 About The Neigel Center

This section is designed to help you get to know Dr. Neigel and Dr. Richard. They want to provide their patients with quality health care in a setting that provides comfort, convenience, safety and the most advanced approach to any eye problems or concerns.

Dr. Neigel and Dr. Richard are surgeons with training and experience in both ophthalmology -- the medical specialty devoted to the treatment of disorders of the eye -- and in the sub-specialty of ophthalmic plastic surgery.

Ophthalmic plastic surgery is also known as:

·         reconstructive surgery

·         orbital surgery

·         oculoplastic surgery

·         cosmetic orbital/facial surgery


Dr. Neigel and Dr. Richard perform cosmetic eye surgery and treat eye problems of children and adults including:

·         trauma and injury of the eye and the surrounding bone and tissues

·         crow's feet (fine wrinkles) of the eyelids

·         droopy eyebrows and forehead wrinkles

·         lacerations or cuts of the eyelids or tear ducts

·         baggy or drooping eyelids

·         eyes affected by thyroid disease

·         dry eyes

·         excessive tearing

·         eyelid and orbital tumors

·         craniofacial abnormalities

·         sun damage to eyelids and face


On A Personal Note

  • Both Dr. Neigel and Dr. Richard spend significant time with their patients, answering all their questions, so that they fully understand the available treatment alternatives and their consequences.  They share a common goal to provide their patients with exceptional and personalized care at every visit. 


  • With over 40 years’ experience between them in oculoplastic and facial surgery, both  Dr. Neigel and Dr. Richard have significant experience operating on eyelids and the surrounding parts of the face.


  • If you're considering any ocular, reconstructive or facial rejuvenation procedures, it's important to be in trusting, experienced and skilled hands. Dr. Neigel and Dr. Richard differ from most other surgeons in that they are both oculoplastic surgeons and ophthalmologist. This combination of being trained in plastic surgery around the eyes, along with being trained in the treatment of the eyes allows for a full understanding of both the functional and the aesthetic aspects of cosmetic eyelid and orbital surgery.
