To all those with eye examinations coming up in the near future, can we have your attention please? If you want to make sure your exam is effective and productive, there are several bits of information we will need from you.
Because vision can be affected by seemingly unrelated changes to your health, you'll need to let us know about any recent changes you may have recently become aware of. A few examples of conditions you should let us know of are allergies, pregnancy, high blood pressure, diabetes or any other serious condition.
Habits like drinking or smoking can have a poor effect on your eyes, so if these are parts of your lifestyle, tell us about it. Additionally, 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? Knowing these details will really make it simpler for us to figure out the solution to your vision problems.
As several eye-related conditions are genetic, it is important that you let us know about any of them in your immediate family, especially macular degeneration or glaucoma. Being aware of the conditions you might be vulnerable to can help us to keep an eye out for and keep track of any warning signs.
Come see us if you observe any changes to your sight including double vision, blurriness, flashes of light or spots. We'll then do our very best to discover what's causing the symptom, and suggest the best possible way to treat it. Do remember to take your most recent pair of glasses with you to the exam. Glasses give us information 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 most efficient way to resolve whatever issue you may be experiencing!
