Your Clinic Appointment
Thank you for choosing Minnesota Eye Consultants for your eye care! We look forward to seeing you at your upcoming appointment. Please read through our suggestions for preparing for your appointment to ensure your visit with us is as quick and efficient as possible! If you should have any questions or concerns prior to your appointment, please do not hesitate to contact us.
If you are a new patient or you haven’t been seen in over three years, please complete and print our New Patient Packet and bring it with you on the day of your appointment. Due to privacy issues, please do not attempt to send these forms to our office via e-mail.
Please check with your insurance company(s) to verify your “vision care” coverage for routine eye examinations by calling the customer service phone number listed on your insurance card. You may also call this same number to verify “medical” benefits for medically necessary visits and procedures.
If you have a medical clinic listed on your insurance card, you will need to call its referral department to determine if an insurance referral is required for coverage of your eye examination, medical visit, or procedure. If you need further information to process this referral, please call (952) 567-6063 and ask to speak with our Referral Coordinator.
- Please bring your current Medical Insurance card(s) and a Photo ID to your appointment.
- The co-pay amount listed on your insurance card will be collected at the time of your visit.
- For charges not covered by your individual insurance plan, payment is due at the time of service. Prompt pay discounts are available on certain services. Please ask at the front desk.
- If you wear contact lenses, please bring in your back-up pair of glasses.
As part of your examination with us, your pupils may be dilated. With dilation, most people experience light sensitivity and difficulty with near vision (such as reading). Sunglasses will decrease the light sensitivity for most patients. Some individuals also have difficulty seeing in the distance. The effects of the dilation can last several hours. If you are concerned about driving after dilation, please arrange for a driver to be with you at your appointment.
If you require an interpreter for your clinic appointment, we are more than happy to arrange one for you. Please inform us which language you are requesting an interpreter for when you are scheduling your appointment and we will do our best to accommodate your needs. If you are providing your own interpreter, please provide their name and contact phone number when you are scheduling your appointment.
