Dr. Alan Sikes is, by far, the best optometrist in the Washington, D.C. area. He has 40+ years of experience diagnosing and assessing vision-related problems and provides excellent service and prices. The big box chain stores can't even compare with the knowledge and skills Dr. Sikes can provide for you and your family. He is especially talented in assisting children with sight/vision-related reading and learning difficulties.

Dr. Sikes has been our family eye care doctor since the 80's. He corrected my brother's vision problems, and I've always had the benefit of his vision training practices despite being lucky with decent vision. I have been to eye care locations recommended by my insurance, and realized how spoiled I was by Dr. Sikes' services. While you will be on your own with filing your insurance claims, Dr. Sikes prices are extremely reasonable consider the level of care you.


Dr. Alan Sikes received his B.A. from Edinboro State College, PA and his B.S., O.D. from Pennsylvania College of Optometry.      

Dr. Sikes began his career as an Army optometrist at Fort Belvoir, VA from 1971-1973.  He has taken and continues to participate in post graduate courses, seminars, etc. in his chosen field of Developmental Behavioral Optometry.

He took courses with a naturopath and studied iridology, reflexology, and many other different holistic “ology's.”  He is a member of Edgar Cayce's A.R.E., Study Soul Craft and Kryon's Channeled Messages, and other Spiritual sources. He is versed extensively on nutrition and applies it to vision and whole body enhancement for all his patients. He believes in alternative-complimentary treatments of the vision system, when applicable. 

He presents many papers on Vision Training Therapy (VTT) techniques and expands upon current VTT procedures at VTT Symposiums. Some of them are listed under presentations. He was appointed for a one year to the Virginia Optometric Association Task Force on Learning Disabilities.
