Preparing for Your Next Eye Exam in Paducah, KY

Preparing for Your Next Eye Exam in Paducah, KY

Have you noticed that the glasses that you have been wearing for quite some time, are starting to not help you see as great as they once did? Or, are you noticing for the first time, that things that you could read clearly before, are starting to become blurry for the first time ever? This is a sign that it is time to sign up for your next eye exam! Our team at Brush Optical is ready for you to make your next appointment with us as soon as possible! Once you do, there are a couple of things that you should be prepared for. Knowing these tricks may ease your mind heading into your exam, and curve any obstacles you may face when you are at your appointment.


Bring Your Old Glasses

Why bring your old glasses when you’re getting new ones right? Well, maybe not. Make sure that you bring these old glasses with you to the exam. This may sound silly because like we said, you’re getting new ones anyway. However, this could be a helpful step for you and your doctor. You can tell how tight or loose you need your glasses to be, or help determine any similar, or new style of glasses that you want! This is also a good starting step for your doctor as well to get you set up with the perfect pair just for you! If you wear contacts, great! Bring your eye contact lenses and packaging to the exam. Just like bringing your old glasses, this will help speed up your process.

Knowing Your Eye Problems Before Coming In

One of the things your eye doctor cares the most about is your eye health. They want to make sure that you are feeling the best that you can and that you don’t leave the office with a problem that you forgot to bring up. Make sure that once you step inside the office, you know what problems you are having, and what you can ask them to help change. One of the biggest mistakes that we can make is leaving an appointment still with the problem that we had when we walked in, this ensures us time that we have to take again to make that extra appointment. Skip this step, and come fully prepared for the doctor to help you the best that they can.

Actively Speak with Your Doctor


When you are at your exam, but sure to speak up when need be! This ties into the other tip that we have for you. If your doctor asks you about a problem, with your glasses, or contacts, be sure to answer any questions that they may have! Be sure to speak clearly, and really tell the doctor what problems you may be facing. This will help you get through your exam happy, and with any additional problems solved or help you may need. If you are in need of an appointment, give us at Brush Optical a call today!
