Get to know Ophthalmologist Dr. Thomas C. Aiello, who serves patients in New York and New Jersey

Being a board-certified ophthalmologist and a VISX-certified laser surgeon, Dr. Aiello specializes in laser vision correction of myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism using the revoluntariary LASIK procedure. He also specializes in premium Cataract Surgery, utilizing advanced technology intraocular lens implants for the correction of Presbyopia, and minimally invasive surgical techniques for the treatment of Glaucoma. He is a second-generation Ophthalmologist, joining Aiello Eye Care Associates, PC in Brooklyn, New York City, New York, in 1995 and established the Eye Institute of Central New Jersey, PC, Clark, NJ in 2006 to serve the communities of Union County.

The doctor is a member of the American Academy of Ophthalmology, the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery, the American College of Eye Surgeons, the Medical Society of New Jersey, and is a past president of the Union County Medical Society.

After earning his Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree in Biology from the University of Virginia in 1986, Dr. Aiello went on to obtain his medical degree from the SUNY Downstate Health Sciences University in New York City in 1991. This was followed by an internship at the Cabrini Medical Center of New York City. He served as chief resident in Ophthalmology at The Brooklyn Hospital Center in 1995.

Following his education, he became board-certified in ophthalmology by the American Board of Ophthalmology, an independent, non-profit organization responsible for certifying ophthalmologists in the United States of America.

Ophthalmology is a branch of medicine and surgery, which deals with the diagnosis and treatment of eye disorders. Ophthalmologists are experts in the diseases, functions, and anatomy of the eye. They may provide routine care such as vision testing, as well as prescribe and fit eyeglasses or contact lenses. However, ophthalmologists are also surgeons. They repair traumatic injuries to the eye and perform cataract, glaucoma, and corneal surgery. 

In addition to English, Dr. Aiello speaks Italian and German.
