We feel that it's important to outline the process so you can feel comfortable knowing what to expect at your appointment. Upon arrival, our receptionist will welcome you as a member of our practice.
Next, one of our friendly technicians will take you to the pretesting area. They will ask about your vision and eye health history and do a serious of preliminary tests, including a digital image of your retina. The technician will provide this information to the doctor. The doctor will then continue the exam by refining your glasses prescription and discussing your vision needs with work, school, or hobbies. The doctor will also look thoroughly at the health of the inside and the outside of your eyes. You will be checked for any early indicators of possible eye disorders such as cataracts, macular degeneration, retinal problems, and glaucoma. The doctor will review your results with you and provide recommendations for eyeglasses, contact lenses, and health treatment if necessary. Now you are ready to select your new eyeglasses or try on contact lenses!
Remember the following for your next visit:
Know your medical history and list of current medications. Your systemic health can impact your eyes.
Know your current symptoms and be able to describe them - write them down if necessary.
Know your family history - some eye diseases like glaucoma and macular degeneration are hereditary.
