Founded in 1972 by Dr. Joseph Dello Russo, the New Jersey Eye Center has grown to become a multi-disciplinary practice and the premier eye care facility in northern New Jersey. Dr. Dello Russo, a pioneer in the field of ophthalmology, was the first doctor in the Northeast (1978) to offer cataract surgery in a beautiful, fully equipped private surgical center rather than a hospital. Since then, outpatient ambulatory surgery centers became the standard of care.
Today, the New Jersey Eye Center is managed by Executive Director Dr. James Dello Russo and boasts a full ophthalmic staff that includes optometrists for routine eye care, a specialist in glaucoma and a retina specialist with a concentration in the area of diabetic eye problems, dry eye and macular degeneration.
Our on-site full surgical suite is staffed by cataract surgeons, operating room RN’s and board certified anesthesiologists who perform cataract surgeries as well as routine ophthalmic procedures. An optical shop with a fashionable selection of prescription eyeglasses, sunglasses and contact lenses is available at the ground floor.
