Preparing for Your Visit
During an appointment with our eye doctor, many patients require dilation. You may prefer to arrange for someone else to drive you while your eyes are dilated, however many patients are able to drive after their exam. The effects of dilation are temporary and our office staff will provide you with dark glasses to make you more comfortable. If you are scheduled for a dilated exam, please expect to be in the office for two hours.
At Creekside Eye Center, we value both your health and your time. During your first exam you will be asked to fill out our initial visit forms. Once those forms are completed, our technicians will ask you questions regarding your health history and the vision concern(s) that brought you into our office. Answering these questions allows Dr. Sampson to understand the health of your eyes and create the best possible therapy for your current situation, whether that be surgery, medication, or a change in your daily routine.
Some patients prefer to expedite their time in our office by doing the following:
- Create a list of your medical history and any surgeries you have had, as this information will help you fill out our initial visit form.
- Bring a list of the medications you take, as this will help determine what treatments Dr. Sampson can prescribe for you.
- It is a good idea to write down any questions that you may have for Dr. Sampson so you don't forget to ask them during your visit.
- If you would like, you can stop by our office or call and ask our staff to fax or mail you our initial visit forms to fill out before your visit, or download the forms from the link below.
- If you have any questions, give us a call at (707) 263-3500. We will be happy to assist you.
