What to Expect Upon Your Visit
Upon your arrival, our receptionist will welcome you as a member of our practice. If you haven't already done so online, we will ask you to complete a few forms. This paperwork provides us with your health history and other information related to providing you with the best vision solutions.
We've also included a list below of the most commonly asked questions about coming in for an eye exam.
Why is my personal background important?
The doctor will review any current vision problems, your general health, as well as discuss your hobbies and lifestyle requirements to better tailor the examination to your needs. Because some eye conditions are hereditary you will also be asked about the health history of your immediate family.
What can I expect from the overall exam?
In addition to determining your prescription, or how well you see up close and far away, your eye examination will also check to make sure your eyes are healthy. The doctor will test your color vision, depth perception, as well as check for any early indicators of possible eye disorders, such as cataracts, retinal problems and glaucoma. Ultimately, the elements of your exam will be determined by the doctor.
Why does the doctor ask me, "Which is better, one or two?"
These questions will be asked during the portion of the examination when your prescription is established. The doctor will ask you to compare a series of lenses to determine which is clearer for you. As the differences become less noticeable, the doctor will be closer to finalizing your prescription. For this reason, if you're having a hard time choosing between the options, it's a good thing!
Why is it necessary to know my blood pressure?
High blood pressure can affect the blood vessels in your eyes and can lead to future vision problems.
Is it necessary for doctor to dilate my pupils during the exam?
Pupil dilation is not always necessary. The doctor will make this decision during your exam. If required, this painless process is like opening a door so the doctor can fully exam the retina. Dilation can also help detect diseases like diabetes, high blood pressure and macular degeneration.
Do I have to have the air puff test?
Not necessarily. The puff of air measures the fluid pressure in your eyes, this measure of the pressure inside the eye is very important in determining your risk for glaucoma. Glaucoma is a dangerous eye disease that can cause vision loss. Our doctors find the air puff to be the quickest and most convenient method to measure intraocular pressure. But, there are other techniques that do not involve an air puff, one of which requires instilling a yellow-colored eye drop which drains out of the eye within 15 minutes and has no effect on your vision or pupils. Please discuss your preference with the doctor during your exam.
