A new patient exam usually takes 1.5 hours and includes evaluation of the following:
• medical history
• visual acuity
• refraction for glasses prescription
• eye muscle alignment
• peripheral vision
• pupillary response
• external orbit
• microscopic evaluation with slit lamp
• eye pressure
• retina, macula, and optic nerve after dilation
If a contact lens prescription is desired, this must be specified when your appointment is made as this will require extra time and special evaluation.
