Some people rank going to the eye doctor on their favorite activity's list somewhere down the bottom near going to the dentist. I'm going to go over what we cover, but let me preface this by saying - We don't shoot a puff of air in your eye anymore!...
The first part of the exam we discuss and gather some medical history, including any history of eye or vision problems if you're new to us. If you've seen another optometrist either here in Amarillo or in another city we can also have them send over your previous records. We will usually check your blood pressure (it's always good to check it, and it can be a factor in some eye health issues). Not everyone likes discussing it, but it's important to let our eye doctors know if you have diabetes, are pre-diabetic or have hypertensive issues. Letting us know these issues will help us design your visit around the specific issues that you may face concerning your vision.
