Our office is open Monday through Friday 8am to 5pm with extended hours until 7pm on Wednesday. Saturday hours are from 8am to 12 noon. To make an appointment, call our receptionist during business hours at (440) 835-6255 or you can email us your request for an appointment at firstname.lastname@example.org. We make every effort to stay on schedule but emergencies may arise. Emergency appointments will be accomodated onto our regular patient schedule. We regret any inconvenience this may cause you and we will attempt to notify you if there is a significant delay. Note, many dilated examinations may take over 2 hours.
We ask that you arrive 10-15 minutes early for your appointment to review your medical history forms, including current medications, allergies, the name of your primary physician and who recommended our practice. Please bring your most recent pair of glasses and/or contacts and your insurance information. During the exam, we will evaluate your vision and ocular structures. You will be tested for glaucoma, cataracts, retinal, and eye movement disorders if indicated. A refraction (checking for glasses) may be performed. Many examinations require eye drops to dilate your pupils allowing us to conduct a thorough retinal examination. Your near vision will be blurry and your eyes sensitive to the light for several hours afterward. Therefore, we suggest that you bring sunglasses and arrange for someone else to drive you home if necessary.
Patients who are added onto our schedule for a same day emergency appointment may experience a longer wait time. We recognize that emergency situations can arise, and we will do our best to respond to your problem promptly. If you wish to contact our practice, day or night, please telephone our office (440) 835-6255 and they will be in touch with you either directly, through office staff, or pager.
