Can I drive to and from my appointment

During the clinic consultation, your eyes will be dilated for an examination of the back of your eye. As a result, you will not be able to drive for 4 to 6 hours after the appointment.

During your consultation

Your first appointment with Mr. Viswanathan may last up to an hour, depending on whether your pupils need to be dilated with drops and if any additional tests are required. During this appointment, Mr. Viswanathan will have a detailed discussion with you about your eye problems, examine your eyes, perform relevant state-of-the-art tests to arrive at a diagnosis, and provide advice on the best available treatment options.

What should I bring to my appointment

Please remember to bring your glasses, a list of your current medications, and any other relevant letters or documents, such as referral letters, previous glasses prescriptions, and documents related to your health or eye care.

To ensure a productive consultation, Mr. Viswanathan suggests that you come prepared with a written list of questions. This will help facilitate the discussion and address all of your concerns during the appointment.

Will I be informed about the diagnosis immediately

Majority of the time you will be informed about the diagnosis, during your consultation. Mr. Viswanathan will also advise about the treatment options and when the treatment could take place at a time that suits you. The cost of the treatment will also be discussed at the end of consultation.

Will my GP be informed

Mr. Viswanathan will write a letter to you, your GP, your optometrist, and other relevant healthcare providers involved in your care. This letter will explain your condition, confirm your diagnosis, provide information about treatment options, and include details regarding any necessary follow-up.

Additional tests

To arrive at a correct diagnosis, additional tests such as OCT scan, visual fields, blood tests, CT or MRI scans, and retinal electro diagnostic tests may be required. These tests will incur additional charges, and the cost will be provided at the time of booking. Typically, the cost of these tests is covered by insurers, so we advise insured patients to seek prior approval.
