Prior to your first visit with us, please be sure to bring your current eyeglasses or contact lenses (please bring your lens case and solution so you can remove your lenses if required), a list of the medications you are taking, as well as your Health Card. Depending on your specific needs, your initial visit will last approximately one to two hours. During this first visit, we will record your medical history and information, and perform all of the tests we need to get a complete picture of your ocular health. After our tests, we will discuss the results with you, as well as how treatments should proceed.
Please note that these tests may require us to dilate your pupils, which will make your eyes sensitive to light, and will distort your vision slightly. These effects are normal, and usually subside after a few hours after the appointment. You should plan to bring something to shield the sun from your eyes after your appointment, such as sunglasses. Many of our patients also bring someone to drive them home.
