Primary Medical Eyecare
Your health is our priority!
Having healthy eyes is essential for enjoying life to the fullest! Regular eye checkups are important to detect and treat problems such as cataracts, glaucoma, and macular degeneration before they lead to vision loss or blindness. Early diagnosis and treatment of eye conditions can help maintain clear vision and prevent serious damage.
At our practice, we understand how important it is for you to have good vision. Our experienced professionals use the latest technology and techniques to provide comprehensive eye care services so that you can enjoy life more fully with healthy eyes.
At Singleton Eye Clinic, our team of experienced eye care experts is committed to providing the best possible care for our patients. We use the most advanced methods and technology to diagnose and treat cataracts. Our team of seasoned surgeons, led by Dr. Singleton, has decades of experience in co-managing cataract surgeries for a wide range of patients.
Cataract surgery is a safe procedure that can dramatically improve vision without any long-term complications or issues. The cloudy lenses are removed and replaced with a new artificial lens that is both permanent and trouble-free. After just a short time, you will be able to experience near-normal vision! We understand that each patient’s needs are different, so we customize our treatment plans accordingly to ensure the best outcomes for everyone we serve. Our commitment to providing quality care has made us one of the top providers of eye care services in South Carolina since 1977!

At the Singleton Eye Clinic, Dr. Singleton and his staff are dedicated to providing comprehensive care for the early detection and treatment of glaucoma. Glaucoma is an eye disease that usually begins after the age of 40 and is one of the leading causes of blindness worldwide. It has no symptoms and can cause undetectable peripheral vision loss as well as permanent damage to the optic nerve.
At the Singleton Eye Clinic, a glaucoma examination is a standard part of any regular eye examination. If detected, there are many modern treatment options available. These treatments range from eye drops to laser therapy or even surgery, depending on the severity of the case and individual preference. All treatments aim to reduce intraocular pressure which helps protect against further vision loss and slowed progression of glaucomatous damage. With access to advanced diagnostic technology, such as ocular coherence tomography (OCT), Dr. Singleton and his staff at the Singleton Eye Clinic are committed to offering their patients the best possible care for glaucoma diagnosis, management, and prevention.

At Singleton Eye Clinic, we recognize the connection between visible and invisible light rays, as well as nutritional factors, in contributing to age-related macular degeneration (AMD). Our team of experienced ophthalmologists is trained and equipped to recognize the symptoms of AMD early on, allowing us to administer preventative treatments such as nutritional supplementation, laser treatments or other therapies. We work collaboratively with our patients to ensure they receive the best possible care and treatment specific to their individual needs.
Our specialized services also include providing regular checkups and evaluations on an annual basis. This allows us to monitor any changes in your vision over time due to aging or other factors that may lead to AMD. In fact, early detection is key for successful treatment and slowing down the progression of this disorder. We use advanced technology and up-to-date equipment such as retinal scans, fundus photography, optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging and fluorescein angiography tests to accurately diagnose AMD so that appropriate treatment can be given quickly and effectively.

Diabetic Eye Disease
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, an estimated 34.2 million people in the United States have diabetes. This condition is caused by a combination of genetics and lifestyle factors. Diabetes is a serious disorder that can lead to many other health issues, one of which is diabetic eye disease. Patients who are newly diagnosed with this disorder often already have significant diabetic eye disease present in their eyes. As such, regular eye exams become increasingly important for diabetics since ophthalmologists like Dr. Singleton may be able to detect diabetes or other associated conditions during a routine examination of the eyes.
Diabetic retinopathy is one of the most common forms of diabetic eye disease, and it causes damage to the tiny blood vessels inside the retina which can lead to vision impairment or blindness if left untreated. It typically appears in both eyes and can progress slowly over time; however, early detection is key for reducing any potential vision loss due to this condition. Other complications from diabetes that appear in the eyes include cataracts, glaucoma, dry eye syndrome, macular edema, and ocular myasthenia gravis. By performing comprehensive examinations on patients with diabetes or those who are at risk for developing it, Dr. Singleton can help diagnose these diseases early before they cause irreversible damage.
