How can you make your next eye exam even more productive? There are several things you should let us know about to help make sure your exam is a useful one.
It's crucial that you inform us of any current health conditions or problems you may have noticed, because eyes are often vulnerable to changes in your body. What are the sorts of things we'd need to be informed of? Here are a few examples: diabetes, pregnancy, high blood pressure or allergies.
The more we know about your lifestyle, the better. For example, are you a smoker? Do you drink? Tell us how you use your eyes. Are you at university and doing a lot of reading? Being informed of these details can really make it simpler for us to choose the solution to your vision problems.
And if you have any eye diseases effecting members of your family, it's vital that you tell us, because several of them are hereditary. Having an understanding of the eye diseases you may be prone to will make it much easier for us to keep an eye out for and keep track of any red flags.
Come see us if you notice anything odd about your eyes and vision including double vision, blurriness, flashes of light or spots. With the information we have about your history, coupled with our expertise, we'll discover what's causing the symptom, and figure out the best possible way to treat it. Another thing that will help us provide a thorough exam are your most recent pair of glasses. They provide important information, even if you're a contact lens wearer. So don't forget all this when you next see us. Together, we'll figure out how to solve any vision issue you may be having!
