Know the answers to these questions before you step into the waiting room: What eye problems or overall health problems have you had in the past? What medications are you taking? Has anyone in your family had eye problems, such as cataracts or glaucoma? Has anyone in your family had diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease or other health problems? Your answers can help your eye doctor assess your risk of eye disease and vision problems.
