What You Can Expect From the Eye Doctor Office
Many skip annual eye doctor visits because they assume their eyes are perfect. But eye doctor visits do more than treat poor vision. Regular visits to eye dr offices could enable you to diagnose health problems like glaucoma and diabetes early enough.
So what can you expect from an eye doctor’s office? Read on to find out. Once you fill out the patient paperwork, the doctor will ask you about your general health and eye disease history in your family.
The doctor will then check your ability to see from close and far distances using charts with random letters. They will also test your side vision, ability to see in 3-D, and color perception.
