Personal Eyes cares about all its patients — including its newest ones! If you’re planning your very first visit to our Paoli, PA optometrist, Dr. Marie Homa-Palladino, we want to make that first visit as simple, streamlined and unsurprising as possible for you. This page will help you get some the necessary preparations out of the way and understand what you can expect from your appointment at our optometry clinic.

Preparing For Your Eye Exam

One important aspect of a comprehensive eye exam is an examination of the retina inside the eye. To accomplish this, our Paoli, PA optometrist may need to administer eye drops that dilate your pupils, an effect that takes 20 to 30 minutes to achieve. You should known that the dilation may last for several hours, making you quite sensitive to glare. If you plan on driving yourself to and from our clinic, carry some dark glasses to cut the glare. If you’re not comfortable with the prospect of driving with dilated pupils, arrange for someone to drive you or use public transportation.
