Berkeley Heights Eye Group PA

About Us

The Berkeley Heights Eye Group was founded in 1972 as the Summit Eye Group by Dr. Jordan Burke. The practice has been vibrantly offering general ophthalmology services throughout the years. In 1985 the practice moved to our Berkeley Heights location. In the beginning of 2013 the practice relocated to our current New Providence location where we provide state of the art care in a newly renovated space.

Our mission is to provide excellent comprehensive eye care to people of all ages. Our staff is caring and knowledgeable. In fact some of our employees have been with the practice for nearly twenty years. This speaks to the continuity of care offered here.

    • We offer complete eye care. This includes performing complete eye examinations and fitting glasses and contact lenses for people of all ages.

    • We now offer convenient contact lens ordering through our website.
    • State of the art imaging equipment (Heidelberg Spectralis OCT) is available to help in the diagnosis of glaucoma and retina diseases. Lasers for the treatment of glaucoma, diabetes and after cataract are all available.
    • Should cataract surgery be necessary, we can perform the surgery in the comfort of a state of the art ambulatory surgery center. We use the latest small incision, no stitch technique. We are excited to now be able to offer access to laser assisted (LensX) cataract surgery. The stay is generally less than two hours and most people do not even require sedating medications. Most people resume their regular activities the very next day.
    • Many people wonder if they could be candidates for LASIK laser eye surgery. Dr. Leventhal offers free screening appointments to help determine if an individual might be a suitable candidate. If someone is an acceptable candidate for the surgery, Dr. Leventhal can perform the required examination and laser treatments. He now offers the latest custom, “no blade” (Intralase) LASIK procedure performed on the latest version of the VISX laser.
