An annual eye examination is important to maintaining the health of your eyes as many ocular diseases can go undetected without routine eye care. A comprehensive exam can detect most common eye diseases such as cataract, glaucoma, and macular degeneration so they may be treated, thus preserving your precious vision. Patients with underlying medical illness such as diabetes, hypertension, and arthritis, also require careful ocular examination to detect changes in the eyes associated with these conditions.
If you are a new patient, you should plan to spend 1 and ½ to 2 hours in our office. Your eyes will be dilated, blurring the vision for several hours, so we recommend bringing a driver.
Please bring a list of your current medications and any referral information or pertinent past medical records along with you. Also, please bring your glasses, contact lenses, and information about the contacts, including brand, base curve and power.
