Having come to the U.S. from Colombia as an economic refugee, Dr. J. Alberto Martinez came to America to pursue the American dream. He worked in blue-collar jobs for three years and then served in the United States Navy for six years before finishing college summa cum laude at American University, and being admitted to Georgetown University Medical School. One of the important values Dr. Martinez was raised with in life was to do well and do well for others.
Take the Next Step. Request an Appointment or Consultation.
Dr. Martinez founded Visionary Eye Doctors in 1997 and based on his core value of do well for others, he devoted his life to creating a practice that would provide not only the best eye health care using the latest technology for our patients, but also a practice that was like family and filled with a friendly, patient centered team who genuinely love people and provide a compassionate, loving touch in your journey to incredible vision.
We believe strongly in The Golden Rule.
Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. We strive our best to apply this mantra in our practice in every way possible.
You are our first priority.
Our physicians and doctors don’t travel constantly to different states or cities performing surgery. If our patients ever have concerns, we are here to help them. We all live and work in close proximity to our practices. We have family here and children in local schools. We plan to be here for many, many years to come.
We work hard to earn your trust.
It isn’t to see how many surgeries or procedures we can perform; therefore, we don’t focus on those numbers since it isn’t our priority. Trust that we will inform you of the best options for treating your eyes and your vision. How you see the world truly matters. A lot of us take it for granted, however our doctors do not. Your vision is our passion and our life’s work.
We offer the most advanced technology.
Many make this claim, however we do have one of the most technologically advanced practices in the metro DC area. There is no better laser system for advanced cataract surgery than the CATALYS® system. If there was something better, we would be using it. Recently, we became one of the few centers in the DC area to purchase the new FDA approved Corneal Cross Linking Avedro KXL system for patients with keratoconus. Corneal Cross linking limits the progression of keratoconus, may improve vision and also can prevent corneal transplant in the future. We cover our technology in more detail here.
A multicultural Practice, We’re as diverse as Washington, D.C.
