Welcome to the home of optometry in New Jersey!

Dr. William FerenceOur 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.  Our website will help you learn much more about the present clinical expertise of an optometrist as well as the diverse populations and unique needs which we serve. 

We believe that vision is the dominant sense so essential to lifelong learning and productivity.  Many of our members participate in the InfantSee ® program, a national public health initiative designed to provide professional eye care for infants during their first year.  We work with children to make sure that they have the proper visual skills to perform in the modern classroom and with adults who are likewise faced with unique visual demands at home and in the workplace. 

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.  Optometrists 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!
