Home/Day Of Visit

Your time is important to us and we appreciate you taking a few minutes to ensure you have everything you need for your visit.

A parent/guardian is required to bring the child to the initial consultation. This will include a thorough examination including questions about family history, medications, and previous treatments (if any). The eyes will be dilated for this examination which may take from 1 1/2 – 2 hours.

Because of the length and complexity of the examination, please allow sufficient time for the visit between your other obligations or appointments, and adequate travel time to arrive promptly.

Comprehensive general eye evaluations are also available for children. These include referrals from your doctor’s office or school for failed vision screening.

If you cannot make your scheduled appointment, please call the office at least 24 hours in advance.
