Frequently Asked Questions
It is important that you feel at ease with us even before you enter our doors. To that end, we want to give you the answers to some questions patients frequently ask:
How long will my visit take?
You can expect to be in our office for approximately 45 to 90 minutes, depending on whether your eyes have to be dilated.
What is dilation?
We administer eye drops to expand your iris. This enables the doctor to perform a complete visual examination, checking the health behind your eyes and examining your optic nerve and retina.
How long does dilation take? Will it affect my vision?
Once the drops are administered, it will usually take between 15 and 20 minutes for your eyes to dilate. Dark eyes take longer to dilate than light ones. The dilation is not painful, but it will make your eyes more sensitive to light and blur your vision for 1 to 2 hours. For this reason, you should bring sunglasses with you to the appointment and we recommend that you have someone with you to drive you home.
What is Refraction?
Refraction is a procedure that determines what prescription you need for corrective lenses so that your vision will be optimal. A device known as a phoropter or a refractor is used during diagnosis.
What is iStent®
iStent® is an implant inserted during cataract surgery that can help glaucoma patients maintain normal intraocular pressure after the operation.
Will my eye exam be covered by my insurance?
At Long Island Ophthalmic Concepts we perform medical, rather than “routine” eye exams and will submit forms to your medical insurance carrier only. We do not accept vision plans.
At Long Island Ophthalmic Concepts, we are dedicated to providing you with the exceptional patient care you deserve. Our staff works as a team to ensure that our patients are comfortable as they receive the very best in comprehensive ophthalmic care. Our primary goal is to provide you with pleasant surroundings as we improve your quality of life by protecting and improving your vision. Contact us today to schedule an appointment!
