Eye exams are standard for most Canadians however it's easy to forget what to bring! Please ensure you have your health card, most recent eye-wear, list of medications and allergies, any eye drops you've been taking frequently within the past month, and sunglasses. You should also bring any backup eye treatments you may have used recently such as old glasses or contacts. You should also bring any eye creams you use.
In many examinations drops are put in patient's eyes that make the pupils bigger and result in blurry vision for 45 minutes to an hour. Pupils remain enlarged for 3-5 hours and you are light-sensitive throughout those hours. Bringing a driver or taking a bus home is advisable.
