Low Vision Services

Dr. Arthur L. Siegel of Northern New Jersey Eye Institute

Dr. Arthur L. Siegel provides low vision services at The Northern New Jersey Eye Institute.

His patients receive evaluation and rehabilitation of irreversible vision loss through a wide range of optical and electronic aids. Dr. Siegel offers expert advice, care, compassion, and new options to those learning to live with severe loss of vision.

Although Dr. Siegel has extensive training in general optometry, he has turned his attention exclusively to low vision and vision rehabilitation. He has been a consultant and Low Vision Panel Member of the New Jersey Commission for the Blind and Visually Impaired since 1980. Dr. Siegel is a member of the New Jersey Society of Optometric Physicians and the American Optometric Association and their respective low vision committees. He is also a member of AER, the Association for the Education and Rehabilitation of the Blind and Visually Impaired.

Dr. Siegel's involvement in low vision extends beyond the office as he frequently lectures to low vision groups and support groups for the visually impaired. He has been directly involved in the formation of support groups, as well. Dr. Siegel has also been asked to speak to local and state agencies, which work with the blind and visually impaired. He has developed low vision services for many ophthalmology practices, which previously did not have such a service.

Dr. Siegel continues to update his knowledge with advanced low vision courses at such institutions as the Lighthouse in New York. He has an active involvement in the instruction of new high-tech technology, made available in recent years, for the blind and visually impaired.

Dr. Siegel attended Adelphi University in Garden City, New York before his acceptance to the New England College of Optometry in Boston, Massachusetts.
