Preparing For Your Eye Exam
Come Prepared For Your Exam to Get the Most out of Your Visit
We have implemented office procedures to ensure the safety and health of you and our staff. In the interest of safety and to make efficient use of your exam time, please read the following:
- new patients should register in advance using this Registration Form
- allow at least 60 minutes in your schedule at the time of your appointment
- please arrive 10 minutes before your exam time to allow for parking and pretesting
- please bring only 1 family member if necessary when accompanying a minor, language barriers exist, or if the patient requires extra assistance
- bring any eyeglasses you use or last prescribed to your appointment
- if you use contact lenses, bring any relevant info with you, but it is best to wear your eyeglasses for the exam
- bring a list of all your current medications

- new patients with a diagnosis of diabetes need to provide proof in the form of their medications or a referral letter from their doctor prior to the appointment
- if you require any forms filled, please email them at the time of booking your appointment
- check your vision insurance before your visit, as we direct bill only. Any services or products not covered by third-party insurers are the responsibility of the patient at the time of their visit
- we can direct bill in most cases, but sometimes payments are made directly to the patient, so the patient will be responsible for any fees for services rendered at the time of your visit; a minimum 50% deposit is required for all products, and 100% payment for services rendered
- eyeglasses and customized contact lenses can not be canceled once order has been placed
- bring a list of questions/concerns and present them at the start of your exam
- if you are interested in contact lenses, laser eye surgery, or any other special considerations, please bring this to the attention of our staff at the time of booking
- 24-hour notice is required for canceling or rescheduling appointments. A $60 fee applies if this criterion is not met.
- Free Parking available on weekends and weekdays after 4pm
- we offer and recommend digital retinal imaging to aid in the evaluation and monitoring of retinal and optic nerve health

At the time of your exam, it may be required to conduct a dilated retinal exam. This means your pupils will be dilated and you will experience blurred vision and light sensitivity for up to 3 hours after your exam. Having a pair of sunglasses or a driver is advisable in these circumstances. If this is not possible, a second visit may be required to complete all testing – fees apply. Patients most likely to require same-day dilation include patients with diabetes, seniors, patients with very small pupils, lazy eye, those with high myopia or nearsightedness, retinal disease, optic nerve disease, patients complaining of sudden vision loss, flashes and/or floaters, etc.
