During your Exam
During your eye exam, your eyes may be dilated with eye drops in order to perform a dilated retinal exam. Dilated eye exam indicators include diabetic eye exams, evaluation of flashes and floaters, macular degeneration, yearly dilated glaucoma exams, age greater than 65 years, and other medical conditions requiring evaluation of the whole retina. If you have a dilated eye exam you can anticipate bright and blurry vision (especially up close) for about five hours after dilation. You should bring sunglasses and, if possible, have someone drive you. Adjust your plans for driving and work with machinery accordingly during this time after dilation of your eyes.
101 Main Street building is next to gas station. Take driveway between gas station and our building to park in free underground garage.
