Eye Exams From Our Optometrist
It is important to have routine eye exams to ensure your eye health and ability to see properly. If you need an eye examination, contact Dr. Patrick Takata at New Vision Optical Wilmette to make an appointment. Our optometry team is ready to keep your eyes in the best of health. Read on to learn what you can expect during an eye examination with our Wilmette optometrist.
Some Information Will Be Collected
You will need to fill out some paperwork that we will keep on file for future reference. This includes your contact information, information about your current vision and any problems you have been experiencing, problems with your eye health in general, and information about any medical conditions you deal with regularly. If you have vision insurance, be sure to bring along your card, so we can reach out to your provider during your appointment. Be sure to alert us of any changes in your vision or discomfort you are experiencing in your eyes so our Wilmette optometrist can look into these difficulties in detail.
Your Eye Health Is Assessed
Our optometrist will perform a series of tests of your vision to determine whether you need treatment for an eye condition. This is done using state-of-the-art equipment in the comfort of our office. Each test only takes seconds or minutes to complete, and they are non-invasive in nature. If you would like our optometrist to take a closer look at your pupils for any medical conditions, you will need to have eye drops administered to enlarge them. You will need to bring someone to your appointment as it is not advisable to drive after these eye drops are given. Your vision will be blurry for a few hours after the test is conducted.
Your Prescription Is Determined
In addition to checking on the health of your eyes, our optometry team will check on your vision as well. If you are unable to see clearly, you will likely need eyeglasses or contact lenses to correct your vision properly. If you already use corrective lenses, and you wish to purchase contact lenses, alert our staff so a fitting is conducted during your appointment. Our staff will assist with the selection of eyeglass frames or contact lenses that work best for your particular lifestyle. We have an array of selections available on-site for your convenience.
