These reviews are based on patient satisfaction, trust, cost and overall excellence by the practice. We are proud to have our Washington DC emergency eye care office be named to this prestigious honor. We know that maintaining eye health is crucial to keeping eyes functioning properly, which is why we recommend patients come in for a yearly checkup. Our eye exams can detect any eye conditions or diseases that may have come on early, or detect any problems with prescription lenses.
We offer eye exams for prescription glasses and contact lenses as well as emergency eye exams for those who need immediate attention. If you find you have suffered an eye injury, call our Washington DC emergency eye care office immediately. Disease prevention works best if eye diseases are caught early on because some have no symptoms or develop slowly. During your eye exam we’ll discuss your eye care, eye health history, and any future needs in order to ensure that your overall eye health stays on track. If needed, we will perform a refraction for glasses and contact lenses as well as glaucoma pressure testing. Glaucoma is the leading cause of blindness in the United States.
