New Patients: What to Expect

At your initial appointment, your physician will listen to any difficulties you are having with your vision, and will ask about prior eye and health problems. Please bring a copy of your eyecare medical record, if available. Prior to seeing the doctor, a technician will measure your vision and eye pressure, and administer eye dilating drops. Dilation of the pupils is necessary so that your retina specialist can observe and examine structures inside the eye. YOUR EYES WILL NEED ABOUT 30 MINUTES TO DILATE. We have access to the most current medical technology at the Illinois Eye and Ear Infirmary. Your physician may need to perform one or more types of medical imaging ('eye photographs') in order to obtain the information necessary to formulate an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan. Please plan on your initial visit requiring up to 2 1/2 hours. If you require an office-based treatment procedure and choose to proceed on the same day, please plan accordingly.
