What to Expect
For both adults and children, an eye exam is a critical part in maintaining your overall health and well-being, and therefore, regular eye exams should be incorporated into your health routine. Comprehensive eye exams assess your vision and the health of your eye, looking for early signs of disease that may not have obvious symptoms. Depending on your age, family history, general health and eye health, it is recommended to have an eye exam every one to two years. Of course if you experience any serious symptoms that affect your eyes or your vision, you should contact your eye doctor immediately.
Remember the following for your next eye doctor visit:
Know your medical history and list of current medications
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 cataracts are hereditary
Ask in advance about your particular vision insurance plan, and if a co-pay will be due
Bring your insurance card, identification and method of payment, if necessary
Bring your most recent prescription for glasses or contact lenses
Bring your corrective eyewear to the exam
If undergoing a test using dilation eye drops, bring proper eye protection, like sunglasses, for after your appointment
Most importantly, remember that eye doctors—and everyone within the eyecare practice—are there to help you see your best and feel your best
