To all those with eye exams scheduled for the near future, can we have your attention please? In order for us to make sure your exam is beneficial and productive, there are several bits of information we will need from you.
Because your eyes can be affected by seemingly unrelated health conditions, you'll need to let us know about any differences you might be aware of. This includes allergies, pregnancy, high blood pressure, diabetes or any other serious illness. If you've been prescribed any medications, it is useful to let us know about what you're taking, because prescription and even non-prescription drugs can alter your eyes.
Our doctors will also take into consideration some details regarding your lifestyle habits, like whether you're a smoker, as this can also be the cause of several eye conditions. Tell us what you're using your eyes for. Do you work at a computer a lot? Being aware of these details will really make it simpler for us to choose the solution to your vision problems.
And if there are any eye diseases that effect anyone in your family, it's important to let us know, because a number of them are hereditary. It's easy to understand what it's a lot more efficient to look out for symptoms when we're already aware what you're susceptible to.
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 you can. We'll then do our very best to ascertain the root of the condition, and suggest the best possible way to treat it. Do remember to bring your most recent pair of glasses along when you see us; even if you normally wear contact lenses, as examining your present glasses gives us important information about your eyes. Together, Thomas Eye Care and you will find out the best way to rectify your eye needs.
