Important Questions to Ask an Eye Doctor


Have an ophthalmology check-up but not sure what questions to ask the eye doctor? Prepare by adding these 5 questions to your list:

1. What else can I be doing to improve my eye health?

At the most basic level, you should ask your eye doctor if there are any general steps you can take to improve ocular health. This may seem obvious, but communicating that your eye health is a big priority for you can lead your doctor to make new recommendations. 

2. Is digital eye strain an issue for me? 

We spend more of our lives on screens than ever, and that can result in serious issues from digital eye strain. Ask your doctor if digital screens may be affecting your vision and what you can do about it. 

3. What are my best options for vision correction?

Even if you have glasses that are working for you, it's worth asking what the best options are for eye correction. Even if it's out of your budget, it's a good idea to know all your options. 

4. What should I be doing to protect my eyes? 

Protection and prevention are always the best approaches to eye health, so whether it's UV-blocking sunglasses, protective eye gear, or just proper contact lens care, it's a good idea to talk over eye protection with your doctor. 

5. When should I schedule my next eye check-up?

The frequency of preventive eye check-up appointments depends on your age and your eye health, so make sure to end the visit by discussing when you should plan to come in for another check-up.
