Welcome! A message from our President

Dr. GershenowOur professional association, The New Jersey Society of Optometric Physicians (NJSOP), represents seven hundred of the state’s optometric physicians.  Our members serve patients in every community within the state from their private offices and from medical centers. 

We believe that vision is the dominant sense so essential to lifelong learning and productivity. Our members are 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 high professional standards of the American Optometric Association and the NJSOP, then click our Doctor Locator tab to find an optometrist available near your home.  Welcome to the NJSOP!
