During Your Eye Examination

An eye examination is a routine and pleasant experience. Some advice…

  • Don’t worry about making a mistake or giving the wrong answer
  • Don’t worry about your answers contradicting one another
  • Don’t hesitate to say so if you are unable to answer some of the questions
  • Don’t be alarmed if, for a few minutes during the examination, you find your vision getting worse instead of better.
