Making your First Appointment

Kindly call our office at 724-758-6338 (Ellwood City) or 724-452-6675 (Zelienople). Our patient coordinators will gather information to determine your current vision and medical needs, your insurance details, your address/phone/contact information, and your preferred dates/times for your visit.

What to Expect During Your First Visit

Our Doctors prefer an individualized approach to caring for patients with the goal of offering the best eye health care.

  • They will review your medical history (from your new patient form) as well as any medications you are currently taking.
  • Our technicians will start your examination, performing necessary tests. The tests performed may vary depending on your particular needs, prior medical history, or responses.
  • Your Doctor will be given all test results to go over with you and will continue your examination. Examinations may include dilation of the pupils, fundus photography, visual field testing, corneal topography, glaucoma testing, blood pressure, visual acuities, refraction for determination of glasses prescription, nerve fiber analysis, and color vision testing, to name a few. All of the information you give us and that we find with testing will determine exactly what we need to do to professionally and appropriately customize your care. Depending on these results, additional visits may be necessary.
  • Prescriptions for glaucoma or other medical problems can also be written at your visit, if required.
  • Contact lens examinations are an additional service. Fees, services and testing will vary if you opt to pursue contact lenses. (Please view our Contact Lens Informed Consent form for more information.)
  • If you need eyeglasses, you can select your frames and lenses right in our in-house Optical department after your exam.
