About Neda

Dr. Neda Gioia is an NJMOM to two incredible daughters, ages 5 and 7, optometrist and founder of Integrative Vision, an optometry practice with a particular emphasis on nutritional interventions and preventative counseling for eye health.  Her eyecare approach involves treating the body as a whole and is truly progressive and inspiring to other like-minded practitioners. As a graduate of Rutgers University, with 22 years of experience in eye care across the country, including 14 years of clinical practice, Dr. Gioia elevates eye care at Integrative by employing a functional approach that encompasses nutrition, wellness, and diagnostics. Through her own unexpected personal health struggles, along with research and experience, Dr. Gioia discovered the importance of self-healing and nutrition in treating chronic disease states. Her success inspired her to pursue a formal education in functional medicine and clinical nutrition to heal, educate, and ultimately empower her patients to achieve better health and better lives. She is currently working towards completing her Certified Nutrition Specialist degree through the University of Western States.
