When Was Your Last Eye Exam?

If you don’t remember your last eye exam, you may be passing up your best chance of protecting your eyesight. A thorough examination by an optometrist or ophthalmologist is the only way to ensure that your eyes are healthy.

A comprehensive eye exam involves an evaluation of all of your eye’s structures. It also requires that your pupils be dilated, enabling your eye doctor to view the inside of your eye. Once dilated, we examine each eye with a special magnifying lens that provides a clear view of important tissues at the back of the eye, including the retina, the macula, and the optic nerve.

There are many conditions that threaten your eyesight, such as cataracts, glaucoma or macular degeneration, but show few symptoms in their early stages. Catching them early can result in successful treatment. Even if you think your eyes are healthy, regular eye exams are important for detecting and treating problems before they lead to vision loss.

Your eye health is important to us at Elmquist Eye Group. We offer the best eye care in Southwest Florida and will provide you with individualized care and help prevent vision loss. Schedule an eye exam today by calling us at (239) 936-2020.
