What to Expect During an Eye Exam , Kalispell, Montana

At Dolan Family Vision, whether it’s your first eye exam or your fifteenth—the friendly eye doctor and the rest of the team will keep you informed and help you feel at ease. Today, the Kalispell, MT, practice explains what to expect at a routine eye examination.

Patient History Review

If you’re a new patient, you’ll fill out a health history form to help the doctor better understand your unique circumstances. Together, you will review this information and discuss any issues you may be experiencing. If you’re a returning patient, be prepared to discuss any changes to your health or potential concerns. If you’re currently taking medication, have a list on hand just in case you forget to mention any. If you wear glasses or contacts, bring them with you to your visit.

Vision & Eye Tests

eye examDon’t let the word ‘test’ scare you—there are no right or wrong answers at the eye doctor! Using a series of advanced tests, your doctor will thoroughly examine your eyes’ interior and exterior. These tests will help determine the extent of any vision problems and pinpoint the precise prescription that works for you. An eye exam will also illuminate potential eye health issues, such as cataracts.  

Eye Health Evaluation

At the end of your visit, your optometrist will reveal the results of the eye exam. If any further tests are necessary to diagnose your condition, you will be notified. If necessary, you will also be prescribed for contact lenses or eyeglasses . If you have any questions during the appointment, feel free to ask.
