4 Important Things to Remember for Your Vision Appointment

Multi-Pairs-650x280EyeCare Associates is dedicated to bringing you personalized, professional care. We want you to feel at home in our practice, and we love visiting with you.

The more we understand about your habits, concerns, and existing health conditions, the more personalized care we can provide. There are a few things you can do to help.

Maximize Your Vision Appointments By Bringing Along…

1. Appropriate Healthcare Cards & Information

Do you carry your healthcare cards with you? Some of us do and some of us don’t. It’s a good idea to bring both your medical and vision insurance cards to your eye appointment. With these in hand, completing the necessary paperwork is easier, and we can ensure that the information on file is up to date.

2. Medications You’re Taking

To help your vision care team provide precise care, it’s important that they know the medications and/or supplements you take. Not just the ones that may be specific to your sight, but all of them! Before your appointment, make a list of current medications and supplements including dosages and frequencies.

3. Current Eyewear (including your sunglasses!)

Bring all of the eyewear you use to your appointments. This should include the sunglasses you may be wearing, daily wear, readers, or even occupational eyewear.

4. Notes With Your Questions And/Or Symptoms

Having a clear set of questions can help the EyeCare team monitor your lifelong vision care. If you’re managing chronic conditions, this list will help us see patterns, warning signs, and suggest improvements we can discuss.

Protect Your Vision With Regular Appointments

Regular comprehensive exams help protect one of your most precious assets— your vision! Our vision changes over time, so it’s important to keep scheduled appointments, even when you feel like there aren’t any “problems”. Preventive care is the best care.
