FAQ 

TOP 6 QUESTIONS WE HEAR FROM PATIENTS
Does your office accept my insurance?

Our office accepts a multitude of both medical and vision plans.  Most plans offer a patient friendly website  to check your benefits and to find a doctor within your plan.  If you are still unsure, you can always ask your human resources department for help, or call our office and we would be happy to help you find your plan information.  

Why is my contact lens Rx only good for one year?

Contact lenses are a medical divice placed directly on the surface of the eye.  It is important that the fit of the lenses and the health of the eye is monitored regularly. 

 

Do I have to have my eyes dilated?

Dilation is the most effective way to monitor for ocular and systemic diseases that affect the retina.  To maintain a high quality of care, we do recommend dilation to every patient.

 

 

 

Can I drive with my eyes dilated?

Yes, you can still drive after dilation, however, your eyes will be sensitive to light so bring some sunglasses along for the ride home.  If you are uncomfortable driving after dilation, feel free to bring a driver with you.

 

How long will the dilation last?

Typically, the affects of the dilation drops will last about 4-6 hours after instillation, however, some patients have noted longer time frames.

How long does an exam take?

You can expect to be at our office for about an hour.  This time allows for the complete exam, and the fitting of contact lenses or glasses selection.
