Your First Visit

Welcome to Quality Family Eye Care!

As your trusted optometry practice in San Antonio, and we want to explain what you can expect at your first visit to our practice. We understand that visiting a new optometrist for the first time can sometimes feel unfamiliar and uncertain. We strive to create a welcoming and comfortable environment for every patient. During your first visit to our practice, our team will ensure that you receive exceptional care and have a positive experience.

Warm Greetings and Registration

As you step into our office, our friendly front desk staff will warmly welcome you and assist you with the registration process. We’ll ask you to provide some necessary information about your medical history, insurance coverage, and any specific concerns or symptoms you may be experiencing. Rest assured that all information shared with us will be treated with the utmost confidentiality.

Comprehensive Eye Examination

Next, you will meet Dr. Gandara, who will perform a comprehensive eye examination. This examination includes a range of tests and evaluations to assess your visual acuity, eye health, and overall ocular well-being. Dr. Gandara will take the time to listen to your concerns, answer any questions you may have, and conduct the necessary examinations to determine the current state of your vision.

At Quality Family Eye Care, we believe in utilizing advanced diagnostic technology to provide accurate and precise assessments of your eye health. Our practice is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment, allowing us to detect and diagnose a wide range of eye conditions and diseases at their earliest stages. These advanced technologies enable us to provide you with the most effective and personalized treatment plans.

Personalized Treatment Recommendations

Once the examination is complete, our optometrist will discuss the findings with you in detail. If any vision issues or eye conditions are detected, we will explain the diagnosis and present you with personalized treatment recommendations. Our goal is to empower you with knowledge about your eye health and provide you with the information necessary to make informed decisions about your care.

Addressing Your Concerns and Questions

During your first visit, we encourage you to openly express any concerns or ask any questions you may have regarding your eye health, vision, or treatment options. Our compassionate team is here to listen, address your concerns, and provide you with the guidance you need to maintain optimal eye health.

Follow-Up Appointments and Ongoing Care

Depending on your individual needs, our team will schedule any necessary follow-up appointments to monitor your eye health and track the progress of your treatment. We believe in building long-term relationships with our patients, and our commitment to your eye care extends beyond your first visit. We will work with you to establish a personalized care plan and ensure your ongoing eye health and visual well-being.

While obtaining an accurate prescription is an important aspect of the examination, there are several other significant reasons why regular eye exams with your San Antonio optometrist should be a part of your healthcare routine:

  • Early detection of eye conditions: Conditions such as glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and other ocular diseases may develop without obvious signs. Regular eye exams allow us to identify these issues early on, maximizing the potential for effective treatment and management.
  • Comprehensive eye health evaluation: During an eye exam, we conduct a comprehensive evaluation of your eye health, assessing various aspects including visual acuity, eye muscle function, peripheral vision, color vision, and intraocular pressure.
  • Systemic health conditions: By examining the blood vessels, optic nerves, and other structures within the eye, we can detect early signs of systemic conditions like high blood pressure, diabetes, autoimmune diseases, and certain cancers.
  • Children’s eye health: Undiagnosed vision problems can have a significant impact on their learning, development, and overall well-being. Early intervention can help ensure proper visual development and prevent potential long-term consequences.
  • Lifestyle-Specific recommendations: Whether you spend extensive hours on digital devices, engage in sports or other visually demanding activities, or have specific occupational requirements, we can provide personalized recommendations to protect and enhance your vision for your specific lifestyle needs.
