Scheduling Your Appointment

For the team at Crescent, great care starts the moment you call. After all, the more we know about you and your eye health in advance of your visit, the better equipped we’ll be to support you throughout, from start to finish.

What To Bring With You

Once you’re set up with an appointment time, there are a few things to keep in mind that will help make the entire process go more smoothly for both you and our staff. Of course, one of the most important things you can do is to be sure and bring an updated list of any medications you’re currently taking, as well as a list of your current prescriptions so we can help you stay up-to-date.
Another thing we recommend is bringing in your glasses and sunglasses — prescription or otherwise. That way, our staff can help ensure we’re conducting a full and thorough exam.

What to Expect During the Exam

Although every exam is a little different depending on your needs, in general they tend to follow a similar pattern. For the first part of your appointment, you’ll spend some time with one of our optometrists, during which you’ll answer a few questions about your eye health and any concerns or questions you might have about vision.
