Your First Visit
Compassionate Friendly Care
The friendly knowledgeable staff of medical professionals at Retina Group of Florida is beside you from diagnosis through treatment to answer your questions and concerns. At Retina Group of Florida, we genuinely care about our patients. Your initial visit will consist of a comprehensive examination and evaluation of your eye condition, which will require several hours. Subsequent visits may be considerably shorter, depending upon your individual diagnosis and any tests or treatments that may be needed.
Before you see your doctor, an experienced ophthalmic technician will take a detailed medical history, perform visual screening tests, and administer drops to dilate your pupils. This is needed so that the retina specialist can see into the back of your eye where the retina is located. The dilation process usually requires 20 to 30 minutes and will make it difficult for you to focus. You may wish to arrange to have someone drive you home.
Your doctor will review your medical history with you and examine your eyes with special attention to your retina. Your doctor will explain his or her findings and, if necessary, make recommendations for diagnostic testing. Once a diagnosis is established, your doctor will discuss your treatment options, answer any questions that you may have, and send an extensive report to your referring doctor, including recommendations for future care.
