Eye Care Services Leesburg, Eustis, Clermont
As our name implies, Total Eye Care Center offers Floridians comprehensive services to prevent, diagnose, and treat common eye disorders. These services, ranging from routine eye examinations to cataract surgery, are customized to suit your requirements and restore your vision. Since our practice’s inception, our doctors and staff members have devoted themselves to meeting the diverse needs of our patients with the latest technology and techniques. Each of our procedures is performed in a state-of-the-art surgical center by one of Lake County’s finest ophthalmologists.
Cataracts are a clouding of the eye's natural lens, usually occurring as a result of the natural aging process. Typical symptoms of a cataract include reduced night vision, impaired depth perception, dull color perception, blurred vision, and frequent eyeglass prescription changes. If these symptoms begin to interfere with your lifestyle and the things you enjoy doing, you may consider cataract surgery to remove the cloudy lens and restore vision.
Total Eye Care Center performs no-stitch, no-shot, no-patch cataract surgery to remove the cataract; patients will receive an intraocular lens implant to replace the eye's natural lens. Our surgeons will discuss the benefits, risks and complications, and the cost of cataract surgery with potential patients during a consultation.
Macular degeneration is a common cause of visual deterioration among adults in the United States. A weakening of the center of the retina (the macula), macular degeneration gradually causes central vision to blur. Neither the more common form, dry macular degeneration, nor its more serious counterpart, wet macular degeneration, can be cured. However, if the disease is caught in its early stages, our doctors will refer you to a retina specialist, who may be able to treat it with injection, laser, or surgical therapy.
Common types of glaucoma are marked by two features: damage to the optic nerve in the back of the eye, and loss of the visual field (often described as "peripheral vision"). It has generally been accepted that once the optic nerve is damaged, this damage is irreversible. Glaucoma treatment has always been aimed at trying to prevent further damage, and includes methods such as oral medication, eye drops, and laser surgery.
Individuals with type I or II diabetes are vulnerable to diabetic retinopathy, a degenerative eye disorder that can result in significant loss of vision. Diabetes causes damage to the blood vessels in the retina, resulting in poor blood flow to the back of the eye. In some cases, new and fragile blood vessels will grow to replace the dead ones, but they break easily and can flood the eye with blood. The result is rapid, significant loss of vision or even blindness. It is crucial to catch diabetic retinopathy in its early stages in order to prevent the disease from progressing.
Eyelid Plastic Surgery
Often performed for cosmetic reasons, eyelid plastic surgery (clinically known as blepharoplasty) can improve vision in cases in which excess skin or fat deposits are obscuring a patient’s line of sight or upper field of vision. Upper eyelid surgery targets excess skin that sags above the eye; lower eyelid surgery removes fat deposits which can build up under the eye and cause bags and puffiness. Eyelid surgery is also recommended for reconstructive purposes; if skin cancer lesions have recently been removed, eyelid surgery will improve appearance and function for those less fortunate.
Routine Eye Examinations
The diseases and disorders described above are each diagnosed during a complete eye examination. Routine, comprehensive eye examinations are critical to maintaining healthy eyes, ensuring prescriptions for corrective lenses remain accurate, and detecting early signs of disease. Quick and painless, an eye examination is also a convenient opportunity to update your prescriptions and even select a new pair of eyeglass frames in our optical department.
Persons with what our experts refer to as “low vision” have a visual impairment which is severe enough to limit their ability to complete many daily activities, but which still allows some usable vision. Low vision rehabilitation is directed at optimizing functional capabilities and quality of life. Rehabilitation is a multi-faceted process involving the assessment of visual capabilities and the evaluation of functional performance within the context of lifestyle, attitudes, and psychological well-being. Rehabilitation goals are defined in terms of what matters most in a person's life, and attempts are made to solve functional problems through adaptive options and coping strategies.
Our three locations offer optical services departments with substantial inventories of designer frames, as well as lenses and contact lenses to suit your optical needs. Our knowledgeable, licensed opticians will help you select frames that compliment the face and suit personal style - coupled with lenses to match your prescription.
