- If you wear glasses, make sure your prescription is up to date and that you’re wearing them as prescribed.
- If you experience dizziness or balance issues, be sure and discuss that with your doctor. it could be the side effect of a medication – both prescription and over-the-counter.
- If there are light bulbs in need of changing in your suite, tell the concierge right away.
