Dr. Neiheiser earned an engineering degree from Rutgers University and is a 1991 graduate of the Pennsylvania College of Optometry. He is a member of the Cornea and Contact Lens Section of the American Optometric Association, the New Jersey Society of Optometric Physicians, and the National Glaucoma Society. He chairs the Dr. Leslie Mintz Scholarship Committee, which awards money to deserving optometry students from NJ. He volunteers for the "InfantSEE" program, which promotes no-cost eye examinations for children under 1 year of age. He also was voted "One of the Best Optometrists" in the area by the Trentonian.
He and his wife, Dr. Bernadette, have lived in the area for over 30 years, and found it to be a great community to raise their two daughters. He thinks Plainsboro is a nice little oasis in an otherwise busy area - and a perfect central location for all that New Jersey, New York, and Philly have to offer. When he's not examining eyes, he might be travelling, hiking, singing, brewing beer, or attending a Rutgers sporting event.
