Your Visit at Eye Specialists of North Colorado
Welcome to Eye Specialists of North Colorado. Here is useful information that will assist you in making an appointment.
What to Bring to Your First Visit:
To help us serve you better, we ask that you bring to your first visit the items listed below.
complete and bring with you the new patient paperwork that was mailed
to you. Completing these forms prior to your appointment will help the
physician and staff see you in a timely manner.
sure to bring your insurance card(s) and I.D. We participate in most
medical insurance plans. Please contact them to make sure we are a preferred
provider. We do not participate in vision insurance plans. If you do
not have insurance, or your physician does not participate in your
insurance plan, you are required to pay at the time of service.
An up-to-date list of any medications you may be taking and their dosages.
Current eyeglasses and/or contact lenses and the prescriptions.
If necessary, any referral form/authorization from your primary care physician before seeing a specialist.
What to expect at your visit:
check-in, you will be taken into the examination room by an ophthalmic
technician who will review your essential health information and the
reason for your visit. For many patients, several diagnostic
measurements may also be needed at this time, such as visual acuity,
glaucoma test, etc. Most patients, including children, will then need
pupillary dilation, which requires a minimum 10 minute period after eye
drops are administered. In order to accommodate all patients, please be
on-time for your appointments. Patients who are significantly late
will be asked to reschedule.
We will do our utmost to proceed as rapidly as possible, but ask that
you allow approximately two hours for an initial evaluation.
Subsequent visits are substantially shorter for most patients, but
vary according to the individual needs.
