FOR YOUR APPOINTMENT

What to bring...

You should bring the following to your office visit.

  • A list of medications (including eye drops and supplements) that the patient already uses

  • Glasses and optical prescription (if available) used by the patient

  • Insurance cards

  • A form of ID

In addition, please bring anything that your child enjoys to make them comfortable and relaxed. Though we have a few toys and distractions in the office, we find that children are most comfortable with what they are most familiar.

 

What to expect...

The first new patient appointment usually varies from an hour to two, then other established appointments can vary from 45 minutes to an hour and a half depending on whether or not your child requires dilation. Although we try our hardest to maintain flow in our office appointments, there are times when we get backed up. We try our hardest to inform our patients and families of any delays.

 

After the appointment...

Depending on the type of drops used and how much was actually absorbed into the eyes, your child's eyes will stay dilated for 6 hours to 2 weeks. You can always ask which type of drops were used and we can let you know how long you can expect them to affect the eyes. The most common drop(s) we use in the office usually lasts for 6 hours. Near vision and photosensitivity are most affected and patients may complain that things are blurry or that they cannot see.
