Your Visit

The length of your visit will vary depending upon the reason for your appointment. New patients and many returning patients undergo a complete eye exam and often require a dilation of the pupils which requires up to two hours. Dilating drops may cause blurring of vision and sensitivity to bright lights, so it is recommended that patients bring sunglasses to wear home at the conclusion of the visit. Some patients are uncomfortable driving after dilation, and may, therefore, wish to arrange for a friend or relative to accompany them.

During your visit an assistant will take your medical history and check your vision. Always bring the spectacles you wear. A list of current medications is also helpful. A technician will perform screening tests as well as an examination to determine if a prescription for glasses or if a change of the prescription is necessary. This test is known as a refraction. The doctor will examine your eyes, discuss the results and determine if any treatment is required.

If you are unable to keep your appointment for any reason, please notify us as soon as possible.

New Patients

New patients should plan on arriving 15 minutes prior to their scheduled appointment. A list of all medications and dosages as well as medical insurance cards and a photo ID should be on hand at the time of your first visit. This provides time to fill out our patient information form and for us to gather your insurance information.

If your insurance carrier requires a referral from your primary care physician, please make sure that it has been obtained before the visit and that you bring it with you to the office. As a patient, you will be responsible at the time of visit for all copays and refraction charges. When calling or making an appointment by phone, please have your insurance cards handy.
