When you arrive, you will be greeted by our staff who will obtain and/or confirm your identity and your insurance coverage requirements.


Whether this is your first visit or a subsequent visit, you should bring:






  • a complete list of your medications (including dosages and supplements)

  • make sure you have completed your Registration Form

  • a photo ID such as your driver's license

  • your glasses (distance and near)

  • a pair of sunglasses (your eyes will be dilated and very sensitive to bright light)

  • your co-payment (if applicable)

  • money for parking

  • someone to drive you home 







You will be taken in by one of our technicians, who will obtain a medical and ophthalmic history, will check your vision and eye pressures, and insert pupil dilating drops. Once your eyes are dilated, you will see Dr. Ying, who will perform a thorough examination using an ophthalmoscope.

In some cases, specialized tests may be ordered, including:

  • Fundus Photography — Color photographs of the back of the eye. 

  • Fluorescein Angiography — A diagnostic procedure that photographs the blood circulation of the retina. Fluorescein dye is usually injected into a vein in the arm or hand.

  • Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) — A diagnostic procedure that uses a beam of light and its reflection to obtain cross-sectional images that provide information about the layers of the retina.

  • Visual Field Analysis — Measurement of the full extent of the area visible to an eye that is fixating straight ahead.
