Learn about the modernization of optometry in NJ! Improving health equity and access to vision and medical eye care.
Welcome! A message from our President
Our professional association, The New Jersey Society of Optometric Physicians (NJSOP), represents approximately 650 members, and approximately 140 optometrists in training. Our licensed optometrists members serve patients in every community within the state and in all practice modalities, including private offices as well as retail settings.
We believe vision is our most dominant sense and it is so essential to lifelong learning and productivity. It is never too early to confirm having adequate visual skills -- ideally, one's first eye exam should occur before starting school. Our members are also prepared to diagnose and treat ocular disease, eye injury, infection, inflammation, and allergy and can coordinate care with primary care physicians and surgeons. Optometric physicians participate in vision care plans, major health insurance plans, and Medicare. We are positioned to meet your eye health and vision care needs for a lifetime!
If you are looking for a well-trained eye doctor who has met the highest professional standards of the American Optometric Association and the NJSOP, then click our Find a Doctor tab to find a local optometrist. Welcome to the NJSOP!
