Why eye care is so important
Don’t wait until you have symptoms to come see us at Elmquist. Eye care is important at any age. Most people have healthy eyes until age 40, then between ages 40 and 65, people are more likely to experience age-related eye diseases like macular degeneration or cataracts, which are not a disease but instead a natural part of aging.
We recommend an annual comprehensive eye exam for people aged 20 to 29 and at least two eye exams per year for individuals aged 30 to 39. Eye exams twice per year are important after age 40, and after age 65, we may monitor your eye health more closely.
People of certain ethnicities or family histories are more likely to have certain eye diseases. Other health conditions like diabetes can cause eye health complications like diabetic retinopathy. If you have any of these concerns about genetics or family history, come see our Elmquist ophthalmologists for a consultation.
The Elmquist difference
Our experienced eye doctors offer comprehensive vision examinations at our three convenient locations. We are adept at not only providing a great vision exam, but also in the diagnosis and treatment of eye diseases and conditions. Our offices are equipped with the latest advanced diagnostic technology and we also offer the latest products for vision correction.
Pediatric eye care
Even the youngest members of your family need eye care. When a baby is born, his or her eye control muscles are still developing. Babies who are a few months old begin to develop normal vision. They can distinguish shapes and colors, see at a distance and track objects.
Perhaps you have noticed your baby or child having difficulty with these tasks. The child may not look at you when you speak or may stand very close to the television to see the screen. It is very important for your child to have regular vision exams so that we can determine that the child’s vision is developing properly.
Our vision care team recommends annual eye exams at least in kindergarten if not sooner. Even if your child seems to be seeing normally, it is still a good idea to have regular vision exams.
