Choosing an Eye Doctor
Assessing an Eye Doctor
After your appointment, ask yourself some questions.
Did you have to wait a long time? If you did, you may want to ask the office staff about the average waiting time before appointments.
Did the exam feel thorough? If you feel like the doctor was rushing you, that's not a good sign.
Did the doctor take the time to listen to your questions and answer them clearly? Good communication is key for your eye health.
Did you feel comfortable? This really is important. If you don't like your eye doctor, you'll be less likely to get your check-ups -- and that's not good for your health.
If the doctor didn't meet your expectations, don't be afraid to try someone else. Your eye health is key for a long, healthy life. It’s worth the effort to take the time to find an eye doctor you trust.
