True twenty foot exam lanes and computerized exam equipment help Drs. David and Lisa Woody to determine the most accurate eyeglass prescriptions possible.
Our office features the largest eyewear selection in Nelson County with over 1500 frames on display. We’ll help you to look and see your best!

Comprehensive Contact Lens Care

We specialize in difficult to fit patients. Bifocal contacts, lenses to change eye color, astigmatism correcting lenses, disposables - we fit them all.
As the region’s only certified designer for vision correcting and medically necessary WAVE contact lenses, we can manage almost any vision problem. We can even use lenses to change the shape of the eye to reversibly reduce nearsightedness. Come and see what contacts can do for you!

“I changed to Dr. Woody because I could not see to read out of my last 2 pair of glasses when I got them from another doctor, even after going back each time. My visits at Dr. Woody’s were great, and I can see really well to read (and for everything else) out of my new glasses. Dr. Woody got it right the first time!!”
