About Us

Welcome to Better Vision New Jersey, a dynamic, state-of- the-art ophthalmic practice that provides our patients with the highest quality of eye care possible. Our staff consists of some of the most experienced professionals in New Jersey, and our entire team is dedicated to improving and maintaining your eye health.

At Better Vision New Jersey, your health and experience with our practice are our only priorities.

Since opening our Cranford, New Jersey location (formerly Cranford Ophthalmology) in 1987, we have consistently provided our patients with the best treatment options and results. We are excited to have expanded our practice to meet the needs of patients in Westfield and look forward to seeing you at either of our two locations. Our doctors—Dr. Joseph Calderone and Dr. Richard Chopin—are fully dedicated to ensuring that our patients are satisfied with their results and have the visual assistance to live happier lives.

The eye care industry is constantly evolving, so we strive to use the latest and greatest available procedures and state-of- the-art technology. We are experts in all areas of eye care, but specialize in the treatment of dry eye and glaucoma, as well as cataracts and refractive surgeries, including LASIK, PRK, and LASEK. While we are able to effectively address all of these conditions, your general eye care is also deeply important to us. We strongly believe in the importance and value of optimal vision, and provide a variety of services to achieve this goal. Our doctors are dedicated to providing the best possible preventative care to help maintain your long-term eye health.

While we have treated thousands of patients, our work is never finished. We strive to improve the life of thousands more in the future. With proper eye treatment and care, there is no limit to what you can accomplish with the newfound vision and confidence that our practice consistently provides. Through our website, you can learn more about our many different procedures, treatment options, and care plans. We invite you to join the Better Vision New Jersey family, and make an appointment with us today!

    • James O’Gorman
      I had cataracts and after Dr. Calderone operated on my eyes, my vision is now 20/20. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. It’s a tremendously well-equipped practice in terms of the technology that’s used to take care of your eyes and the technical staff is also superb.

    • Sherry Villa
      I have been a patient of Dr. Calderone’s for more than I can remember and I have always found the physicians and entire staff to be professional, caring and thorough in everything they do. All the physicians spend quality time with each patient to hear about their concerns or answer questions. I personally would highly recommend him to family and friends.

    • Mary Hannibal
      I had originally gone to the practice for floaters in my eye and discovered that I had cataracts. I found everyone at Better Vision New Jersey—from the physicians to the staff—to be extremely kind and caring. I was very impressed with the quality of care I received and how well they not only treated me, but also my husband. Their facilities are state-of-the-art and they are absolute experts in their field.
