What will my exam be like?
During your first visit, we will collect information about your eyes. Then we will combine objective and subjective information, diagnose the problem, and create a plan to correct the problem.
We will carefully listen to your needs and answer all your questions. We will make sure you feel comfortable and are well informed as to your options before we choose a course of action together.
Our insurance specialist will gather your insurance information, contact the company, and act as liaison to determine the extent of your benefits, to ensure there are no surprises.
Lifestyle prescribing is an art. We need to develop a knowledge of the person as a whole- It is different for everyone. Since it takes into account all aspects and elements of the person, we will also gather a full history in order to piece together the puzzle, to view a full picture in your unique case. For instance: Do you work on a computer? Do you work in the sun? Do you find yourself outside or inside most of the day? Is night driving difficult? Basically, how do you use your eyes?
You will be given a painless comprehensive eye exam that includes, but is not limited to: determining your current vision prescription, and looking at the overall health of the eye – inside and out. As part of the exam, your pupils will be dilated so that we can get a good look at the interior of your eye. This process is painless and simply results in a couple of hours worth of needing to wear sunglasses as your eyes readjust to the dilation. Most people who receive dilation need no assistance in driving home from the exam.
After you meet with the eye doctor, and he has answered all of your questions, you will be informed of the next steps which will include a treatment plan.
After that, depending on whether or not you will be receiving glasses or contact lenses etc, you will be directed out into our eyeglass boutique where you can choose from and try on frames that fit your personal style.
