How to Prepare for an Eye Exam

If you are searching for an "optometrist near me," then odds are you are looking to get an eye exam or contact lens exam. Before you show up to your appointment with our optometrist at The Eye Doctor Unlimited in College Park, GA, here are a few things you can do to prepare.

Know Your Medications

Medications that have been prescribed to you by other doctors can affect your vision and interact with the medications your eye doctor may want to put you on. Be sure to have a complete list of everything you're taking, both prescription and over-the-counter medications, along with dosages.

Know Your Medical History

You will also be asked about past surgeries, chronic conditions, and the health issues of your immediate family members. This is because some conditions, such as diabetes and heart disease, can affect your eye health and the types of medications and procedures you can receive. Be sure to tell your eye doctor everything you know.

Know What You Want

If you're looking for contact lenses, you will need to let our staff know when you make your appointment. A standard eye exam doesn't typically cover contact lenses, but your eye doctor can help you with them if you tell the office that's what you need. Similarly, be prepared to ask about LASIK or other procedures if you're interested in those eye care options.

Know Your Symptoms

If you or your child is experiencing blurry vision, tell your doctor. Other symptoms, such as dark spots, floaters in your vision, and eye pain, should be mentioned, too. Ideally, try to keep track of when and where you experience these symptoms so your doctor can accurately diagnose your condition.
