Questions to Ask our Mesa (McDowell) Optometrist(s)
When you go to get your vision checked, optometrists are the doctors who usually examine your eyes, check your vision and prescribe glasses or contacts. They also offer advice and treatments to improve your vision, and may also talk over alternatives like LASIK eye surgery depending on your conditions and questions.
Consider the following questions when speaking to your optometrist:
How much has my vision changed since my last visit?
If you are getting updated prescriptions or are monitoring existing conditions, you can discuss the changes in your vision and anything you have noticed since your last appointment.
Am I a candidate for LASIK or refractive surgery?
While a free LASIK consultation will evaluate if you are a candidate for surgery, you can ask your optometrist to answer questions you might have before a consultation.
When is it time to consider Cataract Surgery?
If you have been monitoring the development of cataracts and are noticing increasing blurriness or difficulty seeing at night, you should discuss your symptoms with your doctor to determine if you should be evaluated for Cataract Surgery.
