At Eye Care Of Virginia in King George and Culpeper, our eye care team looks at the big picture when it comes to your eye health. Getting the right prescription for your eyeglasses or contacts is important so you can see clearly while reading, driving a car, playing sports, and living an active life. Our routine eye examinations and contact lens fittings ensure your prescription provides the visual acuity and clear eyesight you need. If you currently wear glasses or prescription contacts, we recommend an annual eye exam to ensure your prescription is providing optimum vision correction.
Our optometrist in Culpeper takes the time to get to know each patient and their unique vision and eye care needs. By understanding your eye care history, personal medical history and family vision history, we are able to better tailor our services to meet your specific vision needs. This includes anticipating potential eye car and vision problems before they develop. For example, if one or more of your parents or grandparents has been diagnosed with glaucoma, you are at increased risk for potentially developing this condition. African-Americans over the age of 40 and Hispanics over the age of 60 are also at increased risk. If you fall into a high-risk group, our optometrist may recommend regular testing for glaucoma, which can be done through an eye pressure exam. Glaucoma is the second leading cause of blindness in the United States and while it cannot be prevented if it is diagnosed and treated early it can be successfully controlled.
