Appointments
& Preparation for Your Visits

Normal office hours are Monday through Friday 8:30 AM to 5:00 PM. For your convenience we can schedule an early morning appointment starting at 7:30 AM.

If your condition warrants immediate attention, please let us know and we will accommodate you.

If you are unable to keep your appointment or expect to be late, please call our office as soon as possible. This courtesy allows us to better serve other patients. Patients providing less than 24 hours notice of cancellation of appointments will be charged a missed visit fee.

Spectacle eyeglass wearers should bring all currently used eyeglasses and sunglasses with them to the examination. Contact lens wearers are also urged to bring their most current eyeglasses, as well as their present contact lenses. The examination process may involve dilation of the pupils which increases light sensitivity. Patients are therefore advised to bring a pair of sunglasses if possible (temporary ones are available). Please anticipate that dilation of the pupils will add an additional 30 minutes to examination duration.
