Dr. Moshe Roth specializes in Vision Therapy and Orthokeratology, and with nearly 30 years experience as a board-certified optometric physician, he treats patients of all ages of their vision-related problems. A wide range of professionals refers their patients with visual processing problems or learning disabilities to Dr. Roth due to his expertise.
Dr. Roth applies these highly specialized skills to help those who need them most – school-aged children, adults who do not wish to have LASIK performed, patients with autism and those who have suffered from a debilitating brain injury or concussion.
Family Eye Care in Old Bridge, NJ also provides general eye care, examinations, and an inventory of eyeglasses and contacts. Progressive lenses, special computer lenses for hi-tech workers, or single vision lenses are also available. Family Eye Care carries over 1,000 frames in our Optical Boutique and prescriptions can be filled on the same day.
Dr. Roth, is certified by the New Jersey Board of Optometrists and is a Fellow of the College of Optometrists in Vision Development.
SPECIALTY CONTACTS: SOLUTIONS THAT BRING CLARITY!
Are you nearsighted or farsighted? The idea of seeing clearly throughout the day either means you need some form of eyewear or possibly LASIK, right? Not any longer! Orthokeratology (Ortho-K) or Ortho-K has become a widely popular form of vision correction allowing you to see clearly throughout the day without eyeglasses or contacts!
Not only is Ortho-k risk-free compared to LASIK surgery, but ortho-k can be worn by children keeping their vision stable and healthy, (No more prescription changes!) Ortho-K utilizes FDA approved molds or gas permeable lenses to gently reshape your eyes overnight for clear vision in the day.
Our eyes help us see our surroundings. Plus, people appreciate the beauty of eyes with their shape, color, and appearance. Unfortunately, when an injury occurs that causes an eye to become disfigured, individuals resort to wearing patches or hiding their damaged eye behind polarized sunglasses. This can cause a lot of stress and social discomfort that has no surgical solution.
Through the wonders of advanced eye care technology, Dr. Roth fits prosthetic contact lenses that are specifically designed to cover the cornea of the damaged eye. The special lens is made to match the other eye vastly improving the appearance of a disfigured eye, and even solving issues with double vision or amblyopia (lazy eye.) Restore your confidence and your vision through prosthetic contact lenses.
Scleral contact lenses are one of the most advanced custom contact lens utilized to help visions with irregular or unhealthy corneas see clearly without amazing comfort. Patients who have keratoconus or underwent a corneal transplant can achieve their ideal vision through scleral lenses.
Dr. Roth has had the privilege to help patients who suffer from a corneal disease with 20/200 or worse vision (legally blind) amazing vision through scleral lenses. Few optometrists specialize in specialty contact lenses, and even fewer eye doctors match Dr. Roth’s credentials, years of experience, and impeccable rate of success.
NEURO-OPTOMETRIC REHABILITATION: GAIN BACK INDEPENDENCE
Neuro-Optometric Rehabilitation helps people who have suffered concussion and brain injury to re-build visual skills that were affected by brain injury. Double vision, blurred vision, difficulty reading and concentrating, are common symptoms after concussion and brain injury. Improving the vision of our patients enables them to regain function and independence.
Neuro-Optometrists have special training and clinical experience in this area and are able to help those who have vision problems related to brain injury. Neuro-Optometrists understand how specific visual dysfunctions relate the to patient's symptoms and performance. They can provide solutions to these problems so that the entire rehabilitation program (OT, PT, Speech, etc.) is then more effective.
The evaluation of the patient with brain injury may include, but is not limited to, the following:
- Comprehensive eye and vision examination
- Extended sensorimotor evaluation
- Higher cerebral function assessment of visual information processing
- Low vision evaluation
- Extended visual field evaluation
- Electrodiagnostic testing
Visual balance disorders can be caused by a Visual Midline Shift Syndrome (VMSS), oculomotor dysfunction in fixations, nystagmus, and disruptions of central and peripheral visual processing. A full description of these disorders is beyond the scope of this paper. The treatment will depend on the visual diagnosis and etiology. Lenses, prisms and visual rehabilitation activities are used in the remediation of these disorders.
VISION THERAPY: REBUILDING YOUR VISION & CONFIDENCE
Vision Therapy is an individualized doctor-supervised treatment program that addresses problems that eyeglasses and contact lenses can't solve. It enables the individual to learn how to use the visual system to effectively input information and make best use of that information. Vision occurs in the brain rather than in the eyes. Vision Therapy is sometimes referred to as physical therapy for the visual system – the eyes and brain.
Vision Therapy is a supervised treatment program designed to correct visual-motor (eye-based) and/or brain-based issues that involve perception and processing. Vision Therapy helps children and adults who have not developed the visual skills that are needed for effective reading, writing, and learning. These skills include eye movement and focusing skills, convergence, eye-hand activity, visual memory skills, etc. Often there is a vision problem at the root of a learning disability, a diagnosis of ADD/ADHD or Dyslexia. At times, people suffer a traumatic brain injury, a concussion, or stroke, and have lost visual skills. Visual skills can be developed and regained.
A comprehensive eye exam tests more than visual acuity. Parents frequently say: ‘But the doctor said his vision was fine’. Vision is so much more than just distance "20/20” acuity.
In addition to checking eye health and acuity, the doctor should know to check binocular function and refraction.
