Here at The Optical Shop, we are proud to assist our patients with eye disease treatment in Petersburg, FL and the surrounding communities.
Some common eye diseases are glaucoma, macular degeneration, and blepharitis. Recent innovations have made it easier to treat patients who are suffering from these diseases.
If you ever feel as though you are having vision problems, you will want to book an appointment with your eye doctor right away. Your eyes are a critical part of your daily life, and it is important that you take care of them.
Once you have an appointment booked, we will take you through a variety of tests to determine what the issue is. We will also ask you a series of questions about your medical history as some diseases can be hereditary.
Since there are so many different diseases which affect the eyes, each treatment plan will be different. Treatment can be as simple as changing the type of contact lens you use or as complex as corrective surgery.
In most cases, reversing damage is not possible; however, an eye doctor is able to slow down the progression of the problem. You can aid in keeping your eyes healthy through some lifestyle changes such as protecting your eyes from sunlight, eating a balanced diet, and quitting smoking.
Our entire staff is dedicated to your eye health. We have the experience and equipment necessary to diagnose and treat nearly all eye disease and are here to help you every step of the way. If you ever have any questions, we are always happy to answer them. We never want you to feel confused or overwhelmed.
