About Your First Visit
First visits usually take approximately 60-90 minutes. Dilation of your eyes may be required for the examination. Since the effects of dilation can take several hours to wear off, it's best that you arrange for someone else to drive you after your appointment.
You should take the following items with you to the appointment:
- List of medications and eye drops, including over-the-counter medications
- Glasses and contact lenses
- Insurance cards (medical and vision)
- Referral form (if applicable)
We participate with Medicare, Blue Shield, most HMO's, and many commercial insurances. Co- payments and deductibles, as well as charges for refraction and other non-covered services will be collected at the time of the office visit. Payments may be made in cash, personal check, Master Card, Visa or Discover.
Our staff would be happy to submit a claim on your behalf for eye care services. Be sure to bring your insurance information along when you visit. If you do not have your insurance card or referral you may reschedule the appointment until such information is received or you may pay for the visit in full at the time of service.
