Give Your Eyes the Care They Deserve

Eye Disease Management Includes:

  • Comprehensive eye exam

    Comprehensive eye exams are critical in catching sight-robbing eye diseases that typically don’t show early symptoms.

  • Diagnostic screening

    Certain changes in your eyes can indicate eye conditions. Our optometrists can diagnose the disease and determine the cause of these changes.

  • Treatments and surgeries

    We provide a wide range of treatments, including prescription eye drops and other medication. If needed, we'll refer you to the right specialist for eye surgery.

  • After care and follow-up

    We provide follow-up exams and after-care treatments to help you manage your symptoms and safeguard your vision.


What Are the 4 Most Common Eye Diseases?

  • Diabetic Retinopathy

    If you have diabetes, you should be aware of the risk of diabetic retinopathy. Elevated blood sugar can cause blood vessels in the eye to become inflamed or swell. In the early stages, you may not notice symptoms, but advanced diabetic retinopathy can cause blurred vision or eye inflammation.

    Diabetic retinopathy treatment includes:

    • Prescription medication
    • Laser surgeries
    • Anti-VEGF and steroid injections
    • Vitrectomy
  • Glaucoma

    Glaucoma is a leading cause of blindness and often doesn’t show early symptoms. High pressure inside the eye causes glaucoma, and the purpose of glaucoma management is to reduce intraocular pressure.

    Glaucoma treatments include:

    • Prescription eye drops or medications
    • Laser procedures
    • Filtration surgery
    • Drainage tubes
    • Minimally invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS)
  • Cataracts

    Cataracts are cloudy formations on the eye lens. They can make your vision blurry and distorted. To restore normal vision, an optometrist will recommend cataract surgery, which involves replacing the cloudy lens with an artificial intraocular lens.

  • Macular Degeneration

    Macular degeneration, or AMD, occurs when the macula or the central part of the retina deteriorates. This results in blurred and distorted vision.

    There are two types of AMD: Dry AMD and Wet AMD.

    Although there isn’t a treatment for dry AMD, lifestyle changes and specific supplements can help prevent further vision deterioration.

    Wet AMD treatments include:

    • Photodynamic therapy
    • Anti-VEGF injections
    • Laser photocoagulation

Distorted or Blurred Vision? Have a family history of serious eye diseases?

Schedule an eye exam at Primary EyeCare - Spring Hill in Spring Hill. Early diagnosis and treatment can help preserve eye health and prevent vision loss.

Great experience for my daughter and I!
- Feb. 06, 2024
I started going here acouple years ago for my routine eye appointments when we moved to the area. Al... l the Doctors have been amazing, the front office staff is always friendly and helpful. About a month ago I got a very bad eye infection and lucky came in early and caught it before it got even worse. Dr. Engle treated me and was beyond amazing. He was very knowledgeable on how to get it healed as quick as posisble. It was during the snow storm so I had to miss some appoinntments but Dr. Engle made sure I had a way to contact him incase it got worse or I had any questions or concerns during that time. This office is great and they show that they really care about their patients.

The employees at Primary Eye, on Main St, Sp Hill, are so nice and fun (Dr Engle, Crystal, Sam & Mi... ke). Everyone that works there is very personable and knowledgeable. Also- they have different, new technology(since my last exam) for testing your eyes. It was very interesting * For your initial appointment, definitely arrive 15 minutes early, as they ask. I was running late at work & arrived late. It took a while to complete the paperwork (on a tablet). Mike & Sam were there past 5:00 -my fault. I truly recommend this provider 100%. I made an appointment for my 80 year old mother also. Dr Engle is par with Davis (mine) & EyeMed (my mother’s). Of course, always double check with your insurance company before scheduling your appointment. Thank you! Cathy P
