What to Ask your Optometrist During a Comprehensive Eye Exam

At Inner Harbour Optometry, we know the importance of having a regular eye exam for preventative care and vision changes. If you’re in the Victoria, BC, or Saanich, BC, areas and looking for nearby optometry services, we have two office locations to serve you. One is in the Fisgard neighborhood, with the other one in Fernwood.

One benefit of working with an “optometrist near me” is that it can give you the opportunity to ask important eye care questions. Here are a few things you might consider asking:


What Does a Regular Eye Exam Cover?

A regular eye exam looks for changes to the health of your eyes, as well as how clearly you’re seeing. Many people have this exam once per year but an optometrist on our team might recommend something different. You might recommended to have an exam more frequently if you have a medical condition that affects your eyes or if you’ve noticed a lot of vision changes lately.


Will This Exam Show Vision Changes?

An eye exam will also show vision changes, which is an important part of making sure you’re getting the right eyeglasses or contact lenses for your needs. Additionally, some vision changes could be an indication of disease, so you need to know what’s causing the changes to take place.


How Is This Used for Preventative Care?

The good news is that eye exams are not just for updating your prescription but also for helping detect eye diseases that could threaten your health. Diseases like glaucoma might not present symptoms to the patient before it is too late to stop vision loss. With an eye exam, these diseases can be caught early so that you can get the treatment you need.
