I'm a 58-year-old RN. I want the best there is in SW Florida for my father and his wet form of Age-related Macular Degeneration. I bring him to Dr. Alexander Eaton in the Fort Myers Office. I've never seen Dr. Eaton smile nor does he have a proclivity to chat; but that isn't important to me nor my father. I am impressed with his Duke education, global activities in staying informed of new treatments and his participation in studies. As with ALL providers please ask if you don't understand.
