How to Prepare for an Eye Exam

Taking care of your eyes includes seeing our optometrist for an eye exam on a yearly basis or whenever you have difficulty seeing. Contact Chapel Hills Vision Clinic in Colorado Springs to make an appointment any time you are suffering from an eye condition or when you want to have your eyes checked for medical problems. Here are some preparations you can take in advance of your appointment.

Gather Necessary Information for Our Optometrist

Before you head out to your appointment with our optometrist, retrieve any paperwork you have in your possession regarding previous eye appointments you had participated in. This will give our optometrist an idea about the condition of your eyes and any prescription requirements you had filled in the past.

Know What You Would Like From Your Appointment

It is wise to have questions ready for our optometrist so you do not forget them when your appointment date arrives. If you have been struggling with vision problems or if your eyes are giving you symptoms of an underlying condition, being able to convey this information to our practitioner is extremely important. This way they will know which tests to conduct during your session, helping to pinpoint a solution for proper treatment.

Get Rest and Be Prepared For Tests to Take

Get adequate rest the night before your appointment so you will be alert and ready to answer questions pertaining to your vision as tests are given. Tests are relatively non-invasive in nature and are conducted in a relaxed setting. Our staff members will explain each test's purpose and will inform you about what to expect so you are not surprised in any way. Dilation of your pupils could help in discovering potential eye troubles. If you decide you would like this test administered, make sure you have someone available to drive you home after your exam is completed.
