If you’ve got an eye exam scheduled for some time in the near future, there are ways to be extra ready for it. There are a few things you should let us know about to help make sure your exam is a worthwhile one.
Because vision can be affected by seemingly unrelated changes to your health, you’ll need to inform us of any changes you are aware of. What are the sorts of conditions we’d need to know about? 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? In addition, we will look at what you’re actually using your eyes for. Are you a student who does a lot of reading? Being aware of these details will really make it simpler for us to choose your treatment plan.
And if there are any eye diseases that effect anyone in your family, you should tell us, because a number of them are hereditary. It’s easy to understand what it’s a great deal more efficient to look out for symptoms when we already know which conditions you may be susceptible to.
Some symptoms include changes to your vision like seeing double, spots or flashing lights. If you start to experience any of these, give us a call as soon as you’re able to. We’ll then do our very best to figure out the root of the condition, and then recommend the best possible treatment. It’s also good if you bring your glasses along to your appointment. They provide important information, even if you’re a contact lens wearer. Together, we will find out the best way to rectify your vision needs.
