Some tests are done at our office before you see the doctor.  These are designed to give the doctor some important information to help him/her better understand the condition of your eyes and vision.  Our well trained clinic staff is responsible for this aspect of your examination called pretesting.  They are also responsible for guiding you through some tests the doctor may feel are necessary after the examination such as visual field testing, digital retinal photographs and contact lens instruction.

As part of our COVID-19 protocol we are now requiring our patients to undergo an Optomap Retinal exam in lieu of dilation to evaluate the inside lining of the eye. This procedure is being performed to lessen the time spent in our office. There is an additional fee of $35.00 for this test which is often not covered by insurance plans as it is considered a health screening. However, it can be billed to a medical insurance plan if there is a retinal disease diagnosis. Please speak to our staff for more information.
