Plan on spending some extra time with us so that we may properly diagnose your condition. You will first be given an initial eye exam, after which a technician will dilate (enlarge) your pupils with special eye drops. This dilation, which may take from 20 to 40 minutes after adding drops, allows us to examine the inside of your eye more clearly. As your pupils dilate, your eyes may become more sensitive to light. We therefore maintain a low-light atmosphere in our lobby.

Once your pupils are fully dilated, we will further examine your eyes and possibly perform additional testing, depending upon your condition. Finally, we will discuss your condition and possible treatment options (if advisable), and also answer any questions you may have. Before your departure, we can provide you with special sunglasses to minimize glare and light sensitivity once you leave our office. Your pupils should return to normal within 3 hours.
We look forward to meeting you at your appointment! Please call us (901-747-3900) if you have any questions.
