Eye care professionals specialize in understanding how the human eye really works, as well as diseases and conditions that affect your vision – many of which do not have obvious symptoms. Eye doctors know how age and risk factors affect vision over time for young and old, and they understand the benefits and features of corrective lenses including eyeglasses and contacts.
Our optometrist takes the time to explain the results of your eye exam, describe your options and listen to your eye care needs. Because maintaining good eye health is an ongoing partnership, we encourage you to ask questions and share your health information, which could be vital to monitoring, diagnosing and treating potential vision problems.
Meet our doctor:
Dr. Doran’s higher education began at The George Washington University, nearby in D.C., where he received a Bachelor’s of Science in Biology. After developing a passion for optometry during his undergraduate studies, he went on to earn his Doctor of Optometry degree at the New England College of Optometry in Boston, Massachusetts. Upon graduation, he completed an Ocular disease residency through Salus University, at the prestigious Omni Eye Services of New Jersey, working side by side with Ophthalmologists on complex medical patients in all areas of the eye. He has been working as an optometrist in northern Virginia ever since.
Since 2011, Dr. Doran has worked in primary care, treating a wide variety of patients, in Tyson’s Corner and around the Beltway. In 2016 Dr. Doran became the owner of Clary Eye Associates, where he successfully sees patients ranging in age from infants to 100 years old. He also sees specialty and hard to fit contact lens patients routinely.
Dr. Doran resides in the area with his wife and their two children. Prompted by his son’s arrival, Dr. Doran has enrolled in the InfantSEE program, providing free screening for infants in his community.
For fun Dr. Doran enjoys exercising and playing ice hockey. He is an avid sports fan, who also enjoys playing golf. He just doesn’t play it very well.
