Patient Forms

Welcome to our office and thank you for choosing us to provide you with your eye care needs.

Expect your first visit to take 45 to 60 minutes. The length of time may vary depending upon your individual needs. Please complete the patient information forms and bring them along with you.

All forms

We do participate with many medical health insurance companies. However, it is your responsibility to confirm your benefits prior to your visit. If your insurance requires a referral from your PCP, please be sure to bring it with you at the time of your visit. You will not be seen unless you meet your insurance company's requirements.

Bring the following:

  1. Insurance card(s)
  2. PCP Referral form, if required (services will not be provided without one.)
  3. List of current MEDICATIONS
  4. Current eyeglass or spectacle prescription
  5. If you are a contact lens wearer, please wear them and provide the brand, power, base curve, and lens diameter.

Fee for service, co-payments and refraction are due at the completion of your visit. For your convenience, we accept most major credit cards. All claims are automatically submitted to your health insurance companies.

Any patient under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. If this is not possible, please provide a letter authorizing medical treatment.

DUE TO THE DOCTORS' ALLERGIES TO PERFUMES, COLOGNES, AND SCENTED LOTIONS, PLEASE DO NOT WEAR ANY FRAGRANCES AT THE TIME OF YOUR VISIT. Thank you.
