Due to the specialized nature of retinal eye exams, please consider the following:
What to Expect: Your first visit may take approximately two to three hours due to the complex nature of some retinal diseases and will include a comprehensive examination and evaluation of your retina. Prior to seeing your physician, you will first meet with an experienced ophthalmic technician who will take your medical history, check vision and screening tests, and administer drops to dilate your pupils.
What to Bring: Please bring a list of your medications for us to review. You may also need to have a retinal photography such as an OCT or a fluorescein angiogram to aid your diagnosis and monitor changes in your condition. This may require additional time in the office.
What Happens Next: Following a diagnosis and a thorough explanation of your condition and treatment options, you may require medical treatment on your first visit for some urgent retinal conditions.
