How can you make your next eye exam even more productive? If you want to guarantee that your exam is effective and worthwhile, there are several things we will need from you.
It's of great importance to keep us updated on any present health conditions or problems you are experiencing as eyes are often affected by changes in your body. Some examples of conditions you should let us know of are diabetes, pregnancy, high blood pressure or allergies.
Habits like drinking or smoking can have a negative effect on vision, so if these are parts of your lifestyle, let us know. Tell us how you use your eyes. Are you a craftsman who spends time focusing on fine details? Being informed of this information can make it easier for us to choose the best thing for your vision.
As a number of eye-related diseases are genetic, it is vital that you let us know if anyone in your family has any of them, especially macular degeneration or glaucoma. It's a great deal less complicated to look out for warning signs when we're informed about which conditions you're susceptible to.
Come see us if you are aware of any changes to your vision including blurriness, fatigue, flashes of light, spots and double vision. We'll then do our very best to discover the root of the condition, and figure out the best possible treatment plan. It's also useful for us if you take your most recent glasses along to your exam. They give valuable information, even if you're a contact lens wearer. We look forward to seeing you, and making sure you get your best possible vision.
