What to bring?

Boys make passes at girls who wear glasses.

Paperwork: In order to be as environmentally friendly as possible, our exams are completely paper-free. We will have you sign our privacy policy statement, which we then scan into your computer file. We will ask you to fill out some your history on an iPad, and Dr. Emming will then go over all of your history with you verbally, so that we can have a conversation about all aspects of your health.

Insurance information: Please indicate any medical and vision insurance you may have.

What to bring

Eyeglasses: Please bring all pairs of eyeglasses that you currently use, including prescription glasses, reading glasses and sunglasses, so we can see how your vision has changed over time. We can also evaluate the fit and condition of your current eyewear and make any repairs or adjustments, if necessary. We accept donations of glasses no longer in use and will pass them on to those in need.

Contact Lenses: Please bring your contact lenses, including any packaging you may have.

Eye drops, contact solutions, ointments: Please bring anything that you put into your eyes. Dr. Emming will review whether these are appropriate or if there is a better option for you.

We look forward to your visit!


In eye care, there are 2 types of insurances: medical and vision. Your medical insurance may be used if you have medical conditions (for example: dry eye, cataracts, allergies, hypertension, diabetes, macular degeneration). Your vision insurance may be used in the absence of medical conditions (for example: farsightedness, nearsightedness, astigmatism, contact lenses, presbyopia). For those insurances for which we are not a participating provider, we will be happy to fill out the forms so that you may receive out-of-network reimbursement, and can discuss this with you if you call us with your specific insurance information.
