How much do you know about your eyes?

Ladies and gentlemen with eye examinations scheduled for the near future, can we have your attention please? If you want to guarantee that your exam is beneficial and worthwhile, there are a number of facts we will need from you.

Firstly, it is of great importance to let us know about any recent health problems you may have observed, as eyes are often affected by changes in your body. This includes diabetes, pregnancy, high blood pressure or allergies.

Our doctors will also consider some details regarding your current lifestyle, like if you're a smoker, as this can have a poor effect on your eyes. Tell us how you use your eyes. Do you work at a computer a lot? Being informed of these facts will help us to figure out the best thing for your sight.

As a number of eye-related conditions can be passed down to you from your parents, it's vital that you let us know if anyone in your family has any of them, especially glaucoma or macular degeneration. Being aware of which conditions you might be susceptible to can make it simpler for us to keep an eye out for and monitor any warning signs.

Warning signs include changes to your vision like double vision, seeing spots or flashes of light, and blurriness. If you notice any of these, give us a call as soon as possible. With the information we have about your history, coupled with our expertise, we'll get to bottom of what's behind the symptom, and suggest the best possible treatment plan. It's also helpful if you bring your glasses along to your exam. They provide important information, even if you wear contact lenses. Together, we will establish the most effective way to resolve your vision needs.
