We feel that it's important to outline the process so you can feel comfortable knowing what to expect.
As always, you and your family's health and safety is our top priority. All the measures we have put in place are to protect you and our community and allow for the most relaxing experience in our office. Therefore, we have put the following measures in place for the best service and safety.
You + 1 Guest: We are limiting the number of people allowed in our office at one time.
All in-person visits will be scheduled: Whether you need eyeglass repairs, order pick-up, or adjustments, our team will be scheduling all interactions.
Wear a mask: All staff will be wearing masks throughout your visit, we ask that you do the same.
Patient Forms: Before your next exam, please make sure you fill out and submit our online forms.
Upon your arrival, our receptionist will welcome you as a member of our practice.
Our staff will be cleaning frequently used items consistently and washing their hands throughout your visit.
Next, one of our friendly technicians will take you to the testing area. They will perform an assessment of your vision, an estimate of your new glasses prescription, a digital image of your retina, and color vision and depth perception tests. The technician will provide this information to the doctor.
The doctor will then finish the exam by refining your glasses prescription and discussing your vision needs with work, school, or hobbies. The doctor will also look thoroughly at the health of the inside and outside of the eyes. You will be checked for any early indicators of possible eye disorders, such as cataracts, macular degeneration, retinal problems, and glaucoma. The doctor will review your results with you and provide recommendations for eyeglasses, contact lenses, and health treatment if necessary. Now you are ready to select your new eyeglasses or try contact lenses!
Remember the following for your next eye doctor visit:
Know your medical history and list of current medications. Your systemic health can impact your eyes.
Know your current symptoms and be able to describe them - write them down if necessary
Know your family history - some eye diseases like glaucoma and cataracts are hereditary
Bring your insurance card, identification, and method of payment, if necessary
Bring your most recent prescription for glasses or contact lenses
If undergoing dilation bring sunglasses, for after your appointment. Also be prepared to have blurry vision, especially at near, for 4-6 hours.
