Your First Visit to Georgia Vision Center

So you’ve scheduled your first appointment with Georgia Vision Center? At Georgia Vision Center we understand that visiting the eye doctor can be quite intimidating. However, knowing what to expect, what to bring and how to prepare can make the whole experience a lot more comfortable.

What to Bring to Your First Eye Doctor Visit

  • Any current contact lenses, glasses or sunglasses you wear.
  • A list of medications, vitamins, and supplements you take.
  • Vision insurance documentation if you are covered.
  • A list of questions you want to ask your Hiawassee eye doctor.
  • Someone to drive you if you are having your eyes dilated (many people have problems driving)

At Georgia Vision Center, we recommend that most of our patients schedule a routine vision examination at least every two years. For those 60 or older, we recommend scheduling annual exams as they have an increased risk of optometric problems, conditions, and diseases.

What to Expect on Your First Visit

At Georgia Vision Center we use a variety of tests to examine your optical health. These tests range from reading an eye chart to using advanced technology to see the structures inside of your eyes.

Our comprehensive vision examination typically takes around an hour; your eye doctor will determine which tests are necessary to fully evaluate your eye health and vision. For those interested in contact lenses, a contact lenses exam will be required. Please let us know prior to your first visit.
