Dr. Crane caters to both our English-speaking and Spanish speaking patients. Dr. Crane is the co-director of the refractive surgery team at NNJEI.

Dr. Crane is also one of the first in New Jersey to use the new bifocal implant to allow patients over forty years old to see well without glasses for distance and for near or reading vision.

Dr. Crane brings an additional dimension to the services provided by the Institute.

This training included restoration of droopy, baggy eyelids or eyebrows, as well as, cosmetic and aesthetic surgery corrections and skin peels. As an ocular plastic surgeon, Dr. Crane trained specifically to perform intricate reconstructive procedures around the eye. Dr. Crane believes that medical treatment should not be denied if patients cannot pay. That is why he participates in this program, which provides free cataract surgery for those who have no other means to pay for this vision-restoring surgery. Dr. Crane has been asked to direct the Institute's Glaucoma Service. As head of this service, Dr. Crane is responsible for insuring that all glaucoma patients are evaluated and treated under protocols developed by the Northern NJ Eye Care Team.
