Except for emergencies, we work by appointment only.

You may reach the office by calling 330-856-3300 for an appointment. For emergencies after normal office hours, our answering service will take your information and an "on-call doctor" will get in contact with you.

If you know what type of exam you need it will greatly assist our staff in scheduling your appointment. This information allows us to improve our patient scheduling by allotting the proper amount of time.

Complete eye exams are generally performed on a yearly basis. Exams consist of a refraction, an evaluation of your need for glasses, as well as an evaluation of your ocular health. This generally requires dilation of the eyes with eye drops so that the eye can be fully assessed.

A medical treatment exam is an evaluation of the eyes for a new or existing medical condition that may require medical intervention. This exam may or may not require dilation drops and generally it does not include a refraction. If you are unsure of what you need to schedule, please ask our staff and we will be happy to assist in scheduling the proper appointment.

What to Expect

On your first visit, we will begin your permanent record with our office.

  1. You will need to fill out a registration and medical history form. Please remember to bring your insurance benefit identification cards.
  2. We will also be taking a medical history. Please bring a list of all medications and any eye drops you are currently using.
  3. Be sure to bring your glasses even if they are broken so we can get a reading on the lenses.
  4. If you normally wear contact lenses, be sure to wear them unless they are causing you pain.

At every visit, please check in with the receptionist when you arrive and inform her of any changes in your registration form such as address, telephone number, insurance information or occupation change.

A technician will call you from the reception room to prepare you for the examination.

Please allow 1 ½ hours for your first visit to our office.

If special tests or procedures are necessary, your visit may be longer. We try our best to stay on schedule, although sometimes emergencies arise. We will notify you if we have a long delay as we know your time is valuable.


If you are a new patient to our office or if it has been some time since your last thorough examination, your eyes will probably be dilated.

This dilated exam allows the doctors to detect various diseases which otherwise would be unnoticed. In some cases, dilation allows greater accuracy of your prescription for glasses.

Often dilation interferes with near vision for a few hours. Distance vision will probably be unchanged, although sensitivity to glare may be increased.

If you have ever experienced this sensitivity, you should make arrangements for alternative transportation.

Disposable sunglasses are often needed in bright sunlight and are available upon request.
