Welcome! As a new patient, we request that you arrive 10-15 minutes prior to your appointment time so we may complete the necessary paperwork.
On your first visit to our office you will receive a comprehensive eye examination. It is necessary for you to bring your current eyeglasses and/or contact lenses for this exam. The initial work-up is performed by an ophthalmic technician and consists of a review of your medical history along with tests required to collect information about your eyes. A glaucoma check is routinely performed.
Your pupils will be dilated during the initial work-up. It generally takes 20-40 minutes for the dilating drops to take effect. For some people, the use of these drops results in a lessened ability to focus and may increase your sensitivity to light for a short period of time. For this reason, you may want to arrange for transportation following your examination. Our office provides disposable sunglasses for your convenience, but we encourage you to bring your own if you have them.
Following the work-up, you will be seen by the doctor for a more extensive evaluation. The complete examination usually takes approximately two hours. Please allow this amount of time on the day of your scheduled appointment.
In order for your visit to be more pleasant and efficient, please print out and compete the patient information packet below. Please bring these completed forms, a list of your current medications, photo identification, and your insurance cards with you to your first visit. It is our office policy to collect payment at the time of service.
