At Anderson and Shapiro Eye Care, we have highly trained ophthalmologists that provide advanced diagnostic and therapeutic eye care, including our retina specialist Dr. Jay Met.
Please plan on being here for approximately 2-4 hours for your first appointment with Dr. Met. We will be dilating both your eyes, which the effects may last up to 24-48 hours. Dilation is important for these exams, because when the pupil is enlarged, it allows Dr. Met the best view of the retina possible to ensure proper exam and diagnosis.
It is common to experience light sensitivity, therefore, remember to bring sunglasses with you. We strongly recommend you bring a driver to your appointment. You will be taken back by a technician first to do some initial testing. Afterward, Dr. Met will determine if any further testing is needed before he sees you.
The retina is a layer of light-sensing cells that line the back of the eye. As light rays enter your eye, the retina converts the rays into signals that are sent through the optic nerve to your brain, where they are recognized as images. Retinal conditions can lead to visual impairment.
