Before your first visit, review the below information to be prepared for your appointment:

Please bring your medical insurance cards and driver’s license or photo ID to every appointment.
We will collect all co-payments, co-insurance, and deductibles at your appointment.
Bring a current list of all medications, including eye drops.
Keep a copy of all lab results, notes, and papers given to you by your doctor.
We will be dilating BOTH your eyes. You may need to bring a driver, as the dilation could cause vision problems.
Allow at least 1 – 2 hours for your appointment. The initial visit might take longer.
We will notify your referring doctor of our findings.

Private payment patients, please call our main office at 225-768-8833 to discuss any self-pay fees before your appointment.

New Patient Forms

We ask that you fill out the following forms upon your arrival. To save time during your first visit, download the forms, complete them, and bring them with you to your appointment.

If you cannot keep a scheduled appointment or will arrive after the agreed time, call us as soon as possible so we can make the appropriate adjustments.

If you miss an appointment without canceling 24 hours before your appointment time, you will be charged a $30 fee directly to your bank account. This fee will not be charged to your insurance.
