Dilation Fundus Examination

In order to perform a comprehensive eye examination, dilation should be performed to ensure the best eye care. Only a small portion of the posterior retina can be viewed without dilation. This procedure enables the doctor to examine the eyes for cataracts, glaucoma, and other conditions that may result in vision loss. Early signs of diabetes, arteriosclerosis, and high blood pressure can be detected. In addition, the doctor can examine the retina for any holes, tears, detachments, or tumors. In order to dilate the eyes, drops are instilled which widen the pupils within 10-20 minutes. Your vision, especially reading vision, will become blurred for about 3-4 hours. Dilation also has a tendency to make eyes more sensitive to light, so disposable sunglasses are available to ease the glare from the sun and depending on your personal sensitivity, you may need to avoid driving or operating dangerous machinery for 3-4 hours or until the effects wear off.

YES I would like to have a complete dilated exam.
NO I decline the dilation and understand that I am releasing Dr. Brandy E. Hicks from any liability.

IWellness Exam

Sight threatening diseases such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and others often have no outward signs or symptoms, which is why eye exams, including a thorough retinal evaluation, are important to protect vision. In an effort to provide a more thorough eye exam, our practice is pleased to now offer Digital Retinal Imaging as well as the iWellnessExam SD- OCT retinal screening as part of your eye exam today. This unique technology can help detect vision threating diseases in their very early stages, when they are most treatable.

Because knowing the results of this test is so valuable, Dr. Hicks is advising every patient to have this test done yearly to help monitor slight changes and detect eye disease earlier than otherwise possible.

These two tests will become a part of your permanent patient record and will be reviewed with you by Dr. Hicks during your exam today. The $49 charge is typically not covered by your medical or vision insurance unless being used to actively follow disease. This cost will be added into the price of your visit today.

Any questions you have about these tests can be discussed during your examination with Dr. Hicks.

Please perform baseline retinal iWellness screening as an additional procedure to my examination.
I do not wish to have baseline screening performed at this time.
