Upon arrival, please check in at the front desk. If you are a new patient, please plan to arrive at least 20 minutes early.
Expect the comprehensive eye examination to take 15-20 minutes. New patients may have their pupils dilated. Pupillary dilation will last for about 6 hours during which the patient may be more light-sensitive.
If additional testing is recommended (e.g. electroreginogram), you may either leave your pet with us for a few hours or have the testing performed during the next available testing period, usually within a few days. While our patients routinely receive topical anesthesia, sedation for advanced diagnostic testing is rarely necessary and will only be used with your permission.
In order to provide the best evaluation possible, it is often necessary to review a medical summary of your pet. Pertinent information (e.g. referral letter, medical record, lab work) should be sent to the ophthalmology service before the appointment.
Please bring ALL medications previously used for your pet's eye condition.
