A complete eye exam performed at NEORETINA may be different than the eye exam you are used to receiving for glasses or contacts. Please plan to be in our office for approximately three hours which will allow time for dilation, diagnostic testing and the exam performed by the doctor.  If treatment is recommended for your condition please allow for some extra time in our hospital to perform the procedure .

  • Dilation opens your pupils to allow the doctor a better view inside your eye. It is important to know that your vision will be blurred and you will be sensitive to light for several hours if not the rest of the day after dilation of your pupils. Therefore, we recommend that you bring sunglasses and have someone drive you home from your appointment.
  • Our physicians are vitreo-retinal specialists which means their focus is to look inside your eye at the vitreous (jelly-like substance inside the eye) and the retina (the back wall of your eye responsible for vision).
  • Most diagnostic tests that the doctor may order to evaluate your eye condition can be performed right in our office at the time of your appointment.
  • Many of the procedures that may be recommended to treat your condition can be performed by the doctor right in our hospital at the time of first consultation itself or can be scheduled at a later date.
