What to Bring to Your Appointment

A checklist of what to bring to your appointment:

  • Insurance Information
    Please bring your insurance card or necessary insurance information. If your insurance carrier requires a referral, bring referral numbers and forms. If your treatment is covered by Workers' Compensation, bring a letter of authorization from your insurance carrier.

  • Patient Information Form
    You can download forms, print them and complete them before your appointment. Or, you can complete forms that are available in our office.

  • Medical Records
    Please have your medical records from previous physicians transferred to our office prior to your appointment, when possible.

  • A List of All Medications
    Please bring a list of all over the counter or prescription medications, vitamins and herbs that you currently are taking or have taken recently. Include the strength and dosage of each medication.

  • A List of Personal Health Questions or Concerns
    Sometimes we forget all the things we wanted to tell or ask the doctor, so make a list of your symptoms, questions or concerns before you come to your appointment. And don't forget to bring it with you!

Refraction Policy

Refraction determines the patient's need for corrective lenses (glasses). However, it can also detect vision loss. Sometimes this loss can be slow, progressive, and go unnoticed by the patient. The test can reveal other conditions that the patient may not detect.
