What To Tell Our Eye Doctor

Is it already time for your next eye exam? In order for us to guarantee that your exam is effective and productive, there are several things we will need from you.

Because vision can be affected by seemingly unrelated health conditions, you’ll need to inform us of any changes you may have recently become aware of. Some examples of conditions you should let us know of are allergies, pregnancy, high blood pressure, diabetes or any other serious condition. If you’ve been prescribed any medications, you should let us know what you are taking, as prescription and even non-prescription drugs can influence your eyes.

Things like drinking or smoking can have a poor effect on your eyes, so if these are a part of your lifestyle, let us know. Tell us what you’re using your eyes for. Are you an artist who strains your eyes working with fine details? Knowing these details can really make it simpler for us to figure out your treatment plan.

Because a number of eye conditions are genetic, it’s crucial that you tell us if there are any of them in your immediate family, especially macular degeneration or glaucoma. Having an understanding of the conditions you may be vulnerable to can make it simpler for us to keep an eye out for and keep track of any emerging signs or symptoms.

Warning signs include changes to your vision like double vision, seeing spots or flashes of light, and blurriness. If you notice any of these, give us a call as soon as you can. We will ascertain what’s behind the symptom, and suggest the best possible way to treat it. It’s also helpful if you take your most recent glasses along to your exam. They provide valuable information, even if you’re a contact lens wearer. We look forward to working with you, and helping you attain your best possible vision.
