For a first appointment, you should bring the following items:
- Any glasses the patient has been prescribed to wear
- Any medical records you have from a previous eye doctor
- Any records regarding the patient’s general health you’d like us to know about
- Any eye medications the patient is using
- If you observe a misalignment of your child’s eye in photographs, bring the photos to the clinic appointment in order to show Dr. Fazilat
For every appointment:
If your child has been prescribed a pair of glasses, please bring them to every appointment, even if they are broken, scratched, or old. If the glasses are broken and you don’t know whether to fix them before or after the exam, call us – we’re happy to help!
What should I expect at the first appointment?
We recommend arriving 10-15 minutes prior to your appointment time. This will allow enough time to fill out new patient forms. Almost all new patients will have their eyes dilated. Dilation will require 30-35 minutes of waiting time for its affect to take place. Please note that the initial visit will take approximately 2 hours in total.
What to expect at follow up appointments?
Most follow up appointments are much shorter than first appointments. Typically patients get dilated once a year. Dilation will require 30-35 minutes waiting time for its affect to take place. This may increase the duration of follow up visits
