Your consultation at our Greensboro or Thomasville office is the first step in receiving the treatment most suited to meet your needs. Our ophthalmologists take the time necessary to provide each of our patients with a personalized and comprehensive first visit.
To ensure proper treatment and optimal care, these consultations can take up to three hours. Please allow yourself plenty of time to enable us to provide you with the best service possible.
What to Expect During Your Consultation
You will begin your consultation by filling out medical history forms. You can download the forms and fill them out prior to your consultation to help speed the process, but this is not required.
In addition to the forms, our doctors will ask you about any medications you are taking, all known allergies, and other pertinent medical information. This will help us make the best decision regarding your vision care.
After you have filled out the forms, you will be given a thorough vision screening. In this screening, one of our vision technicians will assess:
- Visual acuity
- Confrontation visual fields
- Extraocular movements
We will also take measurements and provide tests including:
- Pupillary tests
- Cover test
- Slit lamp examination
The results of these tests will be given to the doctor for review. Based on those findings, we will then create a treatment plan. When necessary this will include scheduling your surgery and prescribing all initial medications.
What to Expect from Your Patient Experience
We treat every one of our patients with the same respect and care we would hope to be treated with during a visit to the doctor and strive to make your experience as comfortable and easy as possible. We look forward to being able to serve your needs, and providing you with optimal vision for years to come.
