Is it already time for your next eye exam? There are a few things you should let us know about to help make sure your exam is a productive one.
Because eyes can be affected by seemingly unrelated health conditions, you'll need to let us know about any changes you are aware of. A few examples of conditions we should know about are pregnancy, diabetes, high blood pressure, and even something which may seem trivial, like allergies.
We will also benefit from knowing details of your current lifestyle, such as if you're a smoker, as this can also be a factor in a number of eye conditions. Tell us what you're using your eyes for. Are you a student who does a lot of reading? Being informed of these details will really make it simpler for us to choose your vision correction needs.
And if there are any eye diseases effecting members of your family, you should inform us, because a few of them are hereditary. It's easy to understand what it's a lot more efficient to look out for certain signs when we're already aware which conditions you're vulnerable to.
Let us know if you are aware of any changes to your vision including double vision, blurriness, flashes of light or spots. We'll then do our very best to discover what's behind the symptom, and suggest the most appropriate treatment plan. Remember to take your newest pair of glasses along when you see us; even if you normally wear contact lenses, because they will give us useful information. We look forward to tending to your needs, and making sure you get better vision.
