At Eye Care Of Virginia, we strive to provide comprehensive, primary eye care for the whole family. Preventative and routine eye exams are important to maintaining good eye health. Often, eye and vision problems do not have obvious symptoms or signs, but are easily diagnosed by a licensed optometrist. By diagnosing eye and vision conditions early on, our optometrist is able provide treatment options and in many cases restore or prevent vision loss. The American Optometric Association recommends yearly or bi-yearly eye and vision exams, depending on whether you are at-risk or not.

Technology and Professionalism

Member-doctors in the Eye Care Professionals Group utilize the latest diagnostic equipment and treatment procedures. Each holds a license to practice Optometry; each owns his or her own practice; and each decides how she or he wishes to practice within the guidelines of each State's Optometry Law (all 50 States are different). So, when you select a doctor-member in ECPG, you can be confident that you will receive the best care available from competent, licensed eye doctors across the USA.

Each ECPG doctor has a dedicated practice page on this Web site that lists office hours for and directions to her or his office. There are secure on-line forms for you, to take care of the paperwork part of your exam experience at your convenience, so the doctors will have more time at the office to do what they do best….examine your eye health!

You will receive the personal attention you deserve. Our professional, caring doctors and staff ensure that you are seen promptly and that the time is taken to address your needs and concerns.

In addition to receiving the most accurate eyeglass or contact lens prescription possible, all patients are carefully examined for glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration, and many other potential systemic and eye health problems, utilizing the latest in diagnostic techniques and instrumentation.

Eye Exam and Consultation

During an eye exam, Dr. Miles Press will ask you questions about any symptoms or issues you are experiencing, medications you are currently taking, any blurry vision, your work environment, and your overall health. Family history and previous eye or vision conditions will also be discussed during this part of the examination. Dr. Press will consider this information when determining any treatments or recommendations.

Vision Testing

Regular vision testing and evaluations ensure that you always have the clearest vision possible. Dr. Press provides regular vision acuity test as part of a comprehensive eye exam. Dr. Press will measure how each eye is seeing by using a wall eye chart and a reading eye chart. The results of these tests are portrayed as a fraction, with 20/20 being the standard for normal distance and reading vision. Depending on the results of your vision test, Dr. Press may prescribe corrective glasses, contacts, or eye exercises.

Eye Function Testing

In addition to vision testing, an eye exam in our King George and Culpeper offices includes testing eye functionality. Our optometrist performs several tests to evaluate depth perception, color vision, eye muscle capabilities, peripheral vision, and responsiveness to light. Several other simple tests are completed to determine whether the eyes are focusing, moving, and working together properly. The test results enable Dr. Press to diagnose any underlying conditions that may be impairing the eyes ability to focus or work together.

Eye Health

As part of a comprehensive eye exam, Dr. Press examines the overall health of the eye through a visual examination and optometry. Dr. Press evaluates eye health by visually inspecting the eye and eyelids using magnification and a bright light. To examine the internal structures of the eye, we may dilate the pupils. Increased eye pressure may be an indicator of glaucoma, so we utilize tonometry to measure eye pressure. After completing these short tests, Dr. Press reviews the results and discusses an treatments with you. Contact us today to schedule a comprehensive eye exam.

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."
