Patient FAQs

You may have questions before meeting with your eye doctor. As a comprehensive eye care clinic, we understand. With our extensive experience, we’ve received all kinds of questions over the years. We’ve included a few of our most-asked questions here so you can get the answers you need to feel comfortable going into your appointment. Don’t see your question here? Just contact our office, and we’ll be happy to provide an answer.

Do I need to arrive early to my appointment?
Yes, we ask that you arrive at least 15 minutes before your scheduled appointment time to complete any necessary paperwork prior to meeting with your eye doctor.
What if I need to reschedule my appointment?
We realize that unexpected commitments arise in everyone’s schedule. If you need to reschedule your appointment, just contact our office. We’ll help you find a new appointment time that works best for your schedule.
As a new patient, what should I bring to my first appointment?
We request that new patients bring their insurance card, as well as previous eyewear and/or current contact lens prescription if applicable.
How can I make the most of my appointment?
We encourage patients to come with a list of prepared questions for our Optometrists and Eye Specialists. Patient education is a priority at Eyes on 3rd, so it’s important you follow the guidance and protocols your eye doctor provides in order to maintain lasting eye health.
How often should I see my eye doctor?

Typically, the average adult should visit his or her doctor once every two years. If you’re over 65, currently wear glasses or contacts, or are at risk for eye disease, we recommend you come in for an eye exam at least every year. It’s best to talk with your eye doctor directly to determine what’s right for you. 

Your child should start seeing the eye doctor at 6 months old, then again at age 3, and before kindergarten for his or her third appointment. Once your children are in school, they should have regular eye exams every two years through age 18.
