Comprehensive Eye Exam
Patients being seen for a comprehensive medical eye exam should plan on being in our office 60 to 90 minutes. During this time, your eyes will be dilated and you will receive a refraction that will allow your physician to determine the need for a prescription for glasses and/or contacts. Your ophthalmologist will also perform routine medical testing during your visit. Additional testing may be needed as decided by your physician.
Your first visit may last three to four hours, depending on the need for special testing and treatment. We suggest that someone drive you to and from our office since both of your eyes will be dilated for your examination. Some reading material and snack can be helpful. If treatment of one of your eyes is required, that eye may be patched overnight.
A retinal exam includes a thorough, complete evaluation of your eye by your physician including the retina, optic nerve and retinal blood vessels.
We offer transportation services to Lane County patients undergoing surgery. Our driver will pick you up at your front door and will see you safely back upon your release from the surgery center.
Translators are available in nearly any language to help you during your visit. Your translator will assist with paperwork, communication and any questions you have for our staff and physicians during your appointment.
