Healthy Vision Institute

Welcome to Your First Visit at Healthy Vision

We are committed to providing exceptional eye care and a comfortable experience during your first visit.

Understand the Process

Your journey to maintaining and improving your eye health begins with a comprehensive eye exam. We strive to make this experience as informative and comfortable as possible. Here's a step-by-step guide to the procedures you will undergo:

  • What is it? Eye dilation involves using eye drops to widen your pupils. This allows us to get a better view of the inside of your eyes.
  • What to Expect: The process is simple and painless. You may experience increased light sensitivity and blurred vision for a few hours after dilation, so arranging transportation after your appointment is advisable.
  • Purpose: This test helps us assess your field of vision.
  • Procedure: You’ll look into a special machine, focusing on a point in the center, and indicate when you see light flashes in your peripheral vision.
  • Understanding OCT: Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is a non-invasive imaging test that provides detailed images of your retina.
  • During the Exam: You will be asked to look into a machine that captures these images. The process is quick and comfortable.
  • Examining Your Eyes: This is a standard procedure where we examine the health of your retina, blood vessels, and optic nerve.
  • The Process: Your doctor will use a special instrument to look into your eyes. It’s a routine part of the eye exam and is painless

Faqs and tips for your first visit

Your journey to maintaining and improving your eye health begins with a comprehensive eye exam. We strive to make this experience as informative and comfortable as possible. Here's a step-by-step guide to the procedures you will undergo:

Absolutely. Our commitment to your eye health includes immediate action when necessary. If our doctor identifies any abnormalities or signs of eye diseases during your exam, we will initiate treatment right away. This approach not only ensures prompt attention to your eye health concerns but also spares you the inconvenience of scheduling another visit and incurring an additional co-pay. At Healthy Vision Institute, we prioritize your peace of mind and strive to provide comprehensive care during your very first visit.

Expect your initial visit to last between 1 to 1.5 hours. We believe in a thorough approach to your eye health, which involves conducting all necessary tests, processing results, and discussing treatment options during your first visit itself. While this comprehensive process does take some time, it ensures that you leave our clinic with a clear understanding of your eye health on the same day. Our goal is to provide you with complete care and peace of mind without the need for multiple appointments.

  • Preparing for your appointment is straightforward and hassle-free. A few days before your scheduled visit, we will reach out to you via text, email, or voice call to confirm your appointment. Accompanying this message, we will provide a link or attachment where you can conveniently complete the necessary paperwork in advance. Filling out these documents beforehand not only helps us prepare for your visit but also streamlines your experience at our clinic, ensuring a more efficient and expedited process when you arrive. We appreciate your cooperation in this preparation, as it allows us to provide you with the best possible care.

We’ll discuss any findings and next steps. If you’ve had your eyes dilated, remember that your vision may be blurry for a short while.
