A Story of The Ages—Why Our


Serving ages 3 years old to 100! (but If you’re older than 101, we might be able make an exception because you’re awesome!) Below, read is a tale of our commitment to your eye health through the ages.


Pediatric Eye Exams & Myopia Control

First and foremost we believe (and so do the stats!) it is good to start young. We begin comprehensive eye exams as young as 4-5 years old to ensure the eye health of your child.

Secondly, Myopia or nearsightedness is on the rise (so take the Myopia Management Quiz), with the advent of digital technology and a lack of outdoor time. As we know 80% of learning is visual, if your child is having difficulty seeing clearly, his or her learning and/or sports career will be affected.

We Fit Contacts For Irregular Shaped Eyes

Maybe you have been told that your eyes are an odd shape or that you can’t wear contacts—well that's just not so. We have been fitting scleral lenses for keratoconus. For all of you with perfectly shaped eyes, we also have contacts to suit you. And if you have severely dry eyes or need bifocal corrections there are contacts for that as well!

We sell contact lenses here in the office for your convenience...We know we can find you a lens that fits you and your life-style.


Dry Eye Affects All Ages—The Treatment is Ageless

Itchy, scratchy, even watery eyes are the first signs of Dry Eye Syndrome. Yep, it’s a real pain in the “eye”, smile, but the upside is we have easy treatments so you don't have to suffer in silence. From dry eye, to presbyopia, macular degeneration and even removal of cataracts, you are neither too young nor too old to have better eyesight at Washington Eye Doctors.
