Exam Day Information

What to expect on exam day

You made an appointment?  Congratulations!  We can’t wait to see you.  In an effort to make your visit as efficient as possible, a few housekeeping items for your consideration:

  • Please have your medical and vision plan ID cards with you.  Each plan covers different aspects of your care.  Please contact us if you have questions about your coverage.
  • If you are a new patient, please try to arrive 5-10 minutes in advance of your appointment to complete registration procedures. If you have already received these materials via mail or our website, please try to arrive at your scheduled appointment time.
  • Anticipate having your eyes dilated. This will allow your ocular health to be fully evaluated during your examination. After your exam, expect a slight sensitivity to sunlight and an inability to focus for near work (ie. reading) for 2-3 hours. Although most patients are comfortable driving afterwards, we do recommend you have a driver available should you feel incapable and sunglasses for comfort.
  • Expect to spend about 1 hour in our office for your comprehensive examination. This will include your exam, frame selection and fitting, and any registration/billing procedures.
