If you make routine visits to have your eyes examined, chances are your familiar with the procedure and have formed a trusting relationship with your eye physician. You and your physician should have a mutual relationship, one where information is passed back and forth between the two of you. At Susskind & Almallah Eye Associates, we want you to feel like an integral part of keeping your eyes healthy and that is why it is important that you keep the physical health of your eyes a top priority.
During your eye exams, we will check not just for your prescription and whether or not you need glasses, but also for:
Crossed or lazy eyes
Eye tearing problems
Glaucoma and cataracts
If we do find anything out of the ordinary during an eye exam we will discuss with you the possible treatment options.
If you are getting routine eye exams, chances are that you are having them once a year. If you notice any symptoms that seem out of the ordinary to you leading up to your eye exam, make sure you write them down and bring them in to us. Ask us why your vision is the way it is and what options you have for preventing further vision degeneration.
Remember, your comfort and understanding are important to us and we want to equip you with the right tools and knowledge to take care of your eyes and their health.
