Vitreous Retina Macula Consultants uses the latest technology to ensure you are receiving the highest standard of care. However, a retinal examination takes longer than the average general eye exam. From initial work up, diagnostic testing, and thorough examination by board certified retina specialist, a new patient can expect to be in our office for a minimum of two-to-three hours.
Arrive at least fifteen (15) minutes prior to your scheduled appointment time with your identification, health insurance cards, and any referrals/medical records available to you.
Mostly likely both eyes will be dilated at each visit.
Most patients are able to drive after dilation, although you may prefer to bring a family member/friend along with you or arrange for transportation.
