* Instructions to the customer during an eye examination:
  • Explain to the optician your individual eye problems, for example double vision, frequent headaches, sensitivity to light ect.
  • Answer the opticians questions during the eye examination clearly and if you are not sure of the question or the answer, ask for help. – Most errors occur because of bad communication ( the customer doesn’t understand the question or the optician doesn’t understand the answer).
  • State clearly for what type of use the new eyeglasses are meant for, but also listen to the optician as he may have a better solution for your eyes.
* General information on eye examination and vision:
  • An eye examination should be done yearly or atleast bi-annually. – You might not have to renew your eyeglasses after every examination but it is good to know what direction your eyesight is taking.
  • When the difference in the new prescription compared to the old one is considerable, it might take some time for your eyes to get used to it. This stage requires patience. – Should your eyesight continue being unclear for a lengthy period (several weeks upto a month) or the eyeglasses cause dizziness or headache, contact emmediately the optician.
