How to Prepare for an Eye Exam
Once you’re scheduled for an eye exam with Williston Optometry, it’s important to spend some time getting ready for your appointment. Preparing for your eye exam will help make sure that you have the information that your doctor needs so that your appointment can go as smoothly as possible. If you are curious about how to prepare for an exam, our optometrist explains below.
Make Notes of Your Specific Symptoms
Before you arrive for your optometrist appointment, spend some time making notes of the specific symptoms that you are experiencing. Are you having blurry vision? Itching or watering eyes? Dryness or issues with any type of pain or discomfort? Make a list of what you’re dealing with, so that you can discuss these symptoms with your doctor. They will be able to review these with you, then develop a treatment plan.
Learn About Your Family History
Contact some older members of your family, such as your parents or grandparents, to learn about any vision symptoms that they experienced. The optometrist will need to know about any family history that you have of vision issues, as some eye diseases are hereditary, and some vision symptoms are caused by other diseases that are hereditary, such as diabetes. This information can help your doctor make an accurate diagnosis and is important for them to have.
Arrive Prepared for Your Appointment
If you already wear glasses or contacts, bring them to your optometrist appointment, even if they’re in disrepair. Bring your insurance information, as well. You may have a different insurance card for optical coverage than you do for your regular health insurance coverage, and it’s important that you bring it to your appointment so that your doctor can note the information and bill your insurance company correctly.
