Pikeville Medical Center (PMC) provides comprehensive eye care for adults and children by licensed optometrists and board-certified ophthalmologists. Our staff offers eye care ranging from routine eye exams to the diagnosis, care and surgical treatment of eye disorders such as glaucoma and cataracts.

The Optometry Clinic provides primary eye care which encompasses the diagnosis and treatment of eye conditions. The optometrists conduct vision exams, school eye exams, diabetic eye exams, foreign body removal, stye treatment, glaucoma evaluation, cataract evaluation and laser treatment.

Primary eye care exams include testing for visual acuity which evaluates how clearly each eye sees, evaluations of depth perception, color vision, eye muscle movements, peripheral or side vision and the way pupils respond to light. Additional testing may be needed based on the results of these tests.

The PMC Optometry Clinic does not sell glasses. Patients will receive a prescription for glasses which can be filled at any optical store.

Clinic hours are Monday and Thursday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Wednesday from 8 a.m. to noon.

Pediatric Eye Exams are offered on Wednesdays from 8 a.m. to noon and Thursdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The PMC Optometry Clinic is operated in association with the Kentucky School of Optometry located at the University of Pikeville.

Adult and Pediatric Annual Exams

Lesions – Any abnormal damage or change in the tissue of an organism, usually caused by disease or trauma

Stye Treatment – A red, painful lump near the edge of your eyelid that may look like a boil or a pimple; sties are often filled with pus and usually form on the outside of your eyelid; but sometimes can form on the inner part of your eyelid; in most cases, a sty will begin to disappear on its own in a couple days

Glaucoma – A condition that can damage the optic nerve when pressure slowly builds in the eye

Chalazions – A bacterial infection of the oil glands just behind the base of the eyelashes

Cataract – A cataract scatters and blocks the light as it passes through the lens, preventing a sharply defined image from reaching your retina and as a result, your vision becomes blurred; cataracts generally develop in both eyes, but not evenly
