blue_eye_chartHow should I prepare for my eye examination?

  •  Pre-register online on our website. This cuts down on waiting time and improves your experience.
  • Bring your medical insurance ID card and/or your vision plan card.
  • Bring your prescription eyeglasses and your prescription sun wear.
  • If you wearing contact lenses, bring your contact lens prescription or old boxes.
  • Bring a list of all medications you are taking, prescription or non-prescription, including herbs and vitamins.
  • Try to bring old medical records or a summary of your condition if you have any significant chronic medical eye problems that were treated by another eye physician.
  • Bring your primary care doctor’s authorization or referral form if your insurance requires it.
  • Bring a list of questions or concerns you may have for the doctor to answer.
  • Dilation of the pupil is a standard part of an eye exam.  It causes light sensitivity and blurred vision for 2-4 hours.  Dilation is not an optional part of the examination.  Most people are fine to drive home, but if have any concerns for your safety, please bring a family member or friend to drive you home as most patients are dilated.
  • Allow for one hour for your appointment.
