You should bring the following to your eye exam:
Current contact lens prescription (boxes in lieu of written prescription), eyeglasses and/or prescription sunglasses.
A list of all current medications (including: vitamins, herbal supplements, etc). Certain medication can affect your vision. Knowing which medications you take can allow the Doctor to better evaluate your eyes.
Your primary care doctor's name and address.
If your appointment includes having your pupils dilated—and most yearly eye checkups do—bring a friend or family member to drive you home. Many people can’t see well enough to drive safely after having their eyes dilated, and it’s better to be safe than sorry.
Your vision insurance information. This may include vision provider name, ID card, primary card holder's information, etc. Lack of proper vision insurance information may result in out of pocket expenses.
A list of questions and/or concerns you may have for the Doctor.
