Patient Information

Thank you for choosing Gupta Eye Center! We hope that your visit is a great experience. In order to make your upcoming appointment as efficient as possible, please take time to read the following information regarding your visit. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call our office.

Reason for your visit

Your doctor or optometrist has noted that you require a specialized eye exam and possible treatment. We will provide you with a thorough eye examination. If you require prescription glasses or contact lenses, we can refer you to local optometrists in the area. While Dr. Gupta’s practice does not perform eye surgery, we will be happy to refer you to a qualified surgeon in the event surgery is required.

Complete patient forms

The following forms are required for all new patients. For your convenience, you can download them here and fill them out at home prior to your appointment.

During your visit

New patients

Please expect to be here around 1.5 to 2 hours. This may be longer if additional testing and/or procedures must be completed the same day. Your visit will include dilation of the eyes and several standard photos to diagnose, treat, and monitor eye conditions you may have.

Follow up patients

Please expect to be here around 1 to 1.5 hours. If you are having a follow up exam, you will likely be dilated and have photos taken. If you are having a laser done, you will be dilated in the eye having the procedure done. If you are having an injection, you may have some photos taken at your visit prior to your injection.

Post procedure instructions

Injection

Your vision will be blurry after having an injection due to the medication. Take any precautions as you would after a comprehensive eye exam (i.e. you may need a driver). Do not rub your eye. Your eye may be red, have a slight burning sensation, or feel as if something is in your eye due to the medication used to prevent infection. You may use preservative free artificial tears only for comfort.

To prevent infection, do not get any other substances into your eye for a few days (for example, while showering, do not turn your face to the showerhead in order to avoid water getting into your eyes). Do not swim for a few days. You may take an over-the-counter pain reliever (e.g. Tylenol) for soreness.

Call the office immediately if you have decreased vision, worsening or constant pain, worsening redness, increased floaters/flashes, or increased light sensitivity.

Laser

Your vision will be blurry after having a laser procedure due to the dilation drops and the procedure itself. Take any precautions as you would after a comprehensive eye exam (i.e. you may need a driver). Do not make any sudden head movements, bend over, or do strenuous activities for 1 week. You may take an over-the-counter pain reliever (e.g. Tylenol) for discomfort or soreness. Call the office immediately if your vision decreases or you have increased floaters/flashes.

Thank you again for choosing Gupta Eye Center. We look forward to seeing you soon!
