I had a retinal detachment that required emergency surgery by Dr. Lalin. Outstanding surgeon and excellent follow up care. He has also performed cataract surgery for me, and also treats my mother-in-law who has macular degeneration.

Dr Lalin is a top notch Doctor of Ophthalmology! He’s done 3 procedures on me and each one was done in a professional and caring manner with excellent results! He is always concerned with your every question and your comfort. His staff is efficient and friendly. The only issue is that there is a long wait time to see him on every appointment but that may be due to schedules that don’t realize his time spent with each patient - so it’s good and bad. Also serves fresh coffee in the waiting room!

Dr. Lalin performed cataract surgery on both of my eyes using the latest in laser technology and installing an astigmatism correcting lens. I never could recognise faces in a meeting and now my far view vision is much improved. I would recommend Dr. Lalin to anyone looking for a great eye surgeon. His staff is extremely well organized and they are always very friendly.

I had lens replacements in both eyes using the laser procedure. Went from 20-60 to 20-20. Totally painless and no needles into my eyes. Everyone at his facility is courteous and all my questions were answered , sometimes even before I could ask them. I remember asking Dr. Lalin what I should do if I had a problem over a 3 day weekend. His response, " Call me." Nice to know he would be there if I needed him. One of the better choices I have made in my life.

Excellent Doctor. This is a doctor who treats his patients like kings and Queens. Eye surgery with this doctor is a cup of tea. Very kind, understanding, compassionate, and very professional. So too is every doctor and staff at that eye clinic.

My eye problems began with seeing black spots. It was unusual to me because I just had my regular eye exam in August of 2015 without eye dilation.Then I was back to my regular eye doctor October 2015.Then thats when I got the scary news retina tear in left eye and in my right eye a retina detachment.My excellent eye doctor recommended Dr, Lalin. I would recommended him wholeheartedly .He takes the time from the first visit to listen,diagnose, and come up with treatment plan.

I had cataract surgery in both eyes with Dr. Lalin. My vision went from 20/80 to 20/25, and I was able to read without glasses. I have had hip surgery and knee surgery, but this was painless. I was able to see great the next day.

Had a cataract removed June 2015. I was left blind in my right eye. Had an AK to fix it and it went from bad to worse. Dr Lalin sent me to another doctor in his office who did not know what to do and told me to come back 7 more times for procedures that still left me blind in the right eye. I went after a year and a half to a wonderful ophthalmologist who did Lasik surgery in 4 minutes my vision was restored to 20/20. Never was treated by a med professional this way.

I have high myopia since childhood. Due to that condition, I've sustained injuries (bleeds) to the retina of both eyes, most recently in the center of my left retina (the macula). I had previously been seen by a group in Sussex County NJ, but had a few less-than-stellar experiences there recently. I decided to go to Dr. Lalin. Every experience with Dr Lalin and his team has been a positive one -- state-of-the-art, knowledgeable, and caring. Simply the best around. I trust my vision to him

The doctor and his staff are very professional yet so kind and caring. I have been a patient at the Morristown office for over 5 years and each experience has been extremely comforting and encouraging. I would most definitely recommend them, they are top-notch individuals!

My wife has been a patient of Dr. Lalin's since 2008. I'd be hard pressed to mention a physician more responsive and more caring than he and his staff. During one particularly trying time on a weekend, he called and checked on her every few hours while involved in a family event. He took the time to meet us at 7AM on a Sunday AM to examine her and advise us on steps to relieve the crisis. We have the utmost confidence in him. she has maintained her vision due to him.

I was referred to Dr. Lalin from a friend who had cataract surgery by him. I am so happy I listened to her! I could not be happier with my results and treatment by Dr. Lalin.

I went to Dr. Lalin for an issue that I was having with my retina. I was very anxious that I could lose my eyesight! My experience with Dr. Lalin and his staff was remarkable! Dr. Lalin was very calming and professional.

I had scheduled an appointment a month ago with Dr. Lalin. I arrived, filled out the paperwork, and was told my appointment was with another doctor. When I stated that my appointment was with Dr. Lalin, the person at the desk replied that I guess things weren't explained to me, but then never offered the reason. I was directed to a large waiting room with dozens of people. It was a "factory like" setting. I left and found a wonderful doctor in a kinder, caring environment.

Visited Dr. Lalin under very stressful circumstances with a sudden loss of vision. His ever so professional and compassionate staff (Jerry, Sonia and Eileen) put my mind at ease from the first call all the way through my visit and surgery. Dr Lalin himself was patient, reassuring, compassionate and incredibly capable. Going to him was the best decision I ever made.

Elected to have laser cataract surgery with Dr Lalin and went for upgraded lenses. The results were phenomenal and utterly life changing. Would recommend anyone considering eye surgery go to this group.
