Your Visit

You have been referred to our office by your ophthalmologist who has found a retinal condition and requests further evaluation by Dr. Ira Garoon. This evaluation requires both eyes to be dialated for examination and testing. Your visit should last approximately 2 hours. You will receive all results at end of your visit and the report will be sent to your referring physician and primary care physician.

Please bring the following to your visit:

  • Picture ID
  • Insurance card or cards
  • Authorizations/referrals for HMO insurance patients
  • List of any medications and or supplements you are taking, include name dosage and frequency

New patients should come with a driver if possible as both eyes will be dilated and dilation effects last on average 24-48 hours.

We will need all new patients to fill out history forms that will include their medical, social and family history. You are able to download these forms on the website prior to the visit and have them ready on the day of your examination, otherwise they can be filled out upon arrival of your appointment date.
