Appointment Information

The following information will help you prepare for your appointment and expedite your experience.

Preparing for Your Appointment

Please bring your current insurance card, a method of payment (we accept checks or debit/credit cards only), and a complete list of your current medications and dosages (including over-the-counter medications, herbs, and vitamins). 

To make the most of your time with the doctor, make a list of questions ahead of time and bring it to your appointment.

For First Appointments

If you’re a new patient, you can expect your doctor and technician to perform a thorough history and visual exam lasting one to two hours. Your physician might request you undergo additional tests, such as a visual field exam, which takes 20 to 30 minutes to perform.

Canceling an Appointment

If you need to cancel your appointment, please notify the center at least 24 hours in advance so that we can accommodate other patients waiting to schedule an appointment.

Dilation and Driving

To accurately follow your entire visual pathway, your doctor might dilate your eyes. Your pupils will take between 20 to 30 minutes to dilate, during which time you may sit in the waiting or exam room. If you anticipate your exam will include dilation, you might want to arrange for someone to drive you to and from your appointment.

Prescriptions and Refills

It is very important that you do not run out of your medication. Be sure that you have sufficient refills to last until your next appointment with your ophthalmologist. We are happy to provide you with a written prescription upon request.

If you run out of refills, please call your pharmacy and your pharmacist will fax a refill request to us. Please allow us 24 to 48 hours to process refill requests.
