If you’ve scheduled an appointment for an eye exam, you might be wondering what to do in preparation or what to bring with you to your visit. Our optometrist in Fairfax, VA, explains what you should do prior to going to your appointment and what to expect during your visit below.
It’s common to forget to relay all the symptoms you’re experiencing once you get to the doctor’s office. Before your appointment, think about all the eye symptoms you have and write them down. Note when your symptoms began, what triggers your symptoms, and if anything eases them. Let our eye doctor know every symptom during your visit to get the most accurate diagnosis.
If you’re looking for new glasses or a new prescription, bring your existing glasses if you have them. Having access to your existing prescription will help our doctor determine what needs to be done to restore your vision!
Wear your lenses to the office if you’re looking for a new contact lens prescription. You should also bring in the box your contacts came in and the prescription for your contacts if you have access to it. This will allow our optometrist to adjust your prescription instead of starting from the bottom, which saves you time and money. If you have any other questions, feel free to call our optometrist before your visit!
