To help prepare for your upcoming appointment, please review the following information. If at all possible, print out the new patient forms on this website, complete the information, and bring the forms with you to your appointment. If you are not able to complete the forms at home, we will ask you to fill them out upon arrival at our office.

  • Your eyes will likely be dilated with eye drops to make the pupil (dark central opening in the eye) large enough to view the retina in the back part of the eye.
  • Dilation will cause your vision to be very blurry, especially in bright light. Driving may be difficult, therefore we recommend that you bring someone with you to drive you home after your appointment.
  • Diagnostic testing may be recommended to help determine your exact retinal condition and the most appropriate treatment options.
  • If you have been told that you may need surgery the same day of your appointment, do not eat or drink anything after midnight the night before.
  • We must have a copy of all of your insurance cards and a photo ID (driver’s license/government ID/passport/etc.) upon arrival to our office.
  • If you do not speak English, an interpreter will be provided if we are advised of this need in advance of your appointment.
  • All copays must be paid at the time of your appointment. If you do not have insurance, someone from our Billing Department will discuss payment options with you prior to your appointment. Our Billing Policy provides more information.

We look forward to seeing you soon! Please call us if you have any questions not answered on this site.
