What to Expect During Your Eye Doctor Appointment
If it has been a while since you've visited our optometrist, you may be feeling a little anxious about what to expect. At Dr. Dorothy Park & Associates, we want all of our patients to feel comfortable and confident during their visit. Our eye exam process is designed to provide a thorough and efficient assessment of your vision so you don't spend too much time in the office.
First, we'll ask about your medical history and any current vision problems you may be experiencing. Make sure to let us know about any blurry vision, how your vision is affected when using a computer, or other symptoms you might be worried about. Then, we'll perform a variety of tests to determine the underlying cause that could be affecting your vision and ensure there aren't any other health concerns that need to be addressed. We perform vision tests, eye pressure tests, and imaging tests to help us provide you with treatment.
Once the exam is complete, our eye doctor will provide you with a prescription and recommendations for contacts or glasses. We'll also discuss any lifestyle changes that you can implement to help improve your vision over time.
