For most day-to-day eye and vision care needs, an optometrist is generally your best choice. Optometrists conduct most routine eye examinations and refractions, and regularly treat problems that affect the surface of the eye, such as allergies, irritations, eyestrain, and conjunctivitis.
Optometrists can also diagnose and treat a broad range of medical conditions that impact the eye, including glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration, retinal disease and ocular disorders associated with diabetes and high blood pressure. They are licensed to prescribe medications, counsel patients about surgical and non-surgical treatment options, and perform certain surgical procedures.

Family Eye Exams
Many eye and vision problems have no symptoms, so comprehensive eye exams are an important part of maintaining healthy vision. Even if you think your eyes are healthy, they are important for detecting and treating problems before they lead to vision loss.
Your doctor will dilate your eyes with drops to make the pupils bigger, for a closer look into your eyes, and check for common conditions like myopia and astigmatism, as well as complex conditions, like glaucoma and macular degeneration. He or she will also look for any signs of eye disease that could cause problems in the future, and determine your prescription for eyeglasses or contact lenses, if you need them.
The highly regarded optometrists at Elmquist Eye Group in Cape Coral provide eye exams, eyeglasses, contact lenses, and an unparalleled level of care using state-of-the-art technology and specialized equipment. Schedule an appointment today by calling us at (239) 936-2020.
