Specialist in the Northern VA area

Post by Jennwilson »


I was just diagnosed with iritis yesterday after having symptoms (eye pain, inflammation, blurred vision) for about a week. I was referred to an ophthalmologist by my family Dr but would like to find a true specialist near me if possible. I am in Northern Virginia, also near Maryland and DC. I looked at the specialist/fellow listings on uveitis.org and see the following in my general vicinity:

David J. Forster, MD Background Publications

Northern Virginia Ophthalmology Associates

Alla Y. Hynes, MD         Background | Publications
Eye Association of Winchester

Julia Malalis, MD

Virginia Eye Center, PC

Would you recommend any of these? Or should I plan to travel to MD (NIH, Johns Hopkins) or DC or elsewhere?

Thanks so much...So glad to have found this forum!
