Do you have an eye exam fast approaching? If you want to guarantee that your exam is effective and productive, there are a few facts we will need from you.
It is important that you keep us updated on any present health conditions or problems you may have recently become aware of, because your eyes can be vulnerable to changes in your body. A couple of examples of conditions we should know of are pregnancy, diabetes, high blood pressure, and even something which may seem trivial, like allergies.
The more we are informed about your lifestyle, the better. For example, are you a smoker? Do you drink? In addition, we will look at what you're actually using your eyes for. Do you work at a computer a lot? Being informed of these details can really make it simpler for us to figure out your treatment plan.
And if there are any eye diseases that effect anyone in your family, it's vital that you let us know, because several of them are hereditary. It's easy to understand what it's a lot easier to look out for warning signs when we're informed about which conditions you're susceptible to.
Let us know if you notice anything odd about your eyes and vision including double vision, blurriness, flashes of light or spots. We'll then do our very best to figure out the source of the condition, and then recommend the most appropriate treatment. Another thing that will help us provide a thorough exam are your most recent pair of glasses. They give valuable information, even if you wear contact lenses. We look forward to seeing you, and helping you attain good vision.
