What do my symptoms mean?
This is an important question to ask your optometrist when you are seeking assistance with your symptoms. It is important to understand what is going on with your vision so that you can understand how to you are going to address it with correction. Your optometrist will be able to go over your symptoms with you and make sure you understand what is going on with your vision issues. Then, your optometrist will be able to tell you about the approach that they will take to help you correct those issues. Be vocal with your vision care specialist.
How can I maintain and monitor my eye health?
This is another important question to ask your optometrist. They should be able to inform you about ways that you can maintain your current vision health and what you can do to monitor your current symptoms. The answer will vary depending on your situation and your eye condition. If your eyes are healthy, your doctor will likely just recommend annual checkups and
preventative measures. If you have an eye disease or disorder, your doctor might prescribe medication, refer you for surgery, recommend lifestyle changes, or more frequent appointments.
Ask about your treatment options for your vision needs
It is also very important to ask your optometrist about the plan for treatment for your vision health needs. Your optometrist should be able to walk you through the plan for your treatment and present you with different treatment options.
