision—many of which do not always have obvious symptoms. Eye doctors know how age and risk factors affect vision over time for young and old, and they understand the benefits and features of corrective lenses, both as eyeglass lenses and contact lenses.
Our optometrists take the time to explain the results of your eye exam, describe your options and listen to your eye care needs. Because maintaining good eye health is an ongoing partnership, we encourage you to ask questions and share your health information, which could be vital to monitoring, diagnosing and treating potential vision problems.
Dr. Raghu Named Young Optometrist of the Year
LAWRENCEVILLE – The New Jersey Society of Optometric Physicians (NJSOP) presented its Young Optometrist of the Year Award to Rajeev Raghu, O.D., FAAO, of Jackson, New Jersey, during the organization’s October awards luncheon at Forsgate Country Club, Monroe.
Dr. Raghu has been active in organized optometry since graduating from the Pennsylvania College of Optometry in 1998.
The Young Optometrist of the Year Award is presented to an optometrist whose contributions to the profession and the society are exceptional. To qualify for the award, the recipient has to have demonstrated outstanding growth within the profession.
Dr. Raghu named one of the top 35 Optometric Business Innovators of 2011
Rajeev Raghu, OD, has remained at the forefront of contact lens practitioners for 12 years by knowing that the “science in the box” is not the only thing that matters to patients. “We are completely, unconditionally focused on the individual needs of our patients from the moment they see our website, to meeting us in person, through their entire exam and selection,” Raghu said.
For Raghu, named New Jersey’s Young Optometrist of the Year in 2006, up-to-date technology and a sophisticated office atmosphere set the practice apart. “In addition to being completely paperless, we have the new VisiOffice from Essilor, a computer-based system that measures the patients’ pupillary distance, segment height and equates facial contouring into the digital lens. We spent extra time on staff training and had patients waiting in line to get their eyes measured.”
Raghu, along with his eight-person support staff, takes pride in being “patient-focused.” He cites the economic downturn as an opportunity to offer premium products. “We implemented a financing program for our patients, whereby they can pay for glasses or CLs over a 3- or 6-month period. Patients love that they can still buy the best and pay over time,” Raghu said.
