At Virginia Neuro-Optometry, we aim to co-manage patients in a multi-disciplinary approach to patient care.  Our goal is to provide diagnostic insight and rehabilitative/adaptive treatments for patients with double vision as well as visual complaints due to brain injury and neurological disease. 

 

PLEASE NOTE - we do NOT see urgent/emergency care (ie. sudden onset) diagnostic cases.  We are a tertiary care provider, please refer those patients to a primary eye care provider first, for timely diagnostic evaluation, and we would be happy to co-manage care with them.

We are currently able to treat patients with telemedicine for patients that reside in Virginia and California
