Woman getting her eyes checked.

Eye problems take many forms, from irritating temporary issues to severe damage that can cause permanent vision loss. When something is wrong with your eyes, you need to know you have an eye doctor near Culpeper VA who can provide the necessary diagnosis, treatments, and recommendations, here at Eye Care of Virginia, we're happy to provide that eye doctor near Culpeper. Dr. Miles Press has the necessary skills, tools, and experience to address your eye problems to help you with:

  • Dry eye - the Dry eye is an irritating, potentially damaging condition that occurs when your eyes aren't sufficiently hydrated, protected and lubricated by tear film. We can run tests, discuss your lifestyle and evaluate your medical condition to determine the cause of your dry eye. Our optometrist can then recommend eye drops, environmental changes, adjustments to current medications and other helpful remedies.
  • Computer vision syndrome (CVS) - CVS afflicts individuals who spend hours at a time on the computer, producing dry eye, eyestrain and fatigue, headaches and blurred vision. We can help you adopt healthier computing habits while treating your immediate symptoms. Filtered lenses can reduce strain and exposure to blue light, a possible factor in retinal disease.
  • Conjunctivitis - This inflammation of the membrane between the sclera and the eyelid can cause reddish or pinkish eyes on top of eye discharge, itching and swelling. We can determine the cause of your conjunctivitis, apply remedies to soothe your symptoms and recommend preventative strategies.
  • Glaucoma - Glaucoma is usually the result of high fluid pressure with the eye, which damages the fibers of the optic nerves and can lead to blindness if untreated. Fortunately, our optometrist can often get this condition under control through topical and oral medications.
  • Cataracts - Cataracts obscure vision by forming a cloudy barrier to light's passage through the lens. Most cataracts develop so slowly that our optometrist can use corrective lenses to compensate for the early stages. If you need cataracts removal surgery, we can co-manage your preparations and recovery.
  • Macular Degeneration - Macular degeneration is an age-related condition in which the part of your retina that processes central vision is slowly destroyed. We can monitor your macular degeneration closely, recommending dietary and lifestyle practices to minimize its progression. Injectable medications can inhibit abnormal blood vessel growth, a complication of later-stage macular degeneration.
  • Diabetic Eye Disease - Diabetic eye disease damages the retina and creates weak, leaky blood vessels within the eye, leading to permanent vision loss. we can alert you to the condition so you can get treatment for underlying diabetes while also recommending treatments to help stabilize the eye damage.

Testimonials

Reviews From Our Satisfied Patients

  • "Dr. Press CARES about his patients, insurance or not AND he is the most thorough eye doctor I have ever been to. The prescription he gave me, made me see correctly, once again, I am so thankful. Dr Press and his staff are great!"
    Katrin H
  • "I'm so glad I changed eye doctors. I had been going to Dr. H by the hospital for a long time and he had given me a prescription for contacts that I tried and tried to wear with no success. Dr. Press gave the right "size" contacts and was able to walk out wearing the contacts with no problem! He has great manners and even took my blood pressure! Glad to have finally found a knowledgeable Optometrist I can SEE in a regular basis."
    Ines P
  • "I recently needed to change my vision prescription and was finally in need of bifocals. I went to see Dr. Miles Press for both convenience (local eye doctor) and because he accepted my insurance. I needed to have vision in my right eye adjusted several times, and several right lenses replaced. Dr.Miles Press worked tirelessly to make sure my vision was correct and I was never charged for each subsequent visit or lens replacement. I've never had an eye doctor like that before, that really cares and is fast and on the ball with knowledge to get you the correct prescription. He also cared that I went with Progressive lenses over bifocals because they provide three fields of view and eliminate the annoying line. To sum it up, an eye doctor that treats you like he would his own family is a rare experience. I will continue to go to Dr. Miles Press as long as he is in business and accepts my insurance. No question."
