Appointment times vary depending on the type of care you are receiving and testing that may be involved.
For routine eye exams, patients should allow 1-1 1/2 hours and be prepared for dilation. New patients should allow additional time. Medical eye exams (diabetic, macular degeneration, etc) can take up to two hours. Patients being seen in a specialty clinic (for eye muscle disorder or double vision) should allow up to 4 hours.
