Other Information

SPECIAL TESTING

Your may need color photographs of the back of the eye and fluorescein angiography to assist in establishing a diagnosis.  Fluorescein angiography involves an injection of dye into a vein in the arm or back of the hand.  No x-rays are involved.  Other tests, including ultrasound and retinal acuity measurements, will be performed if the physician feels they are indicated.


EMERGENCY CARE

 Please contact our office any time an eye emergency arises.  For emergencies outside office hours, please call the Physician's Exchange at (808) 524-2575, or go to the nearest emergency room.

We require all co-payments to be paid at the time of the service.  Please be sure to bring your insurance  cards and picture I.D. to your appointment.  We accept most local insurance carriers.  For other insurance plans, we will be happy to assist you if you will provide us with the necessary claim forms.  For any questions regarding your account, please call our Business Office.
