A comprehensive(routine) eye examination with an optometrist usually takes 45-60 minutes. For an exam with our Ophthalmologist, please allow for up to two hours for your total appointment, as the medical doctor may perform additional testing and spend more time with each patient to fully understand their eye health.
We participate with VSP, EyeMed Insight Network, and PVCS (Primary Vision Care Service) for routine eye exams. Check with our staff if you have other types of coverage. You will be financially responsible for payment of all co-pays, deductibles, and non-covered services.
Medical Exam will be billed through your medical insurance.
We will check your vision and ocular health. You will be asked questions that relate to any problems you may have. Measurements will help determine any need for corrective wear such as contact lenses or glasses. Your ocular health will be checked for things such as cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration, or other disorders. Eye drops may be used to enlarge (dilate) your pupils. Medication may be prescribed for ocular problems, or a referral to our ophthalmologist or another specialist may be suggested for conditions requiring further intervention, such as cataracts.
Most people should get their eyes tested once a year. If you have had a sudden loss of vision, a change in vision in one or both of your eyes, or if your eyes are red or painful call our office to quickly be seen by one of our physicians.
Bring your insurance card, identification, and method of payment.
Bring a current list of any medications.
Bring your most recent prescription glasses or contact lenses or contact lens boxes.
Bring Sunglasses, for after your appointment in case you're dilated for your exam (we will provide disposable sunshades if you forget).
It will be helpful for you to know your medical history and any family eye health history.
-Most importantly, remember that the eye doctors, and all staff members are there to help you.
