Myopia Treatment and Eye Disease Management

Myopia treatment is important, as there are a large number of people who are nearsighted. Whether you want to make sure you're seeing clearly, it's time to update your prescription, or you need eye care for your children, getting in touch with the right people matters. We also handle eye disease management to give you the protection you need from issues such as glaucoma or diabetic retinopathy that can steal your vision if left untreated.

Digital eye strain treatment and dry eye treatment are also offered because we know that looking at a computer all day can make your eyes uncomfortable.

Letter from Dr. Posner


March 20, 2024

Dear patients and friends (although I like to think of all our patients as friends):


Fall River Vision

As many of you know, 17 months ago our office of over 35 years became unusable because of the fire at Burns Power Tools next door, and things looked pretty grim. Visit our Fire FAQ page here. Neither my partner, Dr. Herald, nor I had any idea what the future would hold in store for us. I was thinking I might be forced into retirement, which I am not ready for, and, Dr. Herald, who is an excellent Optometrist, along with Ruben (our licensed optician and office manager), began a tremendous effort to locate and remodel a new office. It has been a very difficult and time-consuming undertaking. They have made huge progress and the future looks very bright. We have upgraded the technology to have a more modern office. We have hired new staff, and I believe they will be great additions to our Fall River Vision team.

Another obstacle came up a few months ago, when out of the blue I suffered a mild stroke. Luckily, I have no neurological effects at all, with one ironic exception: a small effect on my vision. Not to worry though. This has not affected my sense of humor (?). This has delayed my return, but I have every intention of returning. Dr. Herald has told me how many of you have called to see me for an exam, and l feel extremely appreciative. I appreciate the frustration this has caused, but I will be back (after I get my service dog trained to read numbers and letters, to help me with the exam).

In the meantime, I urge you to not put off having an exam. I have full trust and confidence in Dr. Herald Get to know Dr. Herald here . Please give us a call. Thank you. I very much look forward to seeing you again.

Very Sincerely,

Dr. Douglas Posner

  • After more than a decade as a house-bound patient, I was told about Fall River Vision and Dr. Christina Herald's fantastic service.Dr. Herald will always have a special place in my heart. I booked an eye exam and she came to my home with her new and fancy portable eye equipment -- all in one bag. She completed a very thorough exam and gave me back the pleasures of working comfortably on both my computer as well as prescribe another pair of glasses so I can now see my family and friends clearly at gatherings.Dr. Herald is a special light in the world, and I think we all know that it is rare and wonderful to meet someone who considers their profession to be a "calling." The quality of her care is inspiring.My comprehensive exam tested my field of vision, checked me for glaucoma, measured eye pressure, evaluated me as to cataracts -- and gave me back peace of mind after so many years I was forced to neglect my eye health.As far as I know, Fall River Vision is the only company in MA and RI to come to patients' homes for eye exams and prescription glasses. I feel so lucky to be a patient now under the care of Fall River Vision and the warm office team that worked with me to get me back on track and to be able to take such joy in eye health once again.

  • I had a great experience at Fall River vision! The building is gorgeous, the staff is friendly and helpful and the atmosphere is just comforting. The Dr was so kind and friendly. They all made it so easy to get an exam done. I am actually looking forward to my next visit there!

    - Alyssa Silva
  • Dr Herald and her staff were phenomenal. The young lady at the front desk was very warm and friendly in greeting me and remembered me from a previous visit. Another young lady who began my examination was also very nice and explained everything she had to do very well and made me feel very comfortable. I was very impressed with both of these staff members and how well they took care of me.Dr. Herald herself is just amazing. You sit there having a wonderful conversation while she does her exam and you are having such a good time talking you’re sorry when she’s all done. Dr Herald is the perfect combination of professionalism to the highest degree while having a personal touch that displays her essential goodness and caring for her patients as people as well as their eyes. All that makes for a great doctor and I feel very fortunate to be her patient. Finally there is Ruben who did the work to find me the proper pair of glasses. I was a little concerned about this but he made it so easy and fun. Just a great guy. The office is absolutely stunning in its appearance reflecting the stunning performance of Dr. Herald and her staff. I recommend her and her office to anyone without reservation.

  • I received my glasses a few days ago. They are wonderful. It is so nice to be able to see clearly again. I want to thank Dr Herald. Being homebound by agoraphobia has kept me from getting my eyes examined for years. Finding Dr Herald was such a relief. She is so sweet and did such a great job. She took her time with such a thorough exam and helping me find the right glasses. I really appreciate everything.
