“In as few words as possible I would have to say I’m extremely pleased with Del Negro & Senft Eye Associates. The entire staff is extremely caring and professional and the results from my two surgeries went beyond expectations. As I told Dr. Senft, ‘If all of the different doctors I see gave me results like he did I’d be a very happy man.'”

Anita’s eyes were progressively getting worse. She explained, “I need a great amount of light shining on my book or my computer to see properly.” After having laser cataract surgery, she reports that her vision is “100% improved. In fact, I see more clearly than I did years ago. It is amazing.” According to Anita, the best perk following surgery is, “I am not a ‘slave’ to my glasses any longer. I only need them for close-up work or reading. I can see farther more clearly and more sharply than before.”

During her cataract evaluation, Dr. Del Negro answered all of her questions “in a kind and caring manner – even when I asked the same question more than once.” She shares some words of wisdom after having been through the entire process: “If Dr. Del Negro is your surgeon, you have nothing to fear. He takes excellent care of you in his office and in the OR. He really cares about his patients. He is very competent and the procedure is done very quickly. Recovery is also quick.”

Overall, Anita had a very positive experience and sums it up with these encouraging words to anyone considering cataract surgery in the future: “From my first office visit through my second cataract removal and my post-surgery exam, everyone involved treated me very kindly. When you are in Dr. Del Negro’s hands or the hands of his staff, you are treated like a fond family member. The wonderful restored vision you end up with is icing on the cake.”

John sought out Dr. Del Negro to improve his deteriorating vision. For almost 50 years he had relied upon glasses and contacts to see the world more clearly. Now, he says, “I have a renewed outlook on life thanks to my improved vision.”
 
He shares his positive experience:
 
“The entire journey from the first phone call requesting an appointment to the cataract operation was quite easy. The patient is moved through the process in an organized, precise, and comfortable manner. Dr. Del Negro was very considerate in addressing my needs for improved vision. He explained the various Lens options available and was quite patient with my many questions. I felt confident that I would experience favorable results. My new vision is like a miracle. The blurriness caused by the cataracts is gone. Objects at a considerable distance appear sharp and clear. Also, I do not need to carry reading glasses to read a dinner menu or a label at the supermarket. For me, this is a major quality of life improvement.
 
I would recommend Dr. Del Negro without hesitation. I knew I was in good hands (forget about Allstate).”

During her annual exam, Cynthia expressed concern that she was having difficulty driving on highways and could not determine if vehicles were trying to pass her on the left. It was recommended she follow up with Dr. Glatman for an evaluation. Further testing revealed that the excess skin on her lids was interfering with her line of vision.
 
Dr. Glatman reviewed all her options. Cynthia scheduled the Blepharoplasty procedure after reflecting on how her declining vision prevented her from doing the things that she enjoyed and/or wanted to accomplish on a daily basis. “I am the head of my household and needed to drive. I was not able to go on trips of any kind due to my vision problems. My peripheral vision was bad in my left eye which made highway driving impossible.”
 
About two weeks after the procedure Cynthia began to notice a difference in her vision. She explains, “I am a new person . . . I can see again. I just took a trip to North Carolina and did great.” She now takes the Parkway to visit her daughter, which she avoided doing before she had the surgery. “I feel whole again and sure of myself, especially when driving.”
 
According to Cynthia, Dr. Glatman went over and above and was very thorough. She reports, “I will continue to recommend Dr. Glatman.”

“Dr. Wiedeman has done an amazing job in correctly identifying our needs in order for us to have the best vision. She always answers all of our questions with valuable suggestions, and all of the staff at the practice are helpful and courteous. In the past, my children Nick and Amanda have been misdiagnosed by other eye doctors and had really negative experiences – but fortunately, we met Dr. Wiedeman and she changed that for my entire family. We feel comfortable with her diagnoses and enjoy coming to the eye doctor – she always goes above and beyond for our family and I am sure she does the same with all of her patients. Dr. Wiedeman is a compassionate, knowledgeable and exceptional doctor – we have referred several friends to her because we have the utmost confidence that anyone would be thrilled with her treatment.”

Dr. Robert McTaggart was referred to Dr. Shah by a corneal specialist for a Keratoconus contact lens fitting. He explains, “As a healthcare professional my eyesight is the highest priority. Dr. Shah is very professional, patient and detail–oriented, making sure I have the best fit and vision. She is knowledgable and informative, and the exam was thorough and friendly. The staff is the nicest of any office I’ve been to – they answered all my questions. I have never seen better and had a more comfortable set of contacts – my patients thank you!”

