What to Bring the Day of Your Appointment:New Patient Forms | Medical Eye Care Associates

Please print out and complete your New Patient Forms and bring them with you on the day of your appointment. Please bring with you your current medical and vision care insurance cards, a current list of your medications and doctors, any eye drops that you are taking, your current eye glasses, and current contact lens and/or eye glass prescriptions. It is also a good idea to bring a pair of sunglasses, in case it is necessary for the doctor to do a dilated exam of your eyes.

If you are having a contact lens exam, please wear your current contact lenses so that the doctor can evaluate them on your eyes, and bring your glasses with you.

What to Expect:

Some or all of the following may be included in your eye exam with us, depending on the reason for your visit: A complete medical and eye history, vision testing, a new eye glass or contact lens prescription if appropriate, and a comprehensive exam of the structures and function of the eyes. If you are coming for a retinal evaluation, or if the doctor determines at the time of your visit that a more detailed examination of the retina is needed, your pupils will be dilated with eye drops. With dilation, most people experience a few hours of light sensitivity, difficulty with near vision, and occasionally difficulty with distance vision. In some people, the effects of dilation can last several hours. Please bring a pair of sunglasses with you in case it is necessary for the doctor to dilate your eyes. If you are not comfortable with the idea of driving after a dilated exam, you may prefer to bring someone to drive you home.

Additional testing and/or follow up appointments may be needed. At the conclusion of your exam, you are welcome to visit our Optical Shop located on the premises, where one of our experienced and friendly opticians will be happy to assist you with your eye wear needs, and answer any questions you may have.

A map and directions to our office is available here. If you have any questions or concerns prior to your appointment, please do not hesitate to call our office at 781-762- 9018.
