Frequently Asked Questions
How long will the appointment take?
Will I be able to drive home after my exam?
In many cases, your eyes will be dilated for your exam. If your eyes are dilated, your near vision will be blurred but your distance vision should be OK for driving. Your eyes will be sensitive to light. We suggest you bring your sunglasses.
What if I wear contact lenses?
If you have an eye infection, you should NOT be wearing your contact lenses from the time the symptoms start until they are resolved. After the infection clears, a new set of lenses should be used. (Please bring your contact lens parameters in with you).
