What To Expect
If you are a new patient we will require you to complete a new patient form on arrival.
New patients will require dilating drops for the initial examination. This will blur your vision and make you sensitive to light for a few hours. Therefore, we recommend it is best to not drive yourself home from your appointment.
Your visit will take an hour or more depending on your specific condition. If you require additional diagnostic tests this will extend the length of your appointment.
