I have forgotten my post-operative instructions for surgery. What should I do?

You can find pre and post-operative information in the services section or you can contact us for replacement documents.

Please note: These are post-operative instructions for patients who have received these specific treatments from the Eye Treatment Center only. These instructions should not be used if you have had surgery at another clinic or by another physician. These are guidelines that do not replace medical consultations with physicians at the Eye Treatment Center. If you have additional questions, you should contact us for a follow-up.

What should I expect on my first appointment at your office?

If you are a new patient, plan on arriving 15-30 minutes before your appointment to fill out necessary forms. In order to expedite this aspect of your appointment, you can also download our patient forms and bring them with you. A full examination may range from 45 minutes to 2 hours, depending on what your needs are. You may also be dilated that day so it is a good idea to bring a driver with you.

Where can I park?

Free surface parking is available in front of the building. Additional parking is available on the street. Please note that street parking is restricted to a maximum of 2 hours.
