What should I do before my visit?

  • Check that there will be no problems with your insurance provider

What should I bring to my visit?

  • Co-pay - can be paid with cash, check, Visa, or Mastercard
  • Insurance card

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 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.
