Tullahoma Vision Associates believes in comprehensive care for patients of all ages. As primary eyecare providers, we can treat and manage almost any problem involving the eyes or vision. Dr. McBride and Dr. Blanks are therapeutically certified in the treatment and management of ocular disease in addition to providing expert vision care. We treat eye infections (including an in-office treatment for highly contagious “pink eye”), eye injuries, foreign bodies, glaucoma, eye allergies, inflammations of the eye, dry eye, styes, and many other eye diseases. We also manage conditions such as cataracts, diabetic eye disease, optic neuropathy, macular degeneration, retinal vascular disease, keratoconus, thyroid eye disease, floaters, corneal dystrophies, and many others. Our office is equipped with state-of-the-art diagnostic instruments, some unique to the region, to assist our doctors in providing the finest care.
Comprehensive Eye Care
When our patients require surgical or more specialized evaluation and treatment, we work closely with the finest sub-specialists in Tennessee and the southeast U.S. This is called “co-management” and helps ensure efficient delivery of care without needless duplication of services. In co-management, each doctor does what he or she does best in the care of the patient and communicates continually with the other doctors involved. This way, our patients receive the very best care while helping to keep health care costs down.
We work with leading sub-specialists in cataract surgery, retina, oculoplastics, pediatric ophthalmology, cornea, neuro-ophthalmology, facial rejuvenation, ocular oncology, low vision, and vision therapy. We consider these specialists to be an extension of our practice. Therefore, we are careful to choose professionals who share the same commitment to excellent patient care and service that we do. For example, for many years we have co-managed patients with SouthEast Eye Specialists for cataract surgery, laser procedures, excision of lid lesions, advanced glaucoma treatment, LASIK, strabismus, and other eye surgeries. They see patients and perform surgery in Tullahoma and other surrounding cities. We truly feel they are the very best in the state for these services.
You can feel confident that you will receive the best care for all of your eye and vision care needs when you come to Tullahoma Vision Associates.
