What to think about before your visit:
- Have I noticed any eye problems such as blurry vision, flashes of light, poor night vision, or double vision?
- Do I have trouble judging distances or distinguishing between reds and greens?
- Is a vision problem making me nervous about doing certain activities?
- Am I willing to listen to the eye doctor’s advice about fixing my vision problems, even if it might be difficult?
- How well am I taking care of my glasses or contacts? Do I take my contacts out each night and rinse them thoroughly?
- Have I had any health issues, injuries, operations, or sicknesses lately that my eye doctor should know about?
- Does my family have a history of eye problems such as glaucoma or cataracts?
What to bring:
- Your current glasses, sunglasses, and contacts
- A list of current medications—and not just prescription medications. Your eye doctor can look at the list and determine if your medications could be affecting your vision.
- The name and address of your primary care doctor
- Your vision insurance information
- A list of the questions you want to ask your doctor so you don’t forget them
