What to Expect

During your visit, you will be seen by one of our orthoptists who will assess your vision, note your medical history and perform testing as required by the ophthalmologist. You will then by seen by one of our ophthalmologists who will examine your eyes. As part of a full eye examination, your pupils may be dilated. This means that you should not drive for two hours. Please brings sunglasses if you have them as this will help with glare.

Please call us during business hours and allow at least 1 days’ notice so that we can offer your appointment time to patients on our waiting list.
