A complete history will be taken from you regarding your current general health, any previous eye problems or conditions that you have experienced and a review of any problems that you might be experiencing with your vision or your eyes.

Please be sure to tell the technician or eye doctor about any medications you are taking for these medical conditions, including over the counter medications, eye drops, homeopathic medications, vitamins and/or herbs that you may have been using. They are all important.


Your family history will be reviewed with you as well. Please tell us about any health problems that run in your family such as diabetes and high blood pressure, as well as any eye problems that your family members may have experienced such as glaucoma, cataracts or macular degeneration as they can tend to run in families.
