Our receptionists will ask you to complete registration forms (if you haven’t already) including your address, phone numbers, contact person and insurance coverage.
A certified ophthalmic technician will then take an initial history and obtain preliminary measurements, followed by a thorough medical exam by our physicians. Drops may be used to dilate your pupil to permit a complete eye exam. The drops usually take 20-30 minutes to work. Please note that this pupil dilation may temporarily interfere with your ability to drive. If this is a concern, please make arrangements for someone to drive you home following your visit.
In preparation for your exam, please compile the following items and bring them to your appointment:
1. Latest glasses
2. Referral forms
3. Insurance card(s)
Please be sure to take all of your regular medications, including eye drops, at their normally scheduled times. It may also be helpful to bring a driver if you are concerned about dilation after your exam.
Diagnostic testing will be performed during your appointment. An initial exam is very complex
and usually takes a few hours.
Please bring ALL eye medication bottles
A list of ALL medications
A letter from your referring doctor including any eye diagnoses and any eye surgeries
