Maintaining your eye health is vital for many reasons. Most importantly, healthy eyes help us see the world around us as best we can.
For people with serious eye problems and diseases, an ophthalmologist is needed to help care for and treat their specific condition. You should feel comfortable asking your ophthalmologist a variety of questions regarding a variety of topics related to your eye health, especially if you are considering LASIK surgery or any other type of corrective surgery.
Here are 3 questions you should ask your ophthalmologist at your next visit:
1) How can I protect my vision?
Your ophthalmologist will be able to perform different tests to find out details about your vision and what improvements need to be made. There are some steps you can take to protect your eyes daily, such as wearing sunglasses, eating green vegetables, and taking proper care of contact lenses. However, more serious conditions may require corrective surgery.
2) Can you explain the procedure?
If your ophthalmologist recommends surgery, make sure they can explain the procedure to you in a way that you completely understand. You want to have all of the information on how the procedure is done, what it will correct, and what you can expect before you make your final decision.
3) What are my payment options?
This is an important question should you decide to go forward with surgery. You want to make sure you know about all the costs included in your total estimate. You also want to see if there are any discount options available.
