First Visit with Us
We encourage you to download and print these “New Patient Forms” ahead of time. Please complete it and bring it with you to your scheduled appointment. Otherwise, please come in 10 minutes before your scheduled appointment time to fill out the registration forms and read important information about your visit. The first visit will generally last half an hour or longer if your eyes are dilated.
Fees & Insurances
We accept most major medical and vision plans and we are happy to assist you in billing them on your behalf. Most plans have some sort of copayment, coinsurance, and/or deductible which will be your responsibility and due at the time of service, including any services not covered by your insurance. We will try our best to determine your eligibility and benefits on your behalf, however we encourage you to try to understand your own insurance so there aren’t any surprises.
Please note that failure to provide 24 hours of notice of an appointment cancellation may result in a $40 cancellation fee.
We prefer to dilate your eyes at the initial visit, but we are happy to reschedule you for another time if it is more convenient. Dilation is a procedure that opens up your pupils with special eye drops which allows the doctor to examine the inside of your eyes in more detail. Please bring sunglasses and someone to drive if you feel uncomfortable driving when dilated.
What to Bring to Your Visit if Possible
- Most recent glasses and/or contact lenses, including a copy of your prescription. The contact lens information from the box or packaging is sufficient.
- Medical and vision insurance cards.
- List of your current medications and dosage.
- Sunglasses for the drive home in case your eyes are dilated.
