Our Culpeper & King George Optometrist Can Diagnose Diabetic Eye Disease

Diagnosing eye diseases, such as diabetic retinopathy, starts by getting a comprehensive vision exam from your optometrist in Culpeper and King George. This gives us the information we need to create a personalized care plan for your eye disease. If you aren't sure if you have diabetic retinopathy or not, here are the most common signs to look for:

  • Blurry vision unexplained by other vision issues
  • Flashers or floaters in your field of vision
  • An inability to see at night
  • Poor color vision
  • Low vision 

These symptoms will also be accompanied by a diabetic diagnosis by your optometrist. Please note that not everyone who has diabetes will experience diabetic retinopathy, but it is a possibility for those with this medical condition. By having diabetes you simply run a greater risk of contracting this eye disease, which if left untreated can lead to blindness.

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."
