We feel that it's important to outline the process so you can feel comfortable knowing what to expect.
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.
