Your First Visit

IMG 2597One of the Exam Rooms at AECONECheck in:

Upon arrival, please check in at the front desk. If you are a new patient, please plan to arrive at least 20 minutes early.

The Examination:

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.

Additional Testing:

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.

Medical Records:

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.

Medication:

Please bring ALL medications previously used for your pet's eye condition.
