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 Family Eye Clinic in Midlothian. Early diagnosis and treatment can help preserve eye health and prevent vision loss.


Eye Disease Management FAQs

Do eye problems run in the family?

Yes. Genetics increase our chances of developing diseases that impact vision and eye health.

In fact, over 350 eye diseases are attributed to hereditary factors, including age-related macular degeneration (AMD), cataracts, glaucoma, and retinitis pigmentosa. Learning about your family’s medical history can provide important clues regarding your predisposition to certain eye diseases and vision problems.

How to prevent eye diseases?

Adopting a healthy lifestyle and getting regular eye exams can improve your chances of maintaining clear vision and eye health.

Make sure to:

  • Avoid smoking
  • Maintain healthy blood sugar levels if you have diabetes
  • Wear sunglasses that offer 100 UV protection
  • Have regular eye exams
What are the symptoms of serious eye problems?

Although certain eye diseases show specific symptoms, the signs vary according to the condition. Keep in mind that some eye diseases, such as glaucoma, often don’t show early symptoms—which is why it's important to get regular eye exams.

If you experience any of the following, contact Family Eye Clinic immediately.

  • Blurry or double vision
  • Eye inflammation or eye pain
  • Eye Floaters
  • Eye swelling
  • Blind spots

If you experience any symptoms or have a family history of eye diseases, make sure to schedule a consultation and eye exam at Family Eye Clinic in Midlothian today.

This was my first experience visiting an American eye clinic and I couldn't be more satisfied and su... re that I found the right place. It seems like this business has a bunch of hard-working staff members, and they were all ready to help the moment we walked through those doors. Although I found all staff members that I met today great, I've come to leave a review about one staff member in particular. As a business owner, I appreciate the work ethic and someone that just goes above and beyond. You have a staff member who deserves the reconniction and praise. Skyler the optition tech whom led me and my husband through our eye testing today was a absolute pleasure to work with. she made this first visit probably one of the most enjoyable “medical” visits I’ve ever had, and because of this me and my husband will purchase through this practice. Your business is lucky to have such a knowledgable hard worker and I look forward to now being part of The Family Eye Clinic because of the experience with especially her but so many other great workers on your team. Thank you

Today was our first visit and eye exams with Family Eye Care. Dr. Nhat Nguyen was awesome! He took t... ime to listen and was very thorough explaining everything to us. We then went to meet the Optician Taylor and she was very knowledgeable and gave us the best service. From the check in to check out they were all so friendly. We will definitely be using them from now on.

My first time at Family eye. My experience with Dr. Patel's Care was beyond my belief. She took time... to explain things and did a thorough eye exam..She is very nice and you can tell she truly cares about her patients. I would highly recommend her. My wait time in both the waiting room and the exam room was short, especially for having a same day scheduled appointment! Not to mention how great the service was. The staff provided excellent professional and courteous care.

Today was our first visit to the office, and we will return. We checked in using their mobile link a... nd had no additional paperwork to complete when we got into the office. Shortly after arriving, we were taken into the back by Tatum, Shelby, and Celeste, who provided exceptional medical work-ups. These ladies explained everything clearly and ensured our questions were answered before Dr. Chaaban entered the room. Dr. Chaaban was patient with my daughters and talked to them about their histories. This allowed them to play active roles in their care and placed them accountable. After the visit, Lisa helped my daughter pick the perfect pair of glasses and assisted in getting the best price for the glasses. Thank you the way you treated our family!
