Comprehensive Management of Ocular Diseases

Cataracts Glaucoma Screening and Treatment Macular Degeneration Management Dry Eye Treatment

Eye Care of Virginia is a leading provider of treatments aimed at the long-term management of ocular diseases, including cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration and dry eye syndrome. Care plans are uniquely developed to ensure each patient receives the most effective and most appropriate treatment for their specific needs.

Cataracts

Cataracts develop when the clear lens portion of your eye becomes cloudy and opaque, making it difficult or impossible for light to reach the retina at the back of your eye. People who have cataracts require ongoing management including guidance regarding cataract surgery to remove cataracts, and followup visits once cataracts are removed to promote optimal healing. Our optometrists are skilled at providing care for patients with cataracts, including presurgical and postsurgical care to help patients achieve the clearest vision possible.

Glaucoma Screening and Treatment

Glaucoma develops when the pressure inside your eye builds up and causes damage to the ocular nerve, the nerve that sends visual information from your eyes to your brain where information is interpreted and turned into visual images we can recognize. Glaucoma typically causes no symptoms until permanent vision loss occurs, which is why it's so important to have regular screenings for glaucoma, especially if you have family members with the disease or other risk factors like high blood pressure or diabetes. If the disease is present, ongoing management will be necessary to help keep intraocular pressure within normal levels so vision loss can be prevented.

Macular Degeneration and Management

Macular degeneration is a progressive eye disease that causes damage to the central portion of the retina called the macula. Most people who have macular degeneration do not realize they have the disease until it's reached a more serious stage. While there is no cure for macular degeneration, screening for the disease can help ensure it is caught early so steps can be taken to help slow its progression and prevent vision loss.

Dry Eye Treatment

Dry eyes are a relatively common condition that can increase your chances of developing an infection as well as cause painful symptoms and blurry vision. Most patients with dry eye syndrome can benefit from special eye drops to moisten the eyes, while others may need minimally-invasive procedures to unblock tear ducts or address issues affecting the eyelids and tear glands. Ongoing management is necessary to reduce the risk of infection and to prevent damage to the cornea.

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."

  • "I didn't know my vision could change, and I also didn't know that I could see the world more clearly than how I was already seeing it! Dr. Press was professional and very helpful and educating! Highly recommend!"
