FOA Fort Meade

Family Optometric Associates is locally owned and operated serving the Fort Meade, Maryland area since 2015. We are located within the Fort Meade AAFES Exchange.

When you visit us for an eye exam, our optometrists, Dr. Steven Chado and Dr. Stacey Tullis will evaluate your visual health. This includes general eye examinations for correction of farsightedness, nearsightedness, presbyopia, and astigmatism. The doctors also diagnose, manage and treat diseases and disorders of the visual system. Thorough examinations of the external and internal structure of the eyes are performed to evaluate for many ocular conditions such as glaucoma, cataracts, retinal disorders, and systemic disorders including hypertension and diabetes.
