Do you have an eye exam coming up in the near future? There are a few things you should tell our eye doctors to help make sure your exam is a worthwhile one.
It's of great importance that you let us know about any recent health problems you are experiencing because eyes are often vulnerable to changes in your body. What are the sorts of conditions we'd need to be informed of? Here are a few examples: allergies, pregnancy, high blood pressure, diabetes or any other serious illness.
Habits like drinking or smoking can have a negative effect on vision, so if these are parts of your lifestyle, keep us informed. Additionally, we'll examine what you're actually using your eyes for. Do you work in a factory, or do you sit at a computer the entire day? Being informed of this information can really make it simpler for us to determine the solution to your vision problems.
And if there are any eye diseases that effect anyone in your family, it's important to tell us, because a few of them are hereditary. Understandably, it's a great deal easier to keep an eye out for symptoms when we already know which conditions you're prone to.
Warning signs include things like seeing double, spots or flashing lights. If you notice any of these, call us as soon as you can. With the information we have about your history, coupled with our expertise, we'll get to bottom of the root of the condition, and figure out the most appropriate treatment. Don't forget to take your current pair of glasses with you to the exam; even if you normally wear contact lenses, as examining your present glasses gives us important information. We look forward to seeing you, and helping you attain better vision.
