Choosing an eye care team that suits the unique needs of you and your family is one of the most important health decisions you can make. With so many things to consider, it can be difficult to know if you are making the right choice. So, to make things easier for you, we compiled a list of questions to ask when you are searching for that ideal eye care team.
Are you available when I need you?
Most people are either at work or school during the day so choosing an optometrist that understands your schedule will save you a lot of time in the long run. In a perfect world, everyone would be able to take a break from the responsibilities of daily life to take care of themselves, unfortunately that is not always the case. That is why it’s helpful to consider your optometrist’s office hours before making that first appointment.
At Beyond Vision, we offer extended hours until 7pm or 8pm at all three of our locations. Additionally, we are open on Saturdays and two of our three locations (Terwillegar, Mill Woods and Oxford Landing) are even open on Sundays!
How is your practice evolving?
Over the past few years, science and technology have improved countless industries across the globe and the healthcare field is no different. Whether it be the newest health care tool or adding other services to the clinic that will allow patients more convenience and peace of mind, most doctors are constantly educating themselves to find the best solutions for their patients.
In an effort to help serve Beyond Vision patients better, we will be introducing some exciting new services in the coming weeks! Stay tuned for more information!
How else can you help me?
This is important because, these days, offering an eye exam is not enough. You as a patient want personalized care for yourself and your loved ones. If your current doctor is not offering helpful post-exam resources and health care information, maybe it’s time to search for a doctor that makes you a priority, even when you’re not there.
At Beyond Vision, we know you have options, that is why we work hard to offer more value and earn your business. Through various channels, such as our blog, newsletter and social channels, we stay connected with our patients in order to offer up-to-date healthcare information and resources. Our team is coming up with new ideas to help improve your experience and quality of life all the time!
What are others saying?
Doing your homework when shopping around for the best optometrist is important but you can only gain so much from skimming a website or making a call. Asking friends and family or taking a look at the testimonials or ratings from other patients is a good idea.
You can take a look at our client testimonials on our Beyond Vision Facebook page. In addition to that, we make it a point to engage with our patients online when they have questions for us!
How do you give back?
More often than not, what separates the greatest patient experiences from the worst, is a doctor’s passion for eye care and more importantly, their genuine desire to help others. Asking how a doctor and his team choose to use their skills to help others is one way to ensure that you are in good hands.
At Beyond Vision, we make it a point to give back to the community on a regular basis. Whether it be our team taking time to volunteer with the Ronald Mcdonald House charity, being involved with the See it Forward Program or travelling abroad to offer eyecare to the less fortunate, we are passionate about using our skills to enhance the lives of others at home and abroad.
We hope this helps you simply your decision-making process! You can contact us if you have any questions at all or subscribe to our newsletter to stay up-to-date with all that’s goings on and the latest in health news!
