For Patients

Our goals are to precisely define the nature of your eye problem and to initiate treatment promptly, whether it is medical or surgical. In addition to an eye examination, special testing may be required to determine your diagnosis and prognosis. We have found it beneficial for most patients to complete their examination and testing on a single day. For some, it may be necessary to return on another day for completion of the evaluation.
