3 Steps to Be Fully Prepared for Your Vision Consultation at the Mountain View Medical Center

A face-to-face consultation with one of our eye doctors at the Mountain View Medical Center is an excellent opportunity for you to obtain expert advice on how to improve your eye health as well as reduce your risk of certain vision problems. If you’re visiting us for the first time here at our Fairbanks eye care practice, we encourage you take the following steps to become fully prepared:

  • Learn as much as you can about your concerns before the consultation. Gather information from both online and offline sources. In addition, have a list of questions handy if you’d like to dig deeper into the information you just obtained from your research. Ultimately, knowing what to expect will make you less anxious before the consultation.
  • Take the time to figure out your specific vision problems. A thorough self-assessment will make it easier for you to communicate to us your vision troubles. You might want to use examples as well (if you’re having problems reading fine print, be specific which types of print you find difficult to read such as the ones in prescription drug bottles, news tickers at the bottom of a TV show, etc)
  • Consider the costs of potential procedures or services that you think may be applicable to your concern. Moreover, you might want to explore your financing options. Isn’t it nice if you arrive at the consultation with a sense of how much funds you are most likely to shell out?
