Do I need to see and Ophthalmologist and an Optometrist?
In most cases, it is unlikely. All our doctors are primary eye care providers. Meaning, they manage and treat most all eye conditions and cases. Ophthalmologist are surgeons of the eye. Dr. Miller will not hesitate to refer you to a trusted, skillful ophthalmologist if he feels that: a) Your eyes need a surgery or a procedure performed b) Your eyes or eye condition require secondary or tertiary care and observation or c) feels that a second opinion may be in the best interest of your eye care health.
Can I schedule a family member on the same day as my appointment?
Absolutely. We will be happy to see up to 2 total family members on the same day. We will do our best to schedule both appointments as close together as possible. Please note that each family member will have their own reserved appointment time meaning that each member may not be seen by the same Optometric assistant or by the Doctor at the same time.
Should my child have an eye exam?
Absolutely. The AOA recommends that all children have their first eye exam in their first year. If your child is over the age of three and has not yet had their eyes examined by an optometrist please call one of our convienent locations today so we can schedule their Kids Eye Exam as soon as possible. Learn more in our Kids Eyes F.A.Q. page.
I already had an exam within the year, can I just come for a Contact Lens Exam?
Yes, as long as you have a valid, non-expired glasses prescription. Simply call us and state that you want to schedule a Contact Lens Exam only. You will need to bring a copy of your glasses prescription with you, as well as your previous contact lens prescription. If you have never worn contacts before please let the scheduling assistant know so we can provide the extra adequate time necessary for training.
How can I request old records from my last eye doctor?
I heard that GVC is an environmentally conscience practice, is it ok if I print out my forms and bring them to my appointment?
Yes, of course. We encourage you to fill out your paperwork early. Online, e-mail, or print, we want to give you plenty of options that works best for you. It is nearly impossible for a medical practice to go 100% paper free, but at Eye Columbus we make every attempt to reduce our paper use whenever possible. Every bit counts.
