Center for Vein Restoration has recruited a staff of highly accredited surgeons and licensed medical staffers across 21 locations in Maryland, Washington, D.C., northern Virginia, and western Michigan, all focused on offering minimally invasive, same-day outpatient clinical solutions that target varicose veins and spider veins. Board-certified doctors on staff are trained to treat patients who suffer from leg pain and other symptoms of varicose veins. While spider veins—which are typically a cosmetic blight—may be treated with sclerotherapy, varicose veins often require a more involved treatment, such as laser ablation—an outpatient surgical procedure. Aiming to make treatments as minimally invasive as possible, the doctors on staff can also prescribe lifestyle changes for less serious cases, which may include following exercise and nutrition plans or wearing compression stockings.
In 2001, Dr. Robert Samit had a vision, which was a pretty appropriate phenomenon, considering that he's an optometrist. He saw in the future a network of eye doctors, united under the banner of a single company that provides quality vision care—plus a huge selection of value-priced and designer eyewear frames—to patients throughout Washington DC, Maryland, and Virginia.
Together with company president Sue Healey Downes, they now boast a whopping 51 locations throughout the region, each with a licensed Doctor of Optometry on hand. They equip this army of eye examiners with the latest technology. When a doctor determines that a corrective lens is called for, he or she prescribes them before MyEyeDr.'s team of eyecare consultants helps patients choose from a huge array of frames from such brands as Chanel, Oakley, and Ray Ban RX.
