Dear Patients,

Both offices are now open and In order to avoid crowding and to stay on top of additional disinfection procedures, appointment slots will be limited. What you can expect:

  1. Face coverings required, non-touch temperature reading, hand washing upon arrival.
  2. Disinfection of touch surfaces in addition to our usual sanitation procedures as well as barrier films on certain high-touch areas.
  3. Digital frame measurement technologies for all spectacle orders to replace face-to-face measurements.
  4. On-site, but non-facing payment options.
  5. Elimination of paper and electronic forms in the office.

Your cooperation in completing medical questionnaires at home, prior to your visit, is greatly appreciated. Also while we welcome patients along with one guardian when needed, additional friends and family members who do not have an appointment may be asked to wait outside. We’re all excited to see you soon.

In General

From start to finish, your entire vision and eye health evaluation will take 30-40 minutes.  This includes reviewing your vision and medical history, special diagnostic testing with a technician, prescription determination and complete eye health evaluation with the doctor and consultation time when the doctor will review with you all your test results and recommended treatments.  Before you leave, the doctor will make sure all your questions and concerns are addressed.

If you wear glasses, please bring with you all glasses that you currently use or are having problems with, including sunglasses.  If you wear contact lenses, please either wear or bring your contact lenses with you.

In order to fully examine the internal health of your eyes, your pupils will likely be dilated.  Most patients find that the gentle combination of drops we use do not result in blurred vision, but you may be sensitive to sunlight if it is bright and sunny outdoors.  You are encouraged to bring your sunglasses with you and we also have complimentary sun shades that you can take home.  If you prefer to not have your pupils dilated at a specific visit, simply let the staff know and we will accommodate your schedule.
