Meet Dr. Norden and Our Team
Richard A. Norden, MD, FACS, is a board certified ophthalmologist and a leading LASIK eye surgeon in Northern New Jersey. After training in corneal and refractive surgery at the renowned New York Eye & Ear Infirmary, Dr. Norden opened his private practice in Ridgewood, New Jersey, in 1986. He is known as the first LASIK eye surgeon in New Jersey to perform Custom LASIK™ for enhanced precision and surgical accuracy. Dr. Norden has had his work published in numerous trade journals and publications, including Ocular Surgery News and the Journal of Refractive Surgery, and has appeared in 201 Magazine, Bergen Health and Life and the New York Times.
Dr. Norden has been recognized as one of the top LASIK eye surgeons in the country. He is listed in the Castle Connolly Guide: “How to Find the Best Doctors in the New York Metro Area.”
Dr. Norden is one of the busiest ophthalmologists and LASIK surgeons in Bergen County. In addition to performing more corneal and LASIK procedures than any other ophthalmologist in the area, Dr. Norden also teaches LASIK to the next generation of eye surgeons.
How Aesthetics by Norden Came to Fruition
Over the years, Dr. Norden began to notice an unfulfilled need amongst the clientele of his bustling laser eye surgery practice. After helping patients achieve clearer vision through laser eye surgery, he realized that many of them were interested in minimally invasive cosmetic procedures to improve the appearance of their faces, bodies and skin.
Dr. Norden responded by developing Aesthetics by Norden. He put a professional team together and trained them to provide a range of safe and effective cosmetic procedures. Already familiar with leading-edge technology, Dr. Norden was at an advantage when he handpicked his staff members and selected the advanced systems that are now used regularly to help patients achieve their aesthetic goals.
