About Your Visit
As a patient to our practice, we would like to offer you a warm welcome and our thanks for trusting us with your precious eyesight! To help us provide the best possible care and most efficient use of your time, please bring these items to your appointment:
- Completed Forms: This information includes information needed to establish your file. Your responses will guide our doctors and staff, and help us to address any significant issues during your visit.
- Insurance Cards (Medical and Vision Plans): As a free service to you, we will help you learn what benefits may be available to you beforehand and submit your claims to insurance.
- Eyeglasses: Please bring ALL pairs of eyeglasses you currently use, including prescription or non-prescription reading glasses, sunglasses, etc.
- Contact Lenses: It is best NOT to wear your current contacts to your appointment. Please bring them in a case, and any carton or lens packets you have that indicate the lens series, power and manufacturer.
- List of Medications, Including Eye Drops: Please place any eye drops or ointments that you use in a small bag and bring it along with you.
The doctor may need to use drops to dilate your eyes in order to fully evaluate their internal health. This has the effect of temporarily increasing sensitivity to light and causing “fuzzy” vision at a near (reading) distance. Therefore, if you want new eyewear or feel you may need to select new eyewear, please come 15 to 20 minutes before your appointment time in order to review your frame selection options with our experienced, caring optical consultants. Sometimes, having an Optomap retinal scan can take the place of a dilated exam… Ask our receptionist for details!
