Preparing For Your Visit

Appointments may be arranged at any of our locations during regular office hours.  There is a physician on call to take emergency calls at any time.

When you call our office for an appointment, briefly tell the receptionist about your eye problem so that the proper amount of time can be allotted for your appointment, and let us know if you have previously been seen in any of our offices.

If you need any special assistance for your visit, for example, use of a wheel chair or special translating needs, please make the receptionist aware when making your appointment.

Bring the following items with you to your initial appointment:

  • Prescription glasses if you wear them
  • Any eye drops you are currently taking
  • All your insurance cards
  • Driver's License / Photo ID
  • Insurance referral forms, if needed (HMO patients)
  • Guardian or Power of Attorney authorization documentation, if applicable 
  • Medications - the containers or a list of all medications you are currently using
  • Names and addresses of other doctors you are currently seeing
  • Something to eat if you are diabetic
  • A driver -  to drive you home from your appointment because your pupils will be dilated
  • Sunglasses- because your eyes will be sensitive to light while your pupils are dilated
