Ophthalmology Treatment Frequently Asked Questions

Is your vision starting to blur or not as clear as it once was? Many experience changes in their vision throughout their lifetimes and just need to get an adjustment made with their contacts, glasses, or get set up for the first time with proper vision care. Maybe you are dealing with discomfort in your eyes, experiencing dryness, or maybe something a bit more serious. Perhaps you are looking for a specialist who can talk to you about the potential of LASIK surgery. All of this can be tended to at Spindel Eye Associates. Our team of doctors and eye specialists can get you set up with whatever you need. Whether it is a basic eye checkup, adjustment to your contacts or glasses prescription, or any other pain, irritation, or just to answer questions you have. Spindel Eye Associates is here to help.

How do I prepare for an ophthalmology appointment?

If you are coming in for an appointment, you should always plan ahead. Dilation of your eyes is a process we use to check your eye health. For this appointment, you should bring a pair of sunglasses to help with the light sensitivity after your examination and consider bringing someone who can drive you home.

How long is an ophthalmology appointment?

Once again, plan ahead with your schedule. Depending on how much you need done, you could be at the office for as long as two to three hours. Tests are done by our technicians so we have all the information we need on your eyes and eyesight; some of these may take some significant time, so it is important to remember to be patient and plan in advance.

Is Family history important for ophthalmology?

It is always important to schedule an appointment if you are aware of any family history with eyesight issues. It is important you have your vision completely up to date. Planning an appointment and going to one can be inconvenient. We understand, but we guarantee your life will be much better when you get the vision adjustment you needed.

Those who have parents or grandparents who have had much more serious eyesight problems such as Glaucoma, Macular Degeneration, cataracts, or other issues, it is vital to schedule an appointment with us so we can make sure to avoid any of these problems and make sure your eye health is taken care of.

Is medical history important for ophthalmology?

It is important you let us know about your individual medical history as well. Knowing everything from prior surgeries to current medications you are taking can further and more effectively help us evaluate your specific situation and make sure no interactions with medications occur.
