Do you have an eye exam fast approaching? In order for us to guarantee that your exam is thorough and worthwhile, there are a number of facts we will need from you.
Because eyes can be affected by seemingly unrelated health conditions, it's pretty important that you inform us of any changes you might be aware of. This includes allergies, pregnancy, high blood pressure, diabetes or any other serious illness.
The more we know about your lifestyle, the better. For example, do you drink or smoke? In addition, we'll examine what you're actually using your eyes for. Does your job take place in a factory, or do you work in an office? Being aware of these details can help us to determine the solution to your vision problems.
Because several eye conditions are hereditary, it is vital that you let us know if any of your immediate relatives have any of them, especially macular degeneration or glaucoma. It's a great deal less complicated to keep an eye out for symptoms when we already know which conditions you may be vulnerable to.
Let us know if you are aware of anything odd about your eyes and vision including double vision, blurriness, flashes of light or spots. With the information we have about your history, coupled with our expertise, we'll figure out what's behind the symptom, and suggest the most appropriate treatment. Don't forget to bring your newest pair of glasses along to the exam. Glasses tell us important things about your eyes, even if you're a contact lens wearer. So don't forget all this when you come for your exam. Together, we'll figure out the best way to rectify whatever issue you may be experiencing!
