What to Expect

Upon your arrival, you will be greeted by our friendly staff.  We ask that you please sign in at the front desk.  If you are a new patient, we will request that present your insurance card, driver’s license and complete our new patient paperwork. If you wish, you may print and complete the new patient paperwork from the link below in the Patient Forms section of this page prior to your arrival.  We request that you come prepared to pay your Co-pay.

A nurse or ophthalmic technician will call your name from the waiting area to begin your examination.  All patients should expect to be dilated. Note:  if you feel uncomfortable driving while dilated please arrange necessary transportation.   After your eyes are dilated, you will be called to see the doctor.  Your visit will include comprehensive care from our doctors, any diagnostic procedures, and same day treatment if necessary.

This entire process may take several hours.  We ask that you please be as patient as possible.  Our experienced doctors and staff all have one goal – to help you keep SIGHT of what’s important.
