What to expect during your appointment

During your first visit, our team performs a detailed eye examination and conducts a variety of tests to help us pinpoint the exact nature of your problem. Making an accurate diagnosis is critical in identifying any risk of permanent visual loss or life-threatening disorders, or ruling out more serious conditions. Once we have arrived at a diagnosis, we will discuss your individualized treatment plan with you. Because of the of the detailed and sometimes complex nature of the conditions we treat, please be prepared that initial appointments with our team may take several hours. The time between you and our providers helps insure you receive an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan.
