Your First Visit to Center for Sight


Your First Visit to Center for Sight in Fall River, Massachusetts

Depending on your medical status and your optical needs, your initial eye exam will take about 1/2 to 1 1/2 hours. Please arrive 15 minutes early to fill out the paperwork. You can help us to provide you with a thorough examination by bringing the following:

  • Your most recent pair of eye glasses or contact lenses, if any
  • All of the medications you are taking and a list of any allergies to medications
  • The name of your family doctor
  • The name of the doctor that referred you
  • Your insurance cards
  • Photo ID for identification verification

Your eyes may be dilated, which means they will be sensitive to light, and your near vision will be blurry. They will remain dilated for about 3-4 hours. We highly recommend that you bring someone with you who can drive you home after the exam.

If you are seeing one of our ophthalmologists, your exam will begin with a technician recording a complete medical history, checking your vision and intraocular pressure, as well as other tests, based on your individual needs. Your glasses will be checked and, if indicated, refraction will be done to determine if there has been a change in your prescription. The doctor will evaluate the test results and examine the health of your eyes in order to determine if there are any medical problems or a need for new glasses. The doctor will discuss the findings of the exam, and treatment options if necessary for you. Any questions or concerns you may have will also be addressed at this time. During your visit, please feel free to ask any questions about your eyesight. We will be glad to answer those questions and provide you with additional written information that we have available.
