A Couple of Things to Tell Our Eye Doctor

Is it time for your next eye exam? If you want to guarantee that your exam is thorough and worthwhile, there are a few facts we'll need to know.

Because your eyes can be affected by seemingly unrelated health conditions, it's vital that you inform us of any changes you may have recently become aware of. To give you some idea, this includes pregnancy, diabetes, high blood pressure, and even something which may seem trivial, like allergies.

Habits like drinking or smoking can have a poor effect on vision, so if these are parts of your lifestyle, let us know. Tell us how you use your eyes. Are you a craftsman who spends time focusing on fine details? Knowing this information will help us to figure out your treatment plan.

Because several eye-related conditions can be passed down to you from your parents, it is important that you let us know about any of them in your immediate family, especially macular degeneration or glaucoma. Having an understanding of the conditions you might be susceptible to can help us to look out for and keep track of any warning signs.

Let us know if you observe any changes to your vision including blurriness, fatigue, flashes of light, spots and double vision. With the information we have about your history, coupled with our expertise, we'll ascertain what's behind the symptom, and suggest the most appropriate treatment. Don't forget to bring your newest pair of glasses along to the exam; even if you normally wear contact lenses, as examining your present glasses gives us important information. Our Stamford eye doctor looks forward to working with you, and making sure you get good vision.
