Get prepared for an eye exam with ZEISS



Recently I received an offer from MomSelect to check out the ZEISS website. The website has a section with ZEISS' educational tools (created to enable eyeglass wearers to better understand their vision correction needs, ensure they get the most out of their next eye exam, etc) Like many of you, I vowed this year to take better care of my health, which includes my eyes.

Usually I only wear my glasses at home but as I'm getting *ahem* older I notice I need to wear my glasses more often outside the home. Of course this means I need to plan to have an eye examine. Not exactly a fun thought.

I know it seems like finding an eye doctor isn't the hardest thing to do but you'd be surprised how many things we don't think about asking when selecting an eye doctor that we should! For example, I learned from the website under "Tips for Selecting an Eye Doctor"
  • When inquiring about services, ask what types of lenses the practice offers as all lenses are not created equal. The lens choice can make a big difference in the quality of your visual experience.
That's helpful info to know right? I mean how many of us know anything about eye glass "lenses"?

Speaking of lenses the site explained that "ZEISS spent years developing cutting edge technology to improve the experience of eyeglass wearers with Zeiss Individual® -- the first progressive lens to integrate how your frames, face and prescription work together to create a one-of-a-kind lens personalized for the wearer."

I like that idea of personalized lenses that suit me! You can bet I'll ask about these lenses during my next eye exam. Wondering what other questions to ask? On the website there's a section for "Questions to Ask at Your Next Eye Appointment". Some of the question that caught my attention included
  • Will one pair of glasses meet all of my vision needs?
  • Are there different methods to perform an eye exam? What method do you use and why?
  • What are “computer lenses”?
That last question is especially important for me since I not only work in a office where I use the computer all day but I'm a blogger and social media rock star so I'm on the computer ALL the time! Clearly I need to get the correct type of lenses so I can have the best vision.

Wow, there's a lot that goes into planning my next eye exam but thankfully I learned tons from the ZEISS Better Vision website and feel more confident and prepared for my next eye exam.

Please Note: I was compensated for this post as part of a promotional program with Zeiss through MomSelect. But I do wear glasses and need to schedule an eye exam! No other compensation was received. Views expressed are always 100% my own.
