Preparing for Your Visit & What to Expect
We try our best to let every patient know what to expect when they arrive for their appointment. In the Retina Specialty field, patients are frequently seen on an emergency basis. We strive to ensure that all patients receive the same care and treatment, but emergency visits can be disruptive when they happen. We ask that you allow at least two hours for your scheduled appointment due to various tests and procedures that may be needed for your care.
Additionally, below is a list of items you will need to bring with you:
- photo identification card
- medical insurance cards
- eye drops you are using
- list of all medications you are taking

Wait Times for the Retina Specialty
Retina Center Of Arkansas is dedicated to providing efficient and thorough care to every patient. New patient appointments take 1-3 hours.
Once you have completed the necessary paperwork upon check in, you will begin the evaluation process. All patients are dilated at each visit to allow for full evaluation of the retina. Dilation often lasts up to 8 hours, so it is suggested to have a ride arranged to transport you home. Often the doctor will order further testing once the retinal evaluation has been completed. Due to the extent of the initial evaluation, please be prepared to be at our clinic for 1 – 3 hours to complete the full evaluation. We appreciate your understanding and patience through this process.
