What to Expect at Northwest Dry Eye Center
The key to Dr. Jensen’s success in treating the toughest cases of dry eye disease is getting the diagnosis right. He will spend the time to listen to you and carefully examine your eyes in order to determine exactly why your eyes are dry. Once that is accomplished, he will work with you to develop a treatment plan customized for you.
Your First Appointment
A detailed history sheet should have already been sent to you before your first appointment, Please bring it, filled out, along with any eye drops or other eye medications that you have used. A list of any medications that you take along with a detailed medical history are also important to bring. You will be asked specific questions regarding your dry eye symptoms and treatments, including chronology, effectiveness, and ease of use.
If possible, please do not use any eye drops within two hours of your appointment, or use ointments the night before. Swimming, saunas, and the like are also discouraged on the day of your appointment.
