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 bits of information we will need from you.
It is crucial to inform us of any recent health problems you may have noticed, because your eyes can be affected by changes in your body. What are some conditions we'd need to be informed of? Here are a few examples: allergies, pregnancy, high blood pressure, diabetes or any other serious condition.
The more we know about your lifestyle, the better. For example, are you a smoker? Do you drink? In addition, we will look at how you use your eyes. Are you at university and doing a lot of reading? Being aware of these facts will really make it simpler for us to choose your treatment plan.
And if there are any eye diseases that effect anyone in your family, it's important to inform us, because a number of them are hereditary. Knowing the conditions you might be vulnerable to can make it simpler for us to look out for and monitor any developing signs or symptoms.
Warning signs include things like seeing double, spots or flashing lights. If you begin to experience any of these, come see us as soon as you're able to. With the information we have about your history, coupled with our expertise, we'll get to bottom of what's behind the symptom, and suggest the most appropriate treatment. Don't forget to take your most recent pair of glasses with you when you see us. Glasses tell us important things 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 best way to solve any vision issue you may be having!
