What to Ask

It’s essential, too, that you make the most out of your exams. We’ve included a range of questions for you to ask during your next eye exam, or if necessary, before your exam to avoid any miscommunication. We hope you find these helpful and that the information contained in our EyeGlass Guide 2.0 will help to facilitate a comprehensive and informed dialogue between you and your eye care professional.

Questions to ask before your eye exam…

  • Do you accept my insurance plan’s vision coverage?
  • Is payment required at the time of service?
  • What will my eye exam entail?
  • How long should I expect to be there?
  • Will my pupils be dilated?
  • What should I bring with me?

Questions to ask at your eye exam…

  • Given my age, eye condition and other risk factors, how often should I have my eyes examined?
  • At what age should I start to schedule my children for regular eye exams?
  • What lens designs and options are a good fit for me?
  • Can my glasses block UV rays?
  • Do all sunglasses protect my eyes from UV rays?
  • What are photochromic lenses and are they a good option for me?

Things to remember

It’s always a good idea to bring any of the following (if available) to your eye exam appointment:

  • Your insurance card/insurance information
  • A list of all medications, vitamins and other supplements you are taking
  • All pairs of prescription glasses you currently own
  • If you have it, a copy of your latest eyeglass prescription
  • Information on frames you like, or lenses you’ve researched

Don’t forget, if participating in a flexible spending account program, you may be able to use the account to pay for portions of your eye care not covered directly by your insurance plan.

A Message to Our Patients

TSO Woodlands will continue to follow health and safety guidelines recommended by the CDC by requiring all patients and staff to continue wearing a mask when entering our office for any service. As a healthcare provider we want to ensure the safety of all of our patients and staff. If you arrive without a mask for your appointment, we will be happy to provide one for you.

We understand there are strong feelings on the mask debate and thank you for your cooperation, understanding, and patience as we navigate this challenging time. We look forward to seeing our patients back in the clinic again and strive to provide excellence in eye care while maintaining your health and safety as our highest priority.

Warmest Regards,
Dr. Young and TSO Woodlands Staff
