At Lowcountry Eye Care, our dedicated doctors are passionate about keeping your eyes healthy and your vision clear for life. That means focusing on preventive care — using our expertise and advanced diagnostics to catch the first signs of eye diseases, and to customize treatment plans to preserve your eyesight.

How Do You Know If You Have an Eye Disease?

Many eye diseases don’t present obvious symptoms at first, if at all, which makes early detection an essential part of preserving your vision. Luckily, our comprehensive eye exams can help you catch and manage eye diseases long before you notice them. Using state-of-the-art technology, we can get a total picture of your eyes, inside and out, and respond quickly to any concerns with personalized care.

Detect Eye Diseases Earlier! Book An Eye Exam Today!

The best way to detect eye diseases earlier is to get routine eye exams. Let us help you be on top of maintaining your eye health!

Eye Disease Management We Specialize In

Our skilled team thoroughly screens for all kinds of eye diseases, from special conditions such as diabetic retinopathy and glaucoma, to conditions that develop as you get older like age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and cataracts. If we do detect any of these eye diseases, we’ll explore your treatment options to find the ones that provide the most protection against vision loss — and work best with your lifestyle and preferences.

Keratoconus

Keratoconus occurs when your cornea — the clear, normally round outer layer of your eye — thins and bulges out into a cone-like shape. This results in blurry or distorted eyesight, sensitivity to light and glare, the need for frequent changes to your eyewear prescription, and sudden worsening of your vision. In its early stages, we can usually fit you with glasses or specialty contacts, like scleral lenses, to correct your vision. As the condition progresses, we may recommend surgery to restore your sight.

Diabetic Eye Care

Diabetes affects your entire body, and high blood sugar can be especially devasting to your eyes if left unmonitored or untreated. Our experienced doctors look for early signs of vision-threatening complications, like diabetic retinopathy or macular edema, using our leading-edge Optos and Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) imaging. We’ll focus on preserving your vision so you can focus on living well with diabetes.

Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD)

Age-related macular degeneration, or AMD, occurs when the macula — the center of our retina, which translates what we see for the brain — breaks down as you get older. This can lead to central vision loss, degraded color and detail vision, and more. You may not notice early signs of AMD, but our doctors will! We use cutting-edge technology like our Optos retinal imager to detect AMD early and fortify your macula for years of healthy sight.

Glaucoma

Early detection is the key to protecting your vision from glaucoma, the “silent thief of sight.” It develops when your eye’s intraocular pressure (IOP) builds up and damages the optic nerve, which sends what you see to the brain. This causes permanent vision loss. During a comprehensive exam, we’ll precisely measure your IOP with the iCare tonometer and scan your eyes using OCT imaging. No two cases of glaucoma are the same, so we’ll customize our solutions to whatever is causing your IOP increase.

Cataracts

Cataracts are an extremely common condition that affect more than half of older adults. They develop when the eye’s natural lens begins to cloud with age, which obstructs your vision more and more over time. We’ll routinely check for cataracts during a comprehensive exam and let you know if they appear so we can help you manage your vision with specialty eyewear. And if you’re interested in a more permanent solution, we can direct you towards cataract surgery when you’re ready.
