Do your homework!
We want you to get the most out of your yearly eye exams! We’ve crafted a list for your use especially so that you can be prepared. Check out the checklist below and please feel free to contact our offices with any and all questions.
Be sure to know the following information:
- Your family’s eye health history (cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration etc.)
- Your general health conditions
- Prescriptions and any over-the-counter drugs you may be taking
- Signs and symptoms of eye-related problems you have noticed
- Prepare a list of any questions you might have about your vision
During your appointment please bring the following:
- Glasses, contact lenses
- A pair of sunglasses (to reduce light sensitivity if dilating drops are used)
- Private Insurance Card(s)
- Prescription Medication
If required, dilating eye drops may be used to perform a thorough retinal examination. As a result, your eyes may be sensitive to light and you may have trouble reading right after testing. These symptoms may disappear within two to six hours. Wearing sunglasses after your appointment will help minimize the light sensitivity.
We look forward to serving you!
