Planning Your Visit
A new patient visit will typically last 1 hour, and a returning visit should last under 30 minutes. Most patients will not need to have their eyes dilated. Instead, patients will have their retinas examined through the Optos wide-field retinal imaging system. However, some situations and conditions may warrant a full dilated eye examination, which should cause blurred vision for approximately 2 to 6 hours. If you feel like you will have a difficult time driving after your visit, please be sure bring a ride or to arrange alternative transportation. We do offer disposable sunglasses for your convenience. Please arrive 10 minutes before your scheduled visit.
If this is your first visit, we encourage you to print and complete the forms available at the bottom of this page. Please bring the completed forms with you to your visit. These forms will also be available at our office for you to fill out in person on the day of your appointment. Also, please be sure to bring your insurance cards and a form of identification. If your insurance provider requires pre-approval, bring the approval form as well. Please bring a complete list of your medications and any medical records that you may have received from your previous ophthalmologist.
