Our History


Nova Eye Care Center has been serving Northern Virginia and DC metro area since 2008. We are independently owned by an Alexandria optometrist, Dr. Tina Kelly. We started in a small space next to Sears Optical in Landmark Mall in Alexandria VA and moved to our current location on Duke St in 2013. In our expansion, we added an optical shop with over 600 quality eyeglasses and sunglasses frames that appeal to all budgets and invested in new technologies to help you see better. At Nova Eye Care Center, our primary focus is you and our goal is to provide you with quality, personalized, and thorough eye care. We strive to provide you with the best customer service and to build a long-lasting relationship with you. Our optometrists have a combined 30+ years of experience in eye care. They are highly trained with extensive experience and knowledge to diagnose and treat a full range of eye diseases and vision problems to help you see better. Here's what our patients are saying about  us.
