How can you make your next eye exam even more productive? If you want to guarantee that your exam is beneficial and productive, there are several facts we'll need to know.

It's important to keep us updated on any current health conditions or problems you are experiencing because your eyes can be affected by changes in your body. What are the sorts of conditions we'd need to know about? Here are a few examples: diabetes, pregnancy, high blood pressure or allergies. Have you been prescribed any medication? If so, we will need to know what you're taking, because drugs, even if they're non-prescription, can also have an effect on your vision.

Eye doctors will also take into consideration some details regarding your lifestyle habits, like whether you're a smoker, because this can have a poor effect on your eyes. Additionally, we'll examine the way you use your eyes. Do you work in a factory, or do you sit at a computer the entire day? Knowing these facts will really make it simpler for us to determine your treatment plan.

As several eye diseases are hereditary, it is vital that you let us know about any of them in your immediate family, especially macular degeneration or glaucoma. Being aware of which eye diseases you might be prone to can make it simpler for us to keep an eye out for and monitor any emerging signs or symptoms.

Warning signs include things like double vision, seeing spots or flashes of light, and blurriness. If you begin to experience any of these, call us as soon as you're able to. We will ascertain the root of the condition, and then recommend the most appropriate treatment plan. Don't forget to bring your most recent pair of glasses with you to the exam. Glasses give us information about your vision, even if you're a contact lens wearer. So don't forget all this when you next see us. Together, we'll figure out the most efficient way to rectify any vision issue you may be experiencing!
