Your First Visit to see a Retina Specialist?

If this is your first time to see a retina specialist, your appointment will be detailed and will take at least two to four hours. Your eye(s) will probably be dilated so you may want to bring a pair of comfortable sun glasses. The office will supply you with some temporary glasses if you forget. You may wish to come 15 minutes early to fill out the appropriate paper work.

The length of your appointment can vary based on the complexity of your eye condition.The average appointment length is two hours for established patients and may take up to 4 hours for new patients in order for us to properly evaluate and treat your condition. As unpredictable emergencies are sent to us for our immediate attention, our appointment schedule at times can be delayed.

What should you bring to your visit?

  • Questions you may have for the doctor
  • “New Patient” forms completed before arriving
  • Your current eyeglasses or contacts
  • A list of your medications, including eye drops and vitamins
  • List and dates of past medical issues and surgical procedures
  • List of doctors you are seeing and the referring doctor’s name
  • A copy of your insurance card and a photo ID, such as a driver’s license
  • Copay payment due at time of service OR $750 initial deposit for self pay patients due at check-in by cash or credit card only
