When you have an upcoming eye exam in Orlando, there are ways that you can prepare for the appointment. It can help to have everything ready when you talk to our eye doctor. Dr. Anderson and our team at Advanced Optical have compiled a little to-do list to keep in mind when it’s time to book your next eye exam.
To avoid being surprised by the charges that you may incur at our optometry center, make sure you take a look at your eye insurance before you visit us. Find out how much coverage you have, how much is left for the year, and how much the company will pay for glasses or contact lenses. This can help enormously when you are choosing your glasses or contact lenses. If the appointment is for your child, make sure the office knows this before the exam begins.
Health and History
Before you visit our optometrist, it is helpful to go over your health history, especially when it comes to eye problems, as well as your family’s history of eye diseases. This can help our optometrist know what to look for when your eyes are being examined. You should also be ready with a list of questions that may pertain to your eye health since your previous visit.
What to Bring
Make sure that you bring your glasses, contacts, and sunglasses. You will also need to bring a list of all of the medications you take. This includes over-the-counter medications as well, not just prescription medication. You may also want to bring someone with you to drive you home if your eyes will be dilated during the exam.
