Eye care is important at every age. Elmquist Eye Group offers you the top-rated family eye doctors in Cape Coral, Florida. We recommend at least an annual exam for all of our patients.
Why eye exams are important
Most people are lucky enough to have relatively healthy eyes in young adulthood, but after age 40, many begin to experience vision changes. When you are “of a certain age” you may start to experience obvious deterioration in vision. This could mean you just need a stronger prescription for glasses or contact lenses, but these changes can also signal age-related eye diseases. Why take the chance?
Come in for an eye exam to understand why you are experiencing these vision changes. We need to rule out conditions like macular degeneration or cataracts, which are not a disease but instead a natural part of aging.
For all of these reasons, our expert Elmquist team recommends at least two annual comprehensive eye exams for people age 30 and older. Eye exams twice per year are important after age 40, and after age 65, we may monitor your eye health more closely.
Patients with certain medical conditions like diabetes, high blood pressure or rheumatoid arthritis must take special care with their health because eye complications can occur with all of these other conditions.
The Elmquist Difference
During your appointment, we will discuss how your vision is and whether we have concerns about any diseases. Many of the conditions we find at an early age are common, such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. All of these can be corrected by prescribing eyeglasses or contact lenses, and we also offer vision therapy.
