We understand that your first visit to the eye doctor can feel overwhelming and we try to accommodate all new patients with a comfortable and organized facility.

Our staff has taken the steps to prepare you for the first appointment by providing a full spectrum of the services we offer and the option to complete our new patient form prior to your visit. Our goal is to cover everything you need with a full and efficient assessment, but without waiting to see the doctor.

Please bring the following to your appointment so that we can properly assess your needs and give you the best experience possible. If you are unable to fill out the forms in advance, please arrive at our office 15 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment time.


What to Expect

Expect respectful, professional help. As your eye care provider, we will strive to make your eye exam as easy and thorough as possible.

We also want your experience with us to be as educational as possible. We welcome all questions regarding your eyes, health, eyeglasses, and contact lenses.

We start the comprehensive eye exam by taking a full patient history. Several eye and vision-related problems can be associated with other health conditions. Please be sure to include your complete vision and medical history, as well as any conditions that may run in your family. Knowing what conditions are in your family can help the doctor know what you might be at risk for.

Next, we will begin preliminary testing, which includes the following:
1- Visual acuities (how well a patient sees)
2- Eye pressure testing (measures the patient’s intraocular pressures;
helps us screen to glaucoma risk factors)
3- Cover test (examines how well the eyes work together
4- Manual visual field testing
5- Refraction (glasses prescription testing)
6- Slit lamp exam (evaluation of internal and external eye health)
7- Pupil dilation and/or Eidon retinal exam

Additionally, we may complete an evaluation of your retina.

We have implemented a customized approach for every patient. With all of your tests, the doctor can fully evaluate the health of your eyes. Protecting your vision is critical so scheduling an eye exam once a year is essential. With routine eye exams, not only can you potentially see better, but you may be able to avoid vision loss or distortion.
