Have you ever visited your eye doctor and you were asked questions relevant to your eye and general health, and you couldn’t answer?
If yes, you are not alone. Many patients are unable to provide details about their health history as well as other relevant information that the eye doctor needs to make accurate diagnosis and treatment recommendations.
Inability to provide details about your health history can be embarrassing for you as a patient and often makes the doctor’s job more difficult. It can also delay treatment and cost you more money when you have an emergency, and your regular eye doctor is unavailable to provide the details required.
To avoid this situation, I have put together a checklist of items and information you should have before and after you visit an eye doctor. You can download the checklist HERE.
Go through the list. Tick the ones you have. Identify the ones you do not have and make arrangement to get them before you ever need them.
