Comprehensive Exam

An annual comprehensive eye exam to evaluate eyesight and the visual system is highly recommended for adults and school-age children. Nova Eye Care Center's eye doctors perform a thorough eye exam to provide you with a glasses prescription if necessary and a general eye health evaluation. You will be screened for any eye disorders such as dry eyes, glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration, and diabetes. Vision screenings that are performed by a school nurse, your employer, or online eye tests are not the same as a comprehensive eye exam by an eye doctor. A thorough eye exam by an optometrist is recommended every year even if you have no vision problems in order to screen for eye diseases, vision problems, and general health problems before you are aware a problem exists. We recommend children have their first comprehensive exam before they start school, at around age 4 or 5.

Contact Lens Exam

Contact lenses are a great alternative to wearing glasses. They can be use as the primary source of vision correction, or occasionally on the weekends, on special occasions, or for sports. Contact lenses are considered a medical device and therefore have to be prescribed by an optometrist. It is important that they fit properly and comfortably, and cared for correctly with the proper hygiene and disinfection system. Our optometrists will provide both a comprehensive exam and a contact lens evaluation to provide the correct measurement and fit for you to ensure that you have clear and comfortable vision in your contact lenses and glasses.

  • Soft Contact Lenses for daily, biweekly, and monthly disposables.

  • Astigmatism Contact Lenses

  • Multifocal or Bifocal Contact Lenses

  • Hard or RGP lenses

  • Scleral lenses for corneal disease or keratoconus

  • OrthoK lenses

  • Hard-to-Fit cases

Medical Eye Care

Some chronic eye diseases can cause permanent vision loss and go undetected without any signs or symptoms.

Early detection and treatment are the keys to preserving your vision.

Dry Eye Treatment

Dry eye syndrome is a common chronic disease that occurs when your eyes are not producing adequate tears for lubrication. There are several causes of dry eye disease, such as aging, hormonal changes, or taking certain medications. Patients that suffer from diabetes, autoimmune diseases, and thyroid problems can experience dry eye symptoms. Our optometrists are able to analyze your tears to determine what type of dry eyes you have and provide you with a treatment plan tailored for you. Some of the symptoms of dry eyes can include:

  • Dryness

  • Itchy eyes

  • Burning or stinging sensation

  • Watery eyes

  • Blurred vision

  • Pain

  • Scratchy eyes

  • Contact lens discomfort

Myopia Control

Childhood myopia or nearsightedness rates are increasing, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. Many experts believe that it is due to increased screen time and reduced outdoor time. Treatment for myopia is no longer just waiting for the vision to get worse and provide the child with a pair of standard glasses or contact lenses. There are now advances and proactive treatments to reduce the progression of myopia. Nova Eye Care Center doctors will develop a personalized treatment for your child based on sound research. Treatment options include:

  • Overnight contact lenses are specifically designed to help reduce the progression of myopia and are customized based on each child's unique eyes. The lenses are worn at night only and taken out in the morning. They reshape the front surface of the eye at night and provide clear vision during the day without the need for glasses or conventional contact lenses.

  • Daytime soft contact lenses that are customized with a special optical design to reduce myopia progression. They are worn during the day and provide clear comfortable vision during the day.

  • Prescription eye drops specifically formulated to a concentration that is known to effectively reduce the progression of myopia. Our optometrist will develop a specific schedule and concentration tailored to your child. They are designed to be used at night before bed. Your child will wear glasses or contact lenses during the day.

Laser Vision Correction (LASIK/PRK)

LASIK or laser vision correction is a type of elective eye surgery to correct vision problems such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. Our eye doctors at Nova Eye Care Center work with the best ophthalmologist in Northern Virginia and Washington DC area, who specializes in LASIK, custom LASIK, PRK, and ICLs. We provide LASIK consultation, recommendations and will be there to take care of you and your eyes pre and post-operation.
