How to Prepare for a Visit

Preparing for Your Visit

Here you can find some helpful hints to help you prepare for your visit with us.

  • Please bring a list of any medications you are currently taking, including eye drops.
  • Dilating drops may be used during your appointment, and this may impact your near vision and sensitivity to light.
  • Bringing someone with you for your initial visit is beneficial.
  • Wait times in the office can vary by doctor or referral reason.
  • Generally, we advise to allow for at least 1-2 hours for your entire appointment.

We work with the hospital in dealing with emergency patients which can sometimes cause delays in clinic wait times. We also ask patients to bring a translator with them to all appointments. The translator can help guide you through the process.

Please reschedule your appointment if within the last 14 days you or a household member has travelled outside of Canada, have experienced flu-like symptoms, been in contact with a suspected, probable or confirmed case of COVID-19, been diagnosed with COVID-19 or waiting for a lab test for COVID-19.
