Dr. Melania Napolitano is a native of Brooklyn, NY who spent a large part of her childhood in Napoli, Italy. She is multilingual, speaking Spanish and Italian fluently, which benefits her in her professional life. Dr. Napolitano earned her Bachelor of Science Degree at Queens College, NY, and completed her Doctorate at SUNY State College of Optometry.
Dr. Napolitano is committed to her patient's care, providing management, treatment, and diagnosis of eye conditions & diseases, such asdry eye, cataracts, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, and macular degeneration. During her comprehensive eye exams, she spends time with each patient, reviewing their eye health & ways to maintain their vision & total wellbeing.
She loves seeing patients of all ages and has developed a special interest in myopia management or myopia control. At the forefront of optometry & eye health research, we now have various methods to help children & teenagers retain their natural, healthy vision and prevent their vision from worsening! Not only does keeping a child's prescription at a very low level help their vision stay clear, but it drastically reduces the risk of eye diseases like myopic maculopathy, retinal detachment, and glaucoma.
We encourage parents to contact us and ask about myopia management so we can preserve our sight for a better future.
Dr Napolitano also is trained in specialty contact lens fittings for patients with keratoconus or corneal disease. Our primary treatment to help patients with corneal disease is scleral contact lenses as they provide amazing vision & comfort without compromising the cornea.
Dr. Napolitano is passionate about giving back and improving optometric care, and this is clear in her activities outside of her practice. Her volunteer time includes community lecturing and free vision screenings for seniors and children in the community. Her goal is to raise awareness for sight-threatening conditions.
