News and Events
February is Macular Degeneration/Low Vision Awareness Month
“Many adults put off getting annual eye exams,” Dr. Katz said. “This is the only way eye doctors can monitor for any changes in a patient’s vision, which can truly mean the difference between preserving sight and perhaps even losing it.”
A simple test of your vision will alert you to any changes that may indicate a problem with macular degeneration or a worsening of your condition. This common test is known as the Amsler Grid. The Amsler Grid looks like graph paper, with dark lines forming a square grid. Some versions have white lines on a dark background. Download a free copy of the Amsler Grid, or contact us to send one in the mail.
Florida Eye Is Growing Again!
Florida Eye is pleased to welcome Joseph T. Nezgoda, M.D., M.B.A., a Vitreoretinal Surgical Specialist, to the practice this August. Dr. Nezgoda has a special interest in Macular Degeneration, Diabetic Eye Disease and surgical treatment of the retina and ocular inflammation. Dr. Nezgoda decided to relocate from The University of California to South Florida to be closer to family.
As for deciding to join Florida Eye, Dr. Nezgoda said that although he was fortunate enough to receive several offers from area practices, Florida Eye felt like the best fit for him. “I think your standards are often set by those you work with, and I wanted to be in an environment of excellence and among doctors that I would trust with my family.” The doctors and staff at Florida Eye are very excited about Dr. Nezgoda’s arrival in August. An email will be sent out in the next few weeks when we have added his bio to our site, so you’ll be able to learn more about this dynamic doctor.