Dr. Shah has treated me a number of times for dry eye syndrome. She is so efficient and professional. Last time I had my appointment time mixed up with the wrong day and I was so happy she did not send me away, but told me to wait and she would see me. I have been seen at both the Neptune and Brick offices. Both staffs from each office were courteous.

Kara had what she refers to as, “awful,” vision (-3.75), and, for 15 years, relied upon glasses and contacts. Her goal for having Bladeless LASIK was “to wake up and not have to worry about glasses/contacts.” She was referred by her cousins, one of whom already had LASIK performed by Dr. Senft a few months earlier. According to Kara, her evaluation was “very thorough. Everyone was so kind and encouraging.” Following the procedure, she states that her “quality of life has improved, everything is so much easier.” For the first time in over a decade she can “fall asleep to TV/movies, wake up in the morning and see without reaching for glasses, and wear sunglasses!”
 

“Dr. Senft has truly given me the gift of sight,” Kara reports, “I can’t believe a 15 minute session has completely changed my life. . . Dr. Senft went above and beyond to take care of me. He even came in on his day off to be there for my 1-week post-op checkup. That meant a lot to me.”
 
When relaying her experience to friends, Kara explains that she “couldn’t ask for a better doctor–kind, attentive, and thorough.” Her words of encouragement to others: “Get it! So simple for such a drastic life change.”

Michelle selected Dr. Del Negro for his “professional reputation, association with JSUMC, years of experience, and number of surgeries performed.” She elected to have the ReSTOR® Replacement Lens and was thrilled with the immediate results. She states, the lenses “improved my quality of life.” She can now “see clearly with more vivid colors and clarity.” Her experience with the staff was “outstanding. They are well-trained, patient, and pleasant.”
 
Reflecting on her positive outcome, she would urge friends, “Do not hesitate to have this life-changing procedure.”

“My new vision has given me an open window to another world that I had been missing.”
 
Ronald wore glasses for more than 12 years before deciding to “improve vision for clarity and sharpness” with cataract surgery. Like many people diagnosed with cataracts, he experienced “halos around lights, difficulty reading without prescription glasses, and dull colors and fine details missing.” Looking to improve his vision, Ronald sought out Dr. Senft because he was “highly recommended.”
 
Ronald received a “thorough exam with positive feedback” from Dr. Senft to prepare for his procedure. “Dr. Senft helped put my mind at ease through his thorough explanation and visual aids. He takes the time to answer my questions completely.” Dr. Senft informs patients of their options, including advanced technology lenses, when they meet specific criteria. Ronald opted for the elective Toric Lens to correct his astigmatism.
 
He describes the procedure as, “No pain (but lots of gain).” He is now experiencing 20/20 vision and happily reports “no need for glasses.” His quality of life has greatly improved as he is “enjoying reading more as well as driving.” Ronald is now amazed at the details of everything that surrounds him. A year after the procedure he can still “see signs farther away than before and watch TV without squinting.”
 
Ultimately, Ronald’s life had been enriched. He explains, “Life is not only good, but Dr. Senft made it better. WOW! Thanks.”

Harriet has worn glasses since she was 5 years old. It eventually became painfully clear to her that she was withdrawing from activities with her children and grandchildren and she was getting discouraged. They would ask her to go to the movies or out to a restaurant. She would say, “No, I don’t want to go to the movies,” not because she didn’t want to, but because she was “frightened.” She remembers being surrounded by family at different outings, trying to find her way, asking, “Is that a step, or not?” She couldn’t see out of her right eye, and her left eye was not much better. She was also unable to read, which discouraged her even further.

It really upset her when she realized she was unable to distinguish her children’s faces. She has a very close family, and eating out was something they enjoy doing, but she even shied away from this because she had to “sit a certain way because the lights were too bright.” Always the rock of her family, she fell into a “depressed mode” because she felt sad that she couldn’t be around family, read, or watch TV like she used to. During this trying time she explains, “My faith and trust in the Lord is what kept me going.”

Then, at the urging of a friend, she met with Dr. Senft. Initially she was afraid, but she explains, Dr. Senft “made me feel like I was going to be fine.” After her cataract surgery she said, “My vision is such a blessing, I can see!” She explained that a little task like signing into a doctor’s office is so much easier and everything looks very bright and clear. “I’m so happy!”

