We are committed to making patients feel comfortable and delivering you world-class care. This begins with you understanding what will happen during your visit to our office.

During your first visit, a staff member will take a medical history and your retina doctor will perform a complete examination of your eyes. In most cases, both eyes will be dilated, which might blur vision temporarily. Therefore, you should arrange post-appointment transportation prior to your visit.

For your initial appointment with Southern Vitreoretinal Specialists, please remember to bring these important items:

  • Your referral from your primary care physician or referring doctor
  • List of current medications, including any inhalers, atomizers, or vitamins/supplements
  • Your best glasses
  • Your insurance card

Your first visit will take at least two hours or more, depending on diagnostic testing and procedures indicated by your physician.
