Our Medical Approach to Eye Care in Sterling

At Bard Optical, our team uses advanced technology to perform tests and screenings that give us a better insight into your whole eye health. Many eye diseases develop slowly, without exhibiting any symptoms until they present the risk of severe vision loss. Our unique, medical approach to eye care allows us to detect a variety of diseases early, giving our patients the ability to get treatment before their eye conditions become more serious.

Health Exams

The key to enjoying clear eyesight throughout your life is scheduling routine eye health exams. During a comprehensive eye health exam at Bard Optical, we use advanced imaging and screening tools to ensure that your eyes are healthy and functioning properly. If we find any signs of disease, we can provide treatment or refer you out to a local specialist. We’ll also evaluate your vision, and if you need eyewear, update your vision prescription so that your new glasses or contacts can help you see clearly.
