Q: How long is a typical exam?
A: Your exam will typically take 30 minutes, depending on the complexity of your particular situation and any questions you may have.
Q: Should I come in wearing my contact lenses?
A: You may wear your contact lenses to the exam if you wish.
Q: Why is my personal background important?
A: The doctor will review any current vision problems, your general health, as well as discuss your hobbies and lifestyle requirements to better tailor the examination to your needs.
Q: What can I expect from the overall exam?
A: In addition to determining your prescription, your eye examination will also check to make sure your eyes are healthy. The doctor will test your color vision, depth perception, as well as check for any early indicators of possible eye disorders, such as cataracts, retinal problems and glaucoma. Ultimately, the elements of your exam will be determined by the doctor.
Q: Why does the doctor ask me, "Which is better, one or two?"
A: These questions will be asked during the portion of the examination when your prescription is established. The doctor will ask you to compare a series of lenses to determine which is clearer for you. As the differences become less noticeable, the doctor will be closer to finalizing your prescription. For this reason, if you're having a hard time choosing between the options, it's a good thing!
Q: Will my pupils be dilated?
A: Pupil dilation is not always necessary. The doctor will make this decision during your exam. If required, this painless process is done on same day or it can be re-scheduled. Dilation helps detect diseases like diabetes, high blood pressure and macular degeneration.
Q: Is parking available?
A: Yes, EyePRO Optometry In Calgary is located at Beddington Towne Centre. There are always enough free parking spaces.
