Our optometrist in Culpeper & King George, Dr. Miles Press, can provide the extra care necessary for 60-year-old (and older) eyes.

Trust Eye Care of Virginia to address eye-related eye conditions in King George & Culpeper. We highly recommend annual eye exams for everyone over 60 so we can check for age-related eye diseases and disorders. If we detect macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy or glaucoma, we can prescribe medications and other care to get them under control. Corrective lenses can compensate for mild cataract issues; if you require cataract removal surgery, we can provide pre-operative and post-operative care. Visual therapy can help you deal with functional problems that affect your eyesight.
From annual eye exams to visual therapy and other treatments, Eye Care of Virginia can help you retain optimal vision into your 60s and beyond. Contact either of our offices to schedule your 60-plus eye exam today!
