  • please arrive 10 minutes before your exam time and contact us by phone or text when you arrive at the building
  • allow at least 45 minutes in your schedule for your appointment time
  • please bring only 1 family member with you, if necessary, when accompanying a minor, translation is required, or if the patient requires physical/cognitive assistance
  • bring your eyeglasses, computer glasses and sunglasses to your appointment
  • if you use contact lenses, bring them in their case
  • if you have your most recent contact lens information, such as the boxes they are packaged in, or your most recent prescription, bring that information as well
  • all guests except those 2 years old or less must wear a mask while in the clinic
  • all visitors to the office are required to wear a mask, if you do not have one, we will provide one for you for $3/mask for charitable donation
  • bring a list of all your medications, prescription or non-prescription, including vitamins
  • if you have been referred by your doctor, advise the staff at the time of booking and provide a hard copy prior to your visit
  • if you require forms filled, please email them prior to your visit
  • check your vision insurance if applicable prior to your exam; we can no longer call insurance providers to find out coverage during your visit in our effort to limit contact time
  • bring a list of questions or concerns you may have and present at the time of your exam
  • if you are interested in contact lenses or a laser eye surgery consultation, or any other special considerations, please mention this to staff when booking your appointment and again when you arrive
  • we can direct bill in many cases – in some cases direct billing payments are made to the patient, so the patient will be responsible for any fees at the time of visit
  • we require 48 hours of notice for canceling or rescheduling appointments, a fee of $45 applies if this time requirement is not met
  • we will be actively modifying office policies and procedures for the safety of staff and patients to reflect the latest scientific knowledge
  • you can browse our frames prior to your visit using our virtual try-on

It may be required to conduct a dilated fundus or retinal exam – your pupils will be dilated and you will experience some blurred vision and light sensitivity for up to 3 hours after your exam, so having a pair of sunglasses or a driver is advisable. If this is not possible, a second visit may be required to complete all testing. Patients most likely to require same-day dilation include diabetics, seniors, patients with very small pupils, lazy eye, those with high myopia or nearsightedness, patients complaining of sudden vision loss, flashes, or floaters.

We look forward to serving you and all of your eye care needs. To learn about common eye conditions and their treatment, click here.
