Jonathan N. Kruh, M.D., specializes in routine and complicated cataract surgery, Laser Vision Correction (LASIK/LASEK/PRK), corneal transplantation as well as endothelial transplantation. He is a native New Yorker who enjoys serving the population in his home town. From a very young age, he was adept at pursuits that call for fine motor skills and excellent perceptive abilities, such as painting and photography. These interests remain with him, although these days he is hard-pressed to find an hour to enjoy them; rather, his time is devoted to his patients and their well-being.
