Frantz EyeCare Offers A Full Range Of Eye Care Services To Our Southwest Florida Patients
Our practice involves primary eye care with a significant emphasis on cataract and refractive surgery, including LASIK, and the medical management of glaucoma and other eye diseases. We believe that it all begins with a comprehensive eye exam.
The Importance of Complete Eye Examinations to Your Overall Health
Many health problems can be diagnosed in their early stages through a comprehensive medical eye examination. Some eye disorders, such as glaucoma, begin without any symptoms at all. Sometimes even minor symptoms, such as blurry or cloudy vision, dry eyes or eye discoloration, can signal a physical illness not related to the eye, such as diabetes or high blood pressure. We encourage you to have routine eye exams to help you maintain your overall health.
A thorough eye exam requires an evaluation of the “back of the eye” which requires us to dilate your eyes. The dilating drops may cause temporary blurred vision or light sensitivity; therefore, you should bring a pair of sunglasses and someone to drive you home after your appointment.
