On your first visit with us, bring your glasses and a list of medications you may be taking. Please bring your insurance card and if you are an HMO patient, you will need to have your referral form from your primary doctor. You will be asked to complete a medical history and information form. A complete examination can take approximately one to two hours and may include an examination for glasses called a refraction*. Dilating or pupil enlarging drops may be used to enable the doctor to see the inside of the eye. These drops may cause temporary blurring of vision and sensitivity to bright light. Please bring sunglasses and someone able drive you home.
*Most major medical insurances will not pay for refraction and you will be responsible for this charge.
