Why Does Your Optometrist Need to Know Your Medical History?
When you visit a health clinic, you’re likely to fill out patient forms about your personal medical history and any illnesses that your doctor should be aware of. When you go to get your eyes checked at a routine exam, you may find yourself filling out the same types of forms – but why? Does your eye health really relate that closely to your other medical conditions and treatments?
The answer is yes! Your eye health can be an excellent indicator of the health of the rest of your body, and alternatively your bodily health can determine the health of your eyes. One of the best examples of this is with persons who have diabetes. Not only does diabetes affect things like weight and insulin production, but it can also have lasting effects on vision for both children and adults. If you have seen a medical doctor for the treatment of diabetes, the medications you take and your diet will also affect your eye health.
One of the most important reasons that you should schedule an annual eye exam is because your optometrist may notice indicators of a health condition long before you experience symptoms in other areas of your health. For example, if an optometrist notices that your pupils are two different sizes, called anisocoria, this could indicate a serious health risk that requires medical treatment right away.
Your optometrist is someone you can trust to provide sound guidance about medical conditions relating to your eyes. Therefore, providing your medical history can help them accurately diagnose and treat potential eye problems.
Vision correction is just a part of what optometrists can do for you and your family. We recommend annual visits for most patients, but every two years may be fine for some. Let us make sure everything is fine with your eye health and advise you on ways to keep it that way. We look forward to seeing you!
