Do you have an eye exam fast approaching? If you want to guarantee that your exam is effective and productive, there are a number of bits of information we will need from you.
It's important to let us know about any current health conditions or problems you may have observed, as eyes are often vulnerable to changes in your body. 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.
Habits like drinking or smoking can have a poor effect on eyesight, so if these are parts of your lifestyle, tell us about it. Additionally, we'll examine the way you use your eyes. Are you a student who does a lot of reading? Being informed of these facts will really make it simpler for us to choose the best thing for your sight.
And if there are any eye diseases that effect anyone in your family, you should let us know, because a few of them are hereditary. It's much more efficient to look out for warning signs when we already know what you're vulnerable to.
Some symptoms include things like double vision, seeing spots or flashes of light, and blurriness. 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 get to bottom of what's behind the symptom, and suggest the most appropriate treatment plan. It's also useful for us if you bring your glasses along to your appointment. Glasses give important information, even if you wear contact lenses. We look forward to working with you, and making sure you get better vision.
