General Eye Care

At Pinehurst Surgical Clinic, we consider the whole body, not just the eyes, when caring for our patients. The eyes may be windows to the soul, but they can also be windows to the body, allowing the trained professional to detect and diagnose many vascular, inflammatory, and viral diseases during a comprehensive eye exam. For example, diabetes, hypertension, lupus, and herpes can potentially affect the eyes. At Pinehurst Surgical, our providers are trained to screen for these and other diseases, in addition to common eye disorders, during standard eye exams. If we find that a non-ocular disease is present, you will be referred to the appropriate medical professional for prompt attention.

Some conditions that can be found on eye exam:

  • Diabetes
  • Dry Eye Syndrome
  • Herpes Simplex
  • Herpes Zoster (Shingles)
  • Hypertension
  • Lupus
  • Macular Degeneration
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Sarcoidosis
  • Sickle Cell Anemia
  • Thyroid Disorders
  • Tuberculosis
