For Eye Patients Visiting Us

bullet

    If you have been referred from the emergency room bring in 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.

bullet

   Bring with you eye drops or ointment that you are using.

bullet

   Have a list of other medications you are taking, drug allergies and significant non-ophthalmic conditions or surgeries.

bullet

   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.

bullet

   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. 

bullet

   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.

bullet

    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.

bullet

    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.
