What do you know about your own eyes? If you want to guarantee that your exam is beneficial and worthwhile, there are a number of bits of information we will need from you.
Firstly, it is important that you let us know about any present health conditions or problems you are experiencing as your eyes can be vulnerable to changes in your body. To give an idea, this includes 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 how you use your eyes everyday. Does your job take place in a factory, or do you work in an office? Being aware of this information can help us to choose your treatment plan.
And if there are any eye diseases effecting members of your family, you should inform us, because a number of them are hereditary. Having an understanding of which conditions you might be susceptible to will help us to keep an eye out for and keep track of any red flags.
Warning signs include things like double vision, seeing spots or flashes of light, and blurriness. If you begin to experience any of these, give us a call as soon as you can. We'll then do our very best to discover what's behind the symptom, and figure out the best possible treatment. Remember to take your newest pair of glasses along to the exam. Your specs can tell us important things about your eyes, even if you're a contact lens wearer. We look forward to tending to your needs, and helping you attain good vision.
