There are certain eye conditions that can develop that indicate you should see an eye doctor immediately. If you need an emergency eye exam, contact us at Metropolitan Optical. Our Capitol Hill emergency eye doctor, Dr. Saba Ayalew, can provide you with the emergency care that you need to determine the exact cause of your sudden vision problem.

Whenever you experience any type of immediate vision change, it is important that you contact our office for an emergency eye exam. Sometimes eye irritation can be caused by something as harmless as eye allergies or not getting enough sleep. But other times, if your eyes are red and irritated, it can be a symptom of a serious eye infections such as keratitis, or other serious eye condition. If you have sudden blurred vision, you will definitely want to make an appointment to see our Capitol Hill emergency eye doctor. While blurred vision can be caused by slowly-developing cataracts, it can also be a sign that you are experiencing eye problems caused by diabetic retinopathy. When this is occurring, your eyes will need immediate treatment in order to prevent permanent vision loss. It is very common for people to see floaters as they age. Floaters appear as tiny black spots which slowly float across your field of vision. This is very common, and naturally occurs for many patients. However, if you have a sudden increase in the number of floaters that appear in your vision, you may have a retinal tear which can lead to a retinal detachment. In this case it is also important that you see our eye doctor for diagnosis so you will get the emergency care that you need. Sudden vision loss can be caused for many different reasons including a sudden onset of acute glaucoma. This is a medical eye condition in which diagnosis and treatment needs to be sought immediately.

To see our Capitol Hill emergency eye doctor, simply contact our office and let them know that you need an emergency appointment.

Contact lenses in Washington D.C.

Contact lenses offer several advantages over eyeglasses when it comes to vision correction, convenience, and appearance. At Metropolitan Optical, we want you to know that there continue to be advancements in the technology and construction of contacts. The ones being offered today provide better vision and are easier to wear than even the ones from a few years ago. When you come in for our contact lenses in Washington D.C., we ensure not only that you will achieve the best vision that you’re capable of having, but also that they are the right choice for the current state of your eyes. We do this through a contact lens exam prior to fitting you for your lenses.

The basic breakdown of contact lenses is a choice between soft and hard lenses. While hard lenses may take a little more effort to grow accustomed to, sharper and clearer vision are a benefit of them and they are typically the best choice for addressing severe nearsightedness or astigmatism. Soft lenses come in four basic varieties to meet your lifestyle needs: daily wear, extended wear, disposable, and color-changing. But now, there are two great new innovations among our contact lenses in Washington D.C. With 1 Day ACUVUE TrueEye™ lenses, you get a daily disposable that that lets your eyes breathe like never before. And they’re comfortable to wear all day long. And with Bausch & Lomb PureVision multi-focal lenses, correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and/or astigmatism with unprecedented efficiency. There has never been a better time to wear contacts.

A contact lens exam is the way that we ensure that your prescription will give you maximum benefit and cause you no fuss, trouble, difficulties, or discomfort. Our optometrist will check your eyelids, conjunctiva, and corneas, including their curvature. These are the parts of your eyes that your contacts will be touching. It’s important to detect any potential issues ahead of fitting you for your lenses. This is just another part of our ongoing commitment to you, our valued patient, that extends far beyond selling you contact lenses in Washington D.C.. Whether you already wear contacts or have never done so before, call us today to schedule a contact lens exam and get started.
