Do you have an eye exam coming up in the near future? There are a few things you should let us know about so that we can ensure you are analyzed completely and thoroughly.
It's of great importance that you let us know about any current health conditions or problems you may have noticed, because your eyes can be affected by changes in your body. 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 illness.
Our doctors will also take into consideration some details regarding your lifestyle habits, like if you're a smoker, because this can have a poor effect on your eyes. Tell us what you're using your eyes for. Does your job take place in a factory, or do you sit at a computer the entire day? Being informed of these details will make it easier for us to determine your treatment plan.
And if there are any eye diseases effecting members of your family, it's important to inform us, because a few of them are hereditary. It's a lot easier to keep an eye out for certain signs when we already know which conditions you may be prone to.
Some symptoms include changes to your vision like seeing double, spots or flashing lights. If you begin to experience any of these, call us as soon as you can. We'll then do our very best to get to bottom of the cause of the condition, and suggest the best possible treatment. Do remember to bring your newest pair of glasses along to the exam. Your specs can give us information about your vision, even if you're a contact lens wearer. Together, we will discover the most efficient way to resolve your eye needs.
