Preparing for Your Exam


When you call to make an appointment for an eye exam, briefly and clearly describe any vision problem you’re having. Before your appointment, it is always a good idea to list any questions you may have for the eye doctor. Bring a list of the medications you are taking and be prepared to discuss your eye and medical health history, as well as your family’s eye and medical health history.

  • Each time you visit our offices please remember to bring the following items with you:
  • Current glasses and/or contact lenses
  • Insurance ID card
  • Driver’s license or photo ID
  • Referral form and co pay, as required by your insurance plan
  • A list of your current medications

If your Rhode Island eye doctor is planning to dilate your pupils for testing, please bring sunglasses for the trip home. Eye dilation can result in blurred vision and light sensitivity for about four hours or more after the exam. For this reason, you may also choose to arrange for someone to drive you home.

The Greater New Bedford Surgical and Laser Center

The Greater New Bedford Surgical and Laser Center was opened in 1986 with the express purpose of rendering high quality, state of the art eye surgery to patients of all ages, especially those with cataracts, glaucoma, or cornea disease. The Center is designed specifically with the needs of the patient in mind. The entire process from initial examination to final outcome is conducted in a pleasant comfortable environment.

After a patient decides to have surgery, he or she is assigned his or her own Surgical Counselor who is available to answer questions and provide assistance. These individuals are specially trained to assist the patient throughout the entire surgical experience, including follow up care for as long as necessary. Patients are encouraged to contact their counselor for any questions, no matter how simple or complex.
