Health Safety Notification

Due to COVID-19 and per CDC guidelines, we are seeing patients on a modified schedule. Patients are required to wear a mask or face covering while in clinic. Unfortunately due to the PPE shortage, EANW cannot provide masks to patients. Upon arrival to the clinic, you will be asked if you have experienced a fever, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, and/or sudden loss of taste or smell within the past 14 days. We will also take your temperature. All visitors will be asked to wait in the car, unless they are needed for the appointment (caregiver, interpreter, etc.).

What to Expect

An ophthalmic technician will do several tests prior to the doctor examining your eyes, including obtaining a thorough personal and family medical history, dilating your pupils, testing your visual acuity for distance and reading, checking your intra-ocular pressure (a test for glaucoma), and refraction.

Pupil dilation is an extremely important portion of the exam, as it allows the physician to see all the way into the back of the eye using a slit lamp. He or she will look for signs of eye disease or general health problems such as diabetes or hardening of the arteries that may show up in the eyes.

If no special testing is required and no other exam (such as contact lens) is required, your appointment will last approximately 1 hour, but please allow extra time before or after your appointment to visit our optical department where one of our qualified opticians can help you choose the best frames for your needs.
