Hours of Operation

First Visit to our Practice
Please bring your prescription eyeglasses, all current health insurance cards and a list of current medications. A complete eye exam takes about one hour and may include dilating (enlarging) the pupils with eye drops, enabling the doctor to fully see the back of the eye. The drops may cause temporary blurring of vision, (especially reading) and sensitivity to bright light, which may for some patients, make driving uncomfortable. It may be a good idea to bring along a pair of sunglasses if you are driving.

Our doctors are on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. If you have an eye emergency -- day or night -- call our office in Providence at 401-272-2020, our Fall River office at 508-679-0150, or 401-437-0500 in our East Providence office for assistance.