How does she feel about her surgeon? “He is a God-sent man. Dr. Senft is such a wonderful person, he has great integrity. I love him! Bedside manner is No. 1. He found my sister in the waiting room to let her know I was OK after surgery. This is my true testimony and comes from my heart.”

She also wanted to recognize the staff at Seashore Surgical. They were “awesome, so sweet, loving and gentle.”

Rita Campbell is a local artist whose time is spent capturing images around her oceanside Victorian home. In recent years, she noticed that her vision became impaired which prevented her from going out at night, but freely admits that she put off cataract surgery as long as possible because she was anxious. About a year ago, she mustered up enough courage for her cataract procedure and has never looked back.
 
“I had great faith in Dr. Del Negro and felt he was the right one, all the seniors know about him…He was very re-assuring throughout the procedure and the different steps [of the Cataract Evaluation] were nice.” She experienced improvement in her vision shortly after the procedure: “I can read, see clearer, brighter…the day is brighter, people are clearer, I can go outside in my garden and see what grew from the night before.”
 
After the procedure she saw Dr. Shah for her post-op visits. “She was very patient, I came to value her very much.”
 
She now has 20/20 vision with a slight reading script. It is clear that her improved vision directly impacts her creative endeavors. “I’m painting with less of a yellowish/tannish color.” She remarks that her work is much brighter and laughs, “The mustard is gone.” She works out of her sunroom that is washed with northern light and explains her process like a religious experience. Conditions need to be right, “I don’t paint every day, I paint only on feeling.” Engrossed with each piece, she created “Surfer” in a few hours on a piece of salvaged wood. Two of her paintings are featured in the Carmen A. Biase Center for seniors in Bradley Beach and three others in the children’s section of the Bradley Beach library.

Mr. Conti met with Dr. Glatman for a “very thorough and complete” evaluation regarding his eyelid condition. He opted to pursue bilateral eyelid surgery. Mr. Conti found the procedure itself to be “painless” and happily reports that his vision is “100% better” following the blepharoplasty procedure.

“Dr. Glatman is the best. I would highly recommend her. Seeing, driving, and reading are greatly improved.”

“I’m very, very pleased! I can’t believe the difference in what I can now see without glasses. I don’t even need them to read. I healed very quickly with no discomfort. When I go to sew or mend. I can get the thread right through the needle. In the past I had to work at it. Driving at night is much better-the red and green lights don’t look like fireworks anymore, they look like round circles again. I am now doing as much driving as I did when I was working.”

Dr. Del Negro – I wanted to let you know that you gave me the gift of clear vision when two other doctors failed. I can now drive at night and am much more comfortable driving during the day. I am thrilled with my new glasses. Thank you and the staff at your office.

Mrs. Butler had cloudy vision and opted to pursue laser cataract surgery with Dr. Senft after wearing glasses for 29 years. She reports that her vision following surgery is “very clear and much more focused. I can watch TV and drive without glasses.” Now she is able to drive at night, something she couldn’t do prior to surgery.

“The exam was very thorough. The doctor and his staff explained the procedure and gave me literature to read. The procedure was a breeze. Dr. Senft is totally professional and explains everything in clear, easy-to-understand terms. I always felt confident in his hands. The whole experience was great – including the great care at the surgery center. The nurses and staff were wonderful.”

“During the week of Labor Day my family and I vacationed in Ocean Grove, N.J., for five days. Late one evening I very suddenly felt a foreign object in my right eye. I proceeded to try to wash it out with all the usual methods, but to no avail. The object became trapped far under my upper eye lid and would not come out. I knew I needed to go somewhere for help. I considered the local urgent care, but felt they might not have the necessary expertise for an eye emergency. As such, I looked up local optometrists, as my own optometrist back home had once before removed some basement dirt from my eye. Del Negro and Senft in Neptune City was only a few minutes drive and opened the earliest in the morning of the local optometrists, so I decided to call them.
 
I was taken back by a doctor’s assistant and seen by Dr. Wiedeman minutes after arriving. She quickly determined the location of the embedded object and went ahead to remove it from my upper eye lid. This of course is no easy task, especially as I do not wear contacts and have never been comfortable with anything or anyone touching my eyes, and also, as Del Negro and Senft is not my regular optometrist and I had never been there before. After removing the object, Dr. Wiedeman also took time to talk to me about my mild dry-eye syndrome and to suggested methods of coping with it.
 
