On your first visit, please bring your EYEGLASSES (or contact lenses, if applicable), a list of your current MEDICATIONS and dosages you are taking, and your INSURANCE CARD.
Upon arrival for your appointment, please advise the receptionist of any changes in your address, phone number, personal information, etc., that may have occurred since your previous visit.
You may be asked to complete a medical history and information form. A complete eye examination requires approximately one hour and will include a review of your complete medical history, examination for glasses (refraction), and dilating (enlarging) of the eye. The dilating drops may cause temporary blurring of vision (especially for reading) and sensitivity to bright light, which may make driving uncomfortable and unsafe. Please make arrangements for transportation. If you wish, you may request “reversal” drops, which are available to shorten the length of time your eyes are dilated.
The technician will check your vision and eye pressure. The physician will check your eyes and may ask you to undergo additional testing, such as, Fluorescein Angiography, ICG Angiography or Ultrasonography, usually performed in our office. The physician will talk with you about test results and design an appropriate treatment plan for you.
If you have any suggestions, questions, or complaints, please discuss them with us so that we may serve you better. We are proud of our office, our modern equipment, our trained staff, and our commitment to provide the finest quality eye care.
