About The Cornea and Laser Eye Institute

Founded in 1995 by Dr. Peter Hersh, the Cornea and Laser Eye Institute – Hersh Vision Group is a nationally renowned center specializing exclusively in vision correction and corneal surgery. Dr. Hersh’s vision from the beginning was to create an institution dedicated to the eye surgery subspecialty of laser, refractive, and corneal surgery, and devoted to the best patient results and a leadership role in the U.S. in this unique medical field.

As the Institute’s director, Peter Hersh, M.D., is recognized a leader in the field of LASIK, corneal surgery, and keratoconus. In addition to Dr. Hersh’s extensive experience in LASIK and other refractive surgical techniques, CLEI’s excellent patient results derive from our meticulous attention to detail, highly trained technicians, state of the art equipment and laser technology, humidity and temperature controlled laser room and sterile procedure technique, and careful screening and examination of our patients.

To assure your experience is of utmost comfort and success, our staff has been carefully trained in all procedures correcting refractive errors and other corneal disorders, including LASIK, Intralase, flapless LASEK, PRK, CK, Intacs, Wavelight, Kamra reading vision correction, implantable lenses, and other procedures. They will provide you with the essential information regarding vision correction surgery based upon your individual needs, and help you make a better educated decision as to whether laser vision correction is right for you.

The CLEI team will make your experience with us pleasant, informative, and successful. We are always available to discuss any questions or concerns you may have.

Dr. Hersh and his staff were excellent. I was comfortable from the time I walked in until the time I left after the procedure.
