Have insomnia and degrading vision. Want accurate eye exam

I have been needing to have an eye exam for quite a while. However, the last few weeks I have been suffering from insomnia and have only been sleeping 3 hours a night. Will lack of rest before an eye exam affect it? I ve worn glasses all my life, but haven t had an eye exam in the last 7 years due to moving from one city to another, and I have noticed my vision degrading somewhat. Since it has been so long since my last eye exam I want to make sure the exam is as accurate as possible...

Ophthalmologist 's  Response
sleeping is necessary for your brain to function well but it does not affect eye examination
definately it causes redness burning and tired eyes for that you can rub ice over your eyes which will help you
insomnia does not decrease your vision but you have to get eye examined every six month because incorrect glass power can decrease your vision
take care and visit an ophthalmologist once in a six month
