What will happen if I have a dilated exam?

How long will my appointment take?
On a typical day, for a non-dilated exam (pink eye, dry eye, allergies, for example), plan for 30-40 minutes. For a dilated exam (cataracts, floaters, diabetes, for example), plan for an hour and a half. New patients or patients who have not been seen in the past six months (since we started Electronic Medical Records) should expect 10-15 additional minutes to complete paperwork.
What if I have to cancel my appointment?
Please give us 24 hours of notice if you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment.
