What to Expect

Why do so many people skip their annual eye exam? We believe it’s because they don’t know what to expect. For this reason, we feel it’s important to outline the process so you can feel comfortable knowing there’s nothing to worry about when you come to us for eyecare services.

Upon your arrival, our receptionist will welcome you as a member of our practice. We will ask you to complete a few forms. If you prefer to complete them in advance in the comfort of your home, the forms may be found in the Patient Center. This paperwork provides us with your health history and other information related to providing you with the best vision solutions.

At Center Road Eye Institute you are seeing a specialist and we bill the majority of examinations to your medical insurance not the vision insurance. This is due to needing to properly document anything that the doctor sees in the examination. For example, the starting of cataracts, diabetes, and hypertension. Vision insurances will not accept any medical diagnosis codes so we have to bill to the medical insurance.

Below, we’ve also included a list of the most commonly asked questions about coming in for an eye exam.

Why is my personal background important?

Dr. McNally will review any current vision problems, your general health, as well as discuss your hobbies and lifestyle requirements to better tailor the examination to your needs.

What can I expect from the overall exam?

In addition to determining your prescription, or how well you see up close and far away, your eye examination will also check to make sure your eyes are healthy. Dr. McNally will test your color vision, depth perception, as well as check for any early indicators of possible eye disorders, such as cataracts, retinal problems and glaucoma. Ultimately, the elements of your exam will be determined by the doctor.

Why does the doctor ask me, "Which is better, one or two?"

Dr. McNally will ask these questions during the portion of the examination when your prescription is established. Dr. McNally will ask you to compare a series of lenses to determine which is clearer for you. As the differences become less noticeable, Dr. McNally will be closer to finalizing your prescription. For this reason, if you’re having a hard time choosing between the options, it’s a good thing!

Why is it necessary to know my blood pressure?

High blood pressure can affect the blood vessels in your eyes and can lead to future vision problems.

Why am I asked to follow a light with my eyes?

This test is used to determine how your pupils and eye muscles react, and is important in assessing neurological function.

Is it necessary for doctor to dilate my pupils during the exam?

Pupil dilation is not always necessary. Dr. McNally will make this decision during your exam. If required, this painless process is like opening a door so the doctor can fully exam the retina. Dilation can also help detect diseases like diabetes, high blood pressure and macular degeneration.

Dr. Timothy McNally has been very helpful in getting my vision back to where it needs to be! After several laser treatments and caterac surgery my right eye is almost perfect. CREI with all it's employees has bent over backwards to help me out. Let them help you out!
