Thank you for choosing Talley Eye Institute for your eye care! We look forward to seeing you at your upcoming appointment. Please read through our suggestions for preparing for your appointment to ensure your visit with us is as quick and efficient as possible. If you should have any questions or concerns prior to your appointment, please do not hesitate to contact us.
New Patient Registration Packet
If you are a new patient or you have not been seen in over 3 years, please print out and complete our New Patient Packet and either send the forms to us sooner than 10 days before your appointment or bring them (or copies) with you on the day of your appointment. If you were referred by your optometrist, you will most likely have already been given these forms inside the new patient folder you received at his/her office. Due to privacy issues, please do not attempt to send these forms to our office via email.
The Day of Your Appointment
- Please bring your current medical insurance card(s) and a photo ID to your appointment
- The co-pay amount listed on your insurance card will be collected at the time of your visit
- For charges NOT covered by your individual insurance plan, payment is due at the time of service
- If you wear contact lenses, please bring in your back-up pair of glasses
- If you wear contact lenses and are coming for a cataract or refractive surgery evaluation, please make sure you have been out of your contacts as detailed in our included Contact Lens Removal Policy
- Bring a list of your current medications
- Bring in all eyedrops you are currently using (including over-the-counter drops)
- Please remember that evaluations for eyelid lesions/conditions are just evaluations. Surgical procedures will not be done the same day
- Talley Eye Institute does not generally perform same-day surgeries except in urgent or emergency medical cases
- New patient exams (especially surgical evaluations) often take a significant amount of time. Please be prepared to allow at least 2 hours for your appointment
As part of your examination with us, your pupils may be dilated. With dilation, most people experience light sensitivity and difficulty with near vision (such as reading). Sunglasses will decrease the light sensitivity for most patients. Some people will also have difficulty seeing in the distance. If you are concerned about driving after dilation, please arrange for a driver to be with you at your appointment.
