Seeing the person behind the eyes.

There are two very important facts you should know about Fort Myers Eye Associates and Dr. Dalesio:

Dr. Dalesio performs the most comprehensive eye exams for adults and children.

Dr. Dalesio and his staff are dedicated to keeping your eyes healthy and, if necessary, making corrections in your vision to assure the best possible eyesight.

An eye examination with Dr. Dalesio goes far beyond where most optometrists go. In addition to tests for eye diseases like glaucoma or retinal disease, Dr. Dalesio tests for systemic diseases like high blood pressure and diabetes that can affect the healthiness of the eyes before showing other symptoms. In younger paients, there may be conditions like undiagnosed lazy eyes, eye turns or occular disease that can affect the patient’s vision, health and well being for the rest of his or her lives.

Dr Dalesio is one of Southwest Florida’s top optometrists specializing in learning-related vision problems.

Dr. David Dalesio is a Behavioral Optometrist specializing in the diagnosis and treatment of learning-related vision problems. Many school-aged children who struggle at school may actually have one or more of these learning-related vision problems. Most of these children actually have “perfect” 20/20 vision. Even if they have had a complete eye exam, children with vision-related learning disabilities would not be diagnosed because most optometrists and ophthalmologists do not specialize in this area, so they do not test for these problems.

Meet The Optometrist

  • Dr. Dalesio
    “When I made the decision to become a Doctor of Optometry, I knew it would take a lifetime of commitment to keep pace with diagnostic and treatment innovation. I stay active in professional associations in order to benefit from the experience and knowledge of my peers. I also exceed the number of hours required for continuing education every year — for two reasons: I’m still fascinated by the eye and behavioral vision disorders, and what I learn might make the difference in sight enhancement, quality of life, or preservation of vision for one of my patients.” Doctorate: Doctor of Optometry, New England College of Optometry, Beta Sigma Kappa Honor Fraternity
, Graduate: B.A., State University of New York at Oswego (double major in Psychology and Biology/Pre-Medicine) Postgraduate Training Includes: Fellowship in the College of Optometrists in Vision Development (FCOVD), Long-term vision care, specialty in learning-related vision analysis and treatment, specialty contact lenses, sports eyewear, glaucoma treatment, and many others
