What to Expect
Appointments may be arranged by calling our office during the hours listed below. When you call our office for an appointment, briefly explain your eye problem to the receptionist so that the proper amount of time can be allotted for your appointment. Also, please tell the receptionist if you will require any special help for your visit. Typically, your first visit may take at least two hours and will consist of a complete eye examination. Your pupils may be dilated with eye drops during the exam. Because your eyes may be blurry from the eye drops, we strongly recommend that you bring a driver for your return home from the appointment. Your doctor will discuss the results of your exam, available treatment options and answer any questions you might have.
