Preparing for Your Appointment
Duration of Appointment
Ophthalmology appointments last about 60 minutes. During the appointment, you will receive a comprehensive eye exam, and will most likely have your eyes dilated with eye drops.
What to Bring
At the initial visit, the ophthalmologist will need to know about your general health. Be sure to tell the doctor or the clinical staff about:
- Medical problems
- Surgical procedures
- Medications that you are taking
- A list of any questions you would like addressed by the doctor
Your ophthalmologist will review findings and present a comprehensive treatment plan for you. He or she will discuss future therapy and/or appointments at this time.
