What to Expect at Your First Visit

Appointments may be arranged by calling our office during the hours listed on our website. When you call our office for an appointment, briefly explain your eye problem to the receptionist so that the proper amount of time can be allotted for your appointment. Also, please tell the receptionist if you will require any special help for your visit. Typically, your first visit will take at least two hours and will consist of a complete eye examination. Your pupils will be dilated with eye drops during the exam. Because your eyes may be blurry from the eye drops, we strongly recommend that you bring a driver for your return home from the appointment. Your doctor will discuss the results of your exam, available treatment options and answer any questions you might have.
