Ladies and gentlemen with eye exams scheduled for the near future, can we have your attention please? In order for us to make sure your exam is beneficial and productive, there are a number of facts we will need from you.
Because vision can be affected by seemingly unrelated changes to your health, you'll need to inform us of any differences you are aware of. What are some things we'd need to be informed of? Here are some examples: allergies, pregnancy, high blood pressure, diabetes or any other serious condition.
The more we are informed about your lifestyle, the better. For example, do you drink or smoke? Tell us what you're using your eyes for. Are you at university and doing a lot of reading? Being informed of these facts can make it easier for us to figure out the most effective solution for your vision.
And if you have any eye diseases effecting members of your family, you should let us know, because a few of them are hereditary. Having an understanding of the conditions you might be susceptible to can help us to keep an eye out for and monitor any warning signs.
Give us a call if you are aware of anything strange about your vision including blurriness, fatigue, flashes of light, spots and double vision. With the information we have about your history, coupled with our expertise, we'll ascertain what's causing the symptom, and then recommend the best possible treatment plan. It's also good if you take your most recent glasses along to your exam. Glasses give us valuable information, even if you're a contact lens wearer. Together, we will establish the best way to rectify your eye needs.
