Clinics

 

What you should know before coming in for an exam

 

Some of the exams/tests involve a process of dilating the pupils. This process leads to blurred vision that lasts for several hours. In this case, we recommend that you come with a companion.

 

The exam generally lasts no more than 15 minutes.

 

To come to the clinic, you will need the referral form from your attending physician and a letter of commitment from the medical insurer (HMO) and you also need to schedule an appointment.
