Dr. Jennifer Jacobson has been our family's eye physician for many, many years. The entire staff is ... professional and caring. Dr. Jennifer Jacobson stays on top of current research and development which has helped us through some serious health issues. There is also a strong focus at Jacobson Advanced Eye Care on maintaining eye health as well as careful guidance in pursuing better life quality with some of the current options available for vision. They are well connected with an excellent surgical team. Under careful guidance from Dr. Jennifer Jacobson and Dr. Tom Harvey, I pursued cataract surgery with vision correcting lens implants. It has been life changing to have the ability to see clearly at all distances without glasses or contacts. Cumberland is so fortunate to have the highest quality eye healthcare.

After a severe thunderstorm of a whiteout with 1” balls of hail breaking 6 of my windows, totaling... my shingles & siding —— one window broke through firing into my kitchen as though through a machine gun. Holding a cookie sheet against the upper double hung window, fighting a firing squad of hail, one hit me above my eye with eyes shut. Thank the Lord. I saw flashing lights almost continuously about 3 days later. Dr. Jennifer Jacobson Turcot dropped everything as soon as she could after her busy day, her staff left just about as soon as I came in. after hrs. (Friday) It was an emergency. She came in just for me!! I was upset after reading this could cause vision loss if you don’t see a specialist asap. (Laser surgery recommended) After many tests being very thorough she said “Your eyes look great!!” Earlier I had been prayed for and the flashing lights disappeared on the way to see Dr. Jacobson. I was healed by the power of prayer in Jesus name 😅😄😎 I had to make sure my eyes were fine. (My security, my sight) Dr Jennifer couldn’t have been more kind. I highly recommend her expertise. I love her personality. Great staff too.

I had a problem develop suddenly and was scheduled to leave town in a few days. I called at approxim... ately 8:30 and they said can you be here by 10:00. I arrived a few minutes before ten was taken to a room for some testing see by Dr. Turcott at 10:20. Diagnosis was complete by 10:35. She recommended 2 over the counter meds I began using them and I'm already seeing improvement. Great Doctor and friendly and efficient staff.

Myopia Management FAQs

What is myopia management?

Myopia management uses certain treatments and technologies to slow or even halt your child's myopia progression. Our myopia control program in Cumberland is unique as we have the latest technology and experience to ensure your child's vision remains stable and healthy for years to come.

Is myopia management necessary?

Myopia is more than just poor vision. Childhood myopia raises the risk of developing sight-threatening eye diseases later in life, such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, and cataracts. Speak to your eye doctor about the best ways to minimize your child’s risk.

At what age does myopia (nearsightedness) usually start?

Myopia can begin as early as 6 and will usually progress until roughly age 20. The longer it progresses, and the higher the prescription, the greater your child’s risk of sight-threatening eye conditions later in life.

When should my child start myopia management?

For optimal results, myopia management should be started as soon as possible. That said, myopia control can help children and teens of all ages.
