A Story of The Ages—Why Our


We are happy to serve patients aged 3 to 100. Below, is a tale of our commitment to your eye health through the ages.


Pediatric Eye Exams & Myopia Control

Children's myopia raises the risk of developing serious eye diseases later in life. Myopia management, which entails the use of eye drops, specialized contact lenses, or multifocal glasses, can help slow the often rapid visual deterioration caused by myopia in children.

Our myopia control program offers the latest solutions to ensure your child's vision remains stable and healthy for years to come.

Complete the Myopia Management Quiz to discover whether your child is a candidate for myopia management.

We Fit Contacts For Irregularly-Shaped Eyes

Because everyone’s eyes are unique, the one-size-fits-all approach doesn’t work for contact lenses. If you have ever been told that you're a poor candidate for traditional soft contact lenses, our wide array of high-quality specialty lenses may answer your unique needs.

One of our popular lenses are scleral lenses. These oversized lenses provide relief, clear vision, and visual rehabilitation for dry eye, keratoconus, corneal degeneration, eyelid abnormalities, and corneal ectasia, among other conditions.

We fit custom-designed scleral lenses to your unique eye shape, providing a superior level of comfort.


Dry Eye Affects All Ages—The Treatment is Ageless

Itchy, scratchy, and even watery eyes are the first signs of Dry Eye Syndrome. Yep, it’s a real pain in the “eye”, but the upside is that we offer effective treatments so that you no longer have to suffer in silence.

Whether you have dry eye, presbyopia, macular degeneration, and cataracts, you are neither too young nor too old to have better eyesight at Washington Eye Doctors.

Our Patients Say it Best
Tesimonials of Our Happy Patients


I have been with Washington Eye Doctors for 50 years since the Katz/Kanstroom days. They guided me through bifocals as a kid, contacts as an adolescent and Lasik as an adult. 25 years after Lasik I still have near perfect vision. I just went back for night driving glasses. Always quick, efficient and thorough consistently over the decades.