I am very grateful to Dr. Wiedeman and the staff of Del Negro and Senft for getting me in so quickly and taking the time to help. They definitely saved my vacation (and my family’s) from becoming quite unpleasant.
 
Were I living on the upper part of the Jersey Shore, I would be very pleased to have Del Negro and Senft as my eye doctors.
 
Thank you!”

I have often recommended your office to others. You are very professional, pay attention to appointment times, and have a very knowledgeable and pleasant staff. And, most of all, I appreciate and thank Dr. Senft for taking care of my precious eyes.

My mom, who passed away a few days shy of 90, was a seamstress and an artist and entrusted her eyes to Dr. Del Negro decades ago. Her eyesight was everything to her. I followed in her footsteps as did other family members, and could not be more pleased by all the caring doctors and staff. Thanks for being there!

Pam KimakGeneral Practice

“I was very anxious before the visit but everyone in your office – from the time I made the appointment up to when I walked in – were absolutely pleasant and understanding. They put me at ease with their welcoming and friendly attitudes. The assistant who helped me at the start of the exam was knowledgeable and sensitive to my apprehension. Dr. Shah’s personality and easy spirit relaxed me the moment she walked into the room. I have mentioned the office and doctor to others and will continue to do so. My mom had serious eye issues and I have been scared to go for check-ups, but having such a positive experience this time has made me more confident that I will do my exams in a much more timely fashion. Thank you for fostering such an environment that gains results as the one I felt.”

After hearing about Del Negro Senft Eye Associates from a relative, Mary Buletza scheduled an appointment and has been a loyal patient for many years. She says, “The staff is courteous and professional and the office runs very smoothly. There is a calm atmosphere and smooth transitions from room to room. The examinations are always pleasant and professional, my questions are always answered. Dr. Shah always gives me a thorough checkup, reassuring me that my vision is under control. I am very thankful for all the years of care I have had, and I would not hesitate to advise family or friends to go to your office – I have always had great visits – reassuring and relaxing.”

Maryellen wore glasses for 53 years before meeting Dr. Glatman. She was having a difficult time reading prior to cataract surgery. In fact, she found herself reaching for a magnifier for many of her daily tasks. “I couldn’t read any fine print anymore—even with my glasses. Trying to read receipts in restaurants or price tags was difficult. It was horrible! My eyes were tired all the time because I was straining.”
 
To her surprise, her vision improved the morning after cataract surgery with Dr. Glatman. “She’s been wonderful,” Maryellen remarked. “The next morning I was watching TV with my glasses on as usual and had to flip up my glasses so I could read the print at the bottom of the TV screen. It was amazing! It’s definitely an adjustment—but a good one. I was used to wearing glasses for distance all those years. I keep reaching for my glasses on my head or the tip of my nose, but don’t need them anymore.”
 
She explains her current vision: “It’s just a pleasure to be able to read again—I love doing the Sunday NY Times crossword puzzle. I’m a big reader. I always have a magazine, book, or Kindle in my hands. I feel like I can read again!” Reflecting on her new and improved vision she realized, “Life is a lot easier when you can read—I was always asking my daughter to read the receipts to me, or would use a magnifier to look at medicine bottles to read the small print. It’s scary not being able to see.”
 
She’s already told all her friends about her experience, “It was so easy, it doesn’t hurt, there’s no downtime really, and the next day you can see!”

Prior to meeting with Dr. Glatman, Richard found himself having to turn his head more to truly see his surroundings. Due to his limited vision, he embarked on an extensive evaluation. Dr. Glatman, who Richard describes as “knowledgeable and skilled,” made him feel more comfortable during this visit by providing a thorough explanation of the eyelid condition that was affecting his vision and type of surgery he could undergo to improve it.
 
Having been through the entire process, he has encouraging words for those who may need to consider Blepharoplasty: “It was not painful or debilitating.” Following the procedure, he “immediately” noticed that his vision was “much improved.” Reflecting on his new vision, Richard explains, “The difference between the before and after was dramatic. I feel more alert. I feel more confident driving now that I can see better.”

My visit to Dr. Senft was an excellent experience. He gave me a thorough eye exam and I could not ask for a better communicator. He has excellent listening abilities: patient, tuned in to what I related, and responded with very understandable information. I went home knowing how to work with the doctor to plan my future eye care and recommended to my husband that he make an appointment with Dr. Senft, which he did. We are both very pleased with the excellent care received from Dr. Senft.

