What will happen if I have a dilated exam?
If you have floaters or are here for your annual exam, you can expect to be dilated
Some have experienced difficulty driving after dilation. Therefore, it's best to bring someone who can give you a ride home.
Bring sunglasses for dilated exams
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 two years (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.
