Eye Exam

What to expect when you visit Bahamas Retina and Eye Care Services


When you come to our office for an initial eye exam, you will be required to complete a form and provide us with all of your medical details and history. If you are taking any prescribed medication, please bring with you a list of all of your meds. Please arrive 15 minutes before your first exam in order to complete all the necessary paperwork.

Your initial visit will always include a detailed retinal examination. When we examine your retina we have to instill dilating eye-drops that open the pupil of your eyes allowing us visualization of the retina.

We do not recommend driving immediately after you have had your eyes dilated. We suggest bringing a family member, friend or someone along with you to your initial examination and any subsequent examination if you will be having your eyes dilated.
