Thank you for using our online forms! No one likes paper work. Neither do we! Unfortunately, many insurance companies require it. The great thing about using our online forms to fill out your paperwork is that your responses will be saved electronically. That means next year when you fill out your online forms, all your previous information will be pre-populated. No need to fill out the entire form again. You only have to update any changes and hit submit!

If you do not wish to fill out the online forms, we ask that you arrive to the office 15 minutes before your exam to fill out a paper history form.

Please fill out each tab below and make sure to hit the submit button under the submit tab or your responses will not be saved.

COVID-19 Update from Tatum Eye Care

As the pandemic continues to evolve, so do our office policies. Per the CDC recommendations, vaccinated individuals may now enter Tatum Eyecare without a mask. We understand that some patients embrace the lifting of the mask requirement while others will continue to wear their mask.

We ask all patients to continue to exercise caution with respect to the virus

If a patient is feeling ill, stay home and reschedule!

Please continue to maintain social distancing within the office.

What we are doing at Tatum Eyecare

We will continue with heightened disinfecting of the office.

We switched to online paperwork to reduce the time patients spend in the office.

We will continue to direct ship contacts to reduce the number of patients in the office.

We will continue to schedule appointments for eyewear selection or pick up to better spread out patient flow in the office.

We will continue to offer car side pick up or adjustments if requested.

Individuals who are not comfortable with being around mask-less patients, please let the staff know so that we can best accommodate you.

We offer morning appointments before the general office opens. This means only a few patients and staff will be in the office allowing for greater social distancing. These time slots would be best for at risk patients.

Thank you for everyone's patience over the last year,
The staff and doctors of Tatum Eyecare

Retinal Imaging

Our doctors now recommend that all patients elect to have their retinas imaged with the Optos Retinal Camera.

Taking the Optomap image takes less than half a second and nothing touches your eye at any time. The Optos camera is capable of capturing up to 80% of your retina in one panoramic scan.

The Optos camera helps our doctors diagnose eye disease such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, retinal melanoma and peripheral abnormalities such as holes, tears and detachments. The picture will remain in your health record to help detect any future changes.

Unlike pupil dilation, the Optos scan does not cause blurry vision, light sensitivity or affect driving.

There is a $25.00 charge for this digital photo documentation and is not generally covered by your insurance.

Yes, I would like this procedure performed.
No, I do not want this procedure performed.
Consent To Dilate

To best view the back of the eyes, your doctor may dilate your eyes. This consists of 1-2 drops that will dilate your pupils. It usually takes about 20 minutes for your pupils to enlarge enough for the doctor to look inside. You may experience mild distance blur, significant near blur, and light sensitivity. These side effects generally last 4-6 hours. Most patients feel comfortable to drive afterward. If you do not feel comfortable, please arrange for a driver.

Please select one option and sign below.

If dilation is indicated, I consent to having my eyes dilated today.
I DO NOT consent to dilation today and understand that an evaluation of the retina without dilation is limited.
Contact lens Wearers Only

Contact Lens Wearers. The new FTC contact lens rule states that we must have the patient's permission to transmit the contact lens prescriptions digitally to the patient through the patient portal.

I consent to Tatum Eyecare sending my contact lens prescription digitally through the patient portal.
