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.
- You + 1 Guest: We are limiting the number of people allowed in our office at one time. We ask that you bring a maximum of one guest to your next exam.
- All in-person visits will be scheduled: whether you're needing eyeglass repairs, picking up an order, or needing an adjustment, our team will be scheduling all interactions. This ensures all patients will be met with the best-personalized service and safety.
- Wear a mask: All staff will be wearing masks throughout your visit, we ask that you do the same.
- Hands-Free Forms: Before your next exam, please make sure you fill out and submit our online forms. This way your next visit will be faster and minimize patient to staff handoffs.
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 a test using dilation eye drops, bring proper eye protection, like sunglasses, for after your appointment
