Eye Exam Approaching? Here’s What You Need to Know

Do you have an eye exam coming up? There are several things you should inform us of to help make sure your exam is a worthwhile one.

It is essential to keep us updated on any recent health conditions or problems you may have observed, as your eyes can be affected by changes in your body. What are the sorts of things we'd need to be informed of? Here are some examples: pregnancy, diabetes, high blood pressure, and even something which may seem trivial, like allergies.

The more we know about your lifestyle, the better. For example, do you drink or smoke? Tell us what you're using your eyes for. Do you work at a computer a lot? Knowing these facts can make it easier for us to determine the best solution for your vision.

And if there are any eye diseases effecting members of your family, you should tell us, because a few of them are hereditary. Having an understanding of which eye diseases you might be susceptible to can make it simpler for us to look out for and monitor any developing signs or symptoms.

Warning signs include things like double vision, seeing spots or flashes of light, and blurriness. If you start to experience any of these, come see us as soon as you're able to. With the information we have about your history, coupled with our expertise, we'll discover what's behind the symptom, and suggest the most appropriate treatment plan. It's also useful for us if you take your most recent glasses along to your exam. Glasses provide important information, even if you're a contact lens wearer. We look forward to working with you, and making sure you get better vision.
