At NJEC, our doctors are at the heart of our practice. Dr. Joseph Dello Russo brought together eye doctors specializing in different fields including cataract surgery, retinal issues, glaucoma, and diabetic vision treatment. This allowed him to pioneer the total eye care concept in 1970.
This dedication to providing total eye care has carried through to the present. Since the 70s, NJEC continues to employ highly skilled, highly educated, and experienced ophthalmologists and optometrists.
Dr. James Dello Russo followed in his father’s footsteps and now manages NJEC, heading up a team that still specializes in all the different main branches of eye care. Together we have the knowledge and expertise to fulfill all our eye center patients’ needs.
Every patient receives personalized service. And our doctors are happy to spend time discussing treatment options in detail and answering any questions you may have. They are backed up by an equally dedicated group of support staff. Our multilingual and culturally aware team ensures that all our patients feel comfortable no matter what their ethnic background.

Most regular health insurance policies protect you against unexpected or sudden eye disease or injury. Yet the price of routine eye tests and prescriptions is a concern for many households. Vision insurance can help to lower these annual expenses. It covers these and other vision-related services at a reduced cost.
As a provider of both routine and medical eye care, NJEC accepts a wide range of different insurance plans. See a full list of the health and vision insurances our eye center accepts here. If your plan is not listed or if you have any questions, please get in touch with us and we’ll be happy to assist.
Advances in technology means many systems are now computerized. Yet paperwork is still an important part of everyday life. At NJEC, it’s no different. Before you come in to see us, you may be required to complete certain forms. If you’re a new patient, completing the ‘NJEC New Patient Information’ form will speed up the registration process when you arrive for your appointment.
Filling in the ‘Refraction Coverage and Consent’ form prior to your eye test means the examination will take less time. Printing off and reading the ‘Contact Lens Policy Form’ will give you all the pricing information prior to your arrival.
Our patient forms are available to download and print off in both English and Spanish for your convenience.
