For Eye Patients Visiting Us
If you have been referred from the emergency room bring
their discharge instruction sheet. If you are referred
from another physician's office a note or your personal knowledge
regarding the issue that is prompting your visit will often save phone calls.
Bring with you eye drops or ointment that you are using.
Have a list of other medications you are
taking, drug allergies and significant non-ophthalmic conditions or surgeries.
When possible bring a driver as we often dilate your
pupils and this can make it more difficult to see for several hours after the exam. This is particularly important if you can not see
properly because of incorrect
glasses or ocular disease.
If you are a contact lens wearer bring in your contact lens
care kit and case if you have one. If you have glasses bring them in
even if they are broken as it is useful to know what you are used to wearing.
When you are transferring from another practitioner bring
in previous treatment records if they are easily obtainable. If you do not
have them and we need them for ongoing care you will be asked to fill out a
record release request form.
If you have questions write them down and bring them with
you. At the completion of the exam we ask if you have any and this is a good time
to address them. If you remember one you
forgot call our office and we will
return your call.
When new patients arrive they are requested to fill out a one-page form. If you wish, print it, and bring it in completed. Click on your Browser Back Button to return here after printing the page. Currently we are not having forms filled out online because of privacy considerations.
