  • What forms do I need to fill out?
    For your first appointment, please arrive 15 minutes early to complete necessary health forms. You may also request forms to be emailed to you prior to your exam.
  • Will my eyes get dilated?
    In order for your eye doctor to view the entire retina and optic nerve, the pupil must be dilated. For most patients, eye dilation will be done at the first appointment. Subsequently, eye dilation is recommended every other year, but may be recommended at every annual appointment for some patients with certain conditions or specific medical diagnoses. After the exam, you may experience increased light sensitivity and blurriness. The effects of dilation generally last 4 to 6 hours. If you’ve not had your eyes dilated previously or are uncomfortable driving after the procedure, please make alternative driving arrangements. It is recommended that you bring sunglasses with you to protect from increased light sensitivity until the effects wear off. We also have complimentary shades available for your convenience. If you have any unanswered questions, please call us or ask at your appointment.
  • What happens if I miss or have to cancel my appointment?
    We understand that situations come up where you need to reschedule your appointment. We kindly ask that you provide us with at least 24 hours notice if you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment. Any missed appointments or cancelations done within 24 hours of your appointment will be charged a $40 no show fee.
  • Are masks or face coverings required?
    Masks are not required for your doctor visit or optical appointment, however the staff may ask you to briefly wear a provided mask during close contact eye measurements. If you are experiencing any signs of illness, we kindly ask that you do not enter the office and re-schedule your appointment. The office reserves the right to ask any patient to reschedule their exam if they show visible signs of illness.
