How to Prepare For An Eye Exam

Getting an eye exam is an essential part of staying healthy. However, if it’s been a long time since you received eye care, you might not be sure how to prepare for this exam. At Optical Expressions in Scottsdale and Phoenix, we want to make your eye exam go as smoothly as possible. Here are a few ways to prepare.

1. Make a List

Before you see your optometrist, write down a list of everything you want to address. This includes any changes to your vision, as well as questions you might need answered. When you are in the office, it can be easy to forget the things you wanted to talk about. By writing them down, you will be sure to have them when you need them. This will make it easier to address any problems early.

2. Avoid Screens Beforehand

On the day of your appointment, try not to spend much time looking at screens. Screens are often detrimental to your eye health and you don’t want to have excess strain when you begin your appointment. If at all possible, stay away from screens in the hours leading up to the appointment.

3. Learn Your Family History

An important part of eye health is understanding your risks. If your parents had certain disorders, there is a higher chance that you will have them too. Before your eye exam, gather as much information as you can about your family’s eye health history. Find out what kinds of issues they had and inform your optometrist at your appointment. This will allow us to prioritize these issues when we are doing our examination.
