How can you make your next eye exam even more productive? There are a few things you should inform us of so that we can make sure you are analyzed completely and thoroughly.

Because vision can be affected by seemingly unrelated changes in your body, it’s important that you inform us of any recent changes you may have recently become aware of. What are the sorts of conditions we’d need to know about? Here are a few examples: allergies, pregnancy, high blood pressure, diabetes or any other serious illness.

Eye doctors will also consider details of your lifestyle habits, like whether you’re a smoker, as this can also be a factor in a few eye conditions. Tell us how you use your eyes. Do you work in a factory, or do you work in an office? Being informed of these details will really make it simpler for us to figure out your treatment plan.

And if you have any eye diseases effecting members of your family, you should let us know, because a few of them are hereditary. It’s much more efficient to keep an eye out for certain signs when we already know what you’re prone to.

Warning signs include things like seeing double, spots or flashing lights. If you notice any of these, give us a call as soon as you can. We will get to bottom of the cause of the condition, and suggest the most appropriate treatment plan. Remember to bring 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 seeing you, and helping you attain better vision.
