About Dr. Matt Esperon

I grew up in Los Angeles, CA and attended college at the University of California San Diego with a degree in Animal Physiology and Neuroscience. I worked for a few different optometrists in the area, and found a love and a respect for the profession of optometry. I really enjoyed helping people and felt proud to have a small role in helping them to improve their lives by improving their vision. I then attended the State University of New York College of Optometry, and graduated with my Doctorate of Optometry in 2003. I was supported in school by the US Navy through the Health Scholarship Collegiate Program, and served as a lieutenant in the Navy in San Diego until 2006. I was fortunate to work with many different Navy institutions including the Balboa Naval Hospital, 32nd St. Naval Station, North Island Naval Air Station, the Marine Corps Recruit Depot, and the Naval Training Center where I completed a fellowship in Laser Refractive Surgery. After I completed my commitment to the Navy, I moved to New Jersey to join in a practice with Dr. Paul Berman. Dr. Berman and I met when I volunteered with him to work the the New Jersey Devils, and with Special Olympics Opening Eyes. I became the owner of Focus Eye Care, P.C., and we continue to be the official optometrists for the New Jersey Devils. We are a primary care optometry practice focusing on eyecare for all ages, ocular disease, and specialty optical and contact lenses. I recently began to attend school again to earn a master's degree in Human Nutrition and Functional Medicine.

Myopia has always been thought of something the is inevitable, and that increasingly high glasses are a fact of life for those of us who are unlucky enough to be born with it. Now that the science shows that if we catch it early enough and treat it properly, we can drastically slow down, or even eliminate the progression to worse and worse vision. The fact that kids have to spend so much more time on small screens for school and for work, let alone leisure time, makes the potential problem significantly worse. I grew up with myopia. I started with glasses in 3rd grade, and my vision got worse and worse until I relied on my glasses or contacts 100% of the time. As a parent of three young kids who may grow up with the same problem, I realize the importance of treating myopia as soon as I am able to.
