A 29-year-old Fairfax resident has opened his own optometry office in Herndon’s Fox Mill Shopping Center.
Beyond Eyecare opened last month at 2539 John Milton Drive. Sami Khaldieh, who has lived in Fairfax since 1996 and attended local schools like Franklin Middle School and Oakton High School. He received his Doctorate of Optometry from Pennsylvania College of Optometry.
He worked for about a year and a half within two different companies before deciding to pursue his dream of opening a practice in his community, a spokesperson for the company told FFXnow.
Khaldieh says that his path to optometry was inevitable as a dry eye and high myopia patient. In his first eye exam, they found his prescription was -4.00. He had seen ten eye care practices in the area. His prescription has since grew to -14.00, and he suffers a subset of Dry Eye Syndrome.
That experience led him to pursue the career.
“My goal is to never let what happened to me happen to anyone else again. My ultimate passion is to make sure my community is receiving the consistent top-tier care that they deserve; that same care I wasn’t able to receive. At Beyond Eyecare, our mission is to go above and beyond the standard of care,” Khaldieh said.
The practice is open on Monday and Wednesday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