At the recommendation of two friends Sue sought out Dr. Del Negro after she began experiencing blurry vision and nighttime glare. She opted for cataract surgery with a multifocal lens when Dr. Del Negro presented her with all her options during her evaluation. Before the procedure, she had been wearing glasses for 26 years and her vision was blurry from cataracts. She decided to undergo surgery so she would be able to read and work on the computer, and also to improve her night vision.
 
After the procedure, she said “My vision is greatly improved- I haven’t worn glasses since, and I have no problem driving at night. There was a noticeable improvement immediately, and it increased in the following weeks. Now, my eyes don’t get tired when I’m working, I can go out at night, and I’m not constantly looking for my glasses! Before the surgeries, I felt confident that they would be successful because of the care that was taken – once the procedure was explained by Dr. Del Negro and his staff, I wasn’t nervous at all. They provided detailed explanations, and the nurses at the surgery center assured me that Dr. Del Negro was ‘good, fast, and the best-‘ I agree, and already referred two people for cataract procedures. The surgery was quick and very comfortable – I felt absolutely nothing! Dr. Shah was excellent too, especially when I developed a swollen gland that became a cyst. My new vision is worth every penny of the money I spent on multifocal lenses.”

“Thanks again, Dr. Senft, for seeing me in your practice a few weeks ago. While I haven’t been to an eye doctor in years, the thoroughness, professionalism, quality of staff – including the doctor – was top-notch. Really appreciate it – it was easy, and I felt I was well informed and diagnosed.”

During her yearly exam Roseann explained that she was experiencing decreased vision, both near and far. Her eyelids were getting in the way of enjoying daily tasks. She recalls, “My vision bothered me for well over a year before the procedure.”
 
Throughout the course of her consultation with Dr. Glatman, Roseann learned that she was a candidate for Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery. She recalls that the first meeting with Dr. Glatman set her at ease. “I like Dr. Glatman. She’s very nice, very kind, and very professional. I would recommend her in a minute.”
 
A passion for reading gave Roseann an incentive to schedule the procedure. “I love to read, that is my pastime—If I’m not reading at home I’m reading at the beach. It’s the joy of retirement. I never thought I would have the time. I had the procedure to improve my vision while reading.”
 
“It was getting to the point where I felt like I had to use tape to hold my eyes open. Before the procedure I fell asleep more easily because my eyes were so downcast. My friends would often joke with me, ‘Wake up!’ and I would say, ‘I AM awake!’ They were also pleased with the results.”
 
“Now, I can read for a more lengthy period of time because I don’t feel that heaviness over my eyes anymore.”
 
Three months after the procedure, Roseann explains, “The procedure helped me and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it.”

DebarahLee was beyond legally blind, even with using a corrective lens, when she met Dr. Glatman for her cataract evaluation. Throughout the process, she found Dr. Glatman to be to be “kind, compassionate, and highly skilled.” According to DebarahLee, Dr. Glatman made quite an impression early on, noting that she “did not rush through the exam or questions and was very caring and concerned.” DebarahLee took notice that “Dr. Glatman was concerned that my quality of life [due to the progression of her cataracts] had been altered in a bad way.”

 

DebarahLee wanted to improve her current vision because she felt her poor vision was still “going downhill.” No stranger to glasses, she had been wearing them for about 52 years and was using a magnifying glass in addition to her glasses for about 10 years.

 

After the procedure, DebarahLee felt like her vision was clear and bright, and she saw an immediate improvement. Relieved, she reports, “I am now able to do things I was not able to do: read, write, see things, stop wearing a pin saying visually impaired, cross streets, and live a normal life again. I have told my friends Dr. Glatman is a very kind, caring, and compassionate person… She is very knowledgeable and highly skilled. I could tell by the way she cared and showed compassion that I was more than just a means of monetary gain. I saw Dr. Glatman was truly dedicated and determined to help me regain my eyesight.”

 

The cataract procedure was “truly a miracle.” This elated feeling followed DebrarahLee into her post-op exam. She recalls Dr. Glatman was “very excited and overjoyed when I told her the many things I was able to return to doing, one being my deep passion for fishing. In the past, I was unable to tie a hook to tackle my line or unhook a fish.”
