Dr. John Dresely was born in North Carolina, but grew up all around the United States and in Germany as the son of a U. S. Marine Corps officer. Northern Virginia was as close to a home base as possible. He attended Ripon College in Wisconsin, before earning his Bachelor of Science and Doctor of Optometry degrees from the Southern California College of Optometry.
In his over 25 year career, Dr. Dresely has practiced in several areas of Virginia, before returning to Northern Virginia several years ago. He has extensive experience in primary eye care, contact lenses and treatment of eye diseases. His special area of interest is children's vision and vision development. He is a member of the American Optometric Association, the Virginia Optometric Association, the Optometric Extension Program Foundation and is a Fellow in the College of Optometrists in Vision Development.
He and his wife reside in Northern Virginia and when he's not in the office, he's probably on the golf course.
