Early Education

Dr. Bradley J. Phillips is a graduate of Cornell University and SUNY-Stony Brook College of Medicine. After medical school, he completed an internship at Long Island Jewish Medical Center and his residency at SUNY-Downstate Medical Center. Subsequently, he completed a fellowship in neuro-ophthalmology, with the esteemed Dr. Arthur H. Wolintz, former Department Chair and Distinguished Professor of Ophthalmology at SUNY-Downstate.

A Pioneer in Ophthalmology

The doctor became renowned as a trailblazer in SUNY-Downstate’s Brooklyn community for pioneering the Department of Ophthalmology’s offering of the no-stitch and no-needle technique and multi-focal lens options to his cataract and presbyopic patients (including the new multifocal and accommodating intraocular lens options). For more than 10 years in Dr. Bradley J. Phillips’ talented hands, this option continues to successfully offer patients the possibility of seeing well at varying distances without the use of spectacles or contacts. The no-stitch cataract surgery enables the eye to heal faster, thereby reducing recovery time significantly. This allows most patients to return to work or sports within days instead of weeks or months, as was common with older surgery methods.

Phillips has maintained a practice that offers laser vision correction (LASIK or Surface Ablation), Laser Assisted or bladeless Cataract surgery, and neuro-ophthalmology in Somerset, New Jersey and the surrounding communities. For the past decade, he has proven himself to be one of the most respected ophthalmologists in the community where he is among the distinguished ophthalmology physician staff at both Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital and Saint Peter’s University Hospital.
