Preparing for an Eye Exam

Wednesday, February 23rd, 2011 
   

An eye exam is not like a shopping trip to the grocery store.  It is a medical exam to see if your eyes are healthy and if necessary, to get glasses for a visual deficiency.  Being prepared for your eye exam will make the experience more pleasant.  The first step is to make an appointment with your eye doctor.  Have your name, phone number, address and insurance information available.  On the day of your appointment, try to be a few minutes early as there may be health forms that need updating.  Please take your insurance information and all of your medications with you.

We are a medical practice with four doctors and they see surgery patients as well as emergencies.  Some patients are coming in for testing only or to pick up glasses or contact lenses.  Every patient’s insurance has to be verified by their insurance company the day of service.  Please keep all these things in mind when patients are not called in the order in which they sign in.

During your exam, the doctor will check the health of your eyes.  This sometimes requires dilation of the pupils to allow him to view the retina.  The effects of dilation are blurred reading vision for a few hours afterward and large pupils which could last up to a day depending on the patient.  If you are dilated, disposable sunglasses are provided. We will test for glasses if necessary and there are other tests that may be ordered by the doctor if he sees a problem.  We perform a thorough exam.

At the end of the exam, the doctor will explain his findings and recommendations.  Our doctors treat and specialize in a variety of eye problems and recommend a yearly exam.  We have clinics in Tifton and Valdosta for your convenience, so call us for your yearly eye appointment!

Eyeglass Care & Advice

Monday, November 8th, 2010 
   
Eyeglasses are sometimes affordable, however there are some that cost over $300 which is an investment that all patients want to make last and stretch as far as they can. As an opticain I want to provide tips and advice on caring for your eyeglasses.
  1. Keep in a case – Keeping eyeglasses in a protective case is the best way to protect them when your not useing them.
  2. Clean the frames – Frames can get dirty through oils and daily use, and should be cleaned at least once a month. All it takes is a cleaning wipe along the lenses and under the nose pads.
  3. Fix it –  Frames have screws on both sides and around  the nose pads that may become loose or fall out. Screw these in using eyeglass kits that can be purchased at most optical shops.
  4. Take it to an Optician – Opticians are trained to maintain eyeglasses and can help with many frame issues.
  5. Hinges with no screw – For a quick fix for a lost screw at any of the hinges, use a small wire to tie it up. This should hold until it can be fixed. Definitely no glue!
  6. Look for deals – Having a spare is great to have and some optical shops often have highly discounted second pair, and other specials.
  7. Reuse old frames – People who have changes in vision have a new prescription that requires different lenses, but often times the same frames can be used. This can cut the cost of eyeglasses.
