If you have medical or vision insurance, be sure to bring in your up-to-date insurance card(s). We will copy this information into your health record. This applies to both new and established patients.
If you do not have insurance or wish to pay with cash, please call our clinic for pricing.
Like most healthcare professions we require a certain amount of information about you prior to your visit. This information includes, but is not limited to:
We collect this information from you directly when you fill out your intake form. This form is required for both new and established patients. There are two ways you can fill out this form:
If you have questions about the intake form, please call our office.
Once every year. Regardless if your appointment is for an annual eye exam, dry eye treatment, or any other service we offer.
There are two main reasons we require the intake form to be filled out every year:
The intake form will also be scanned into your Electronic Health Record (EHR) at Valley Eye Clinic, so that we can refer back to it in the future, if needed.
If you were previously the patient of another eye clinic, it can be beneficial to have your old optical records sent over to Valley Eye Clinic. This is especially important if you have any disease that greatly affects the eyes, such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, or Type II Diabetes. We make this process simple. When you come into our clinic for your appointment, we will have you sign a consent and release form which we will then send to your old clinic. They will send us your old records and we will keep them on file at Valley Eye Clinic as part of your new Electronic Health Record.
This process is not required to be a patient at Valley Eye Clinic, but is an extra step that one can take should they want their optical health history more organized at their new clinic.
As stated above in the Intake Form section, be sure to arrive 15 minutes prior to your appointment to allow for ample time to fill out your intake form. You can also print out the form and fill it out at home, bringing it with you at your scheduled appointment time.
