Patient Resources

We welcome you as a patient to Southwest Eye Clinics. Please make note of the following items that pertain to visits in our office.

Your pupils may be dilated with eye drops during the exam. Dilating eye drops can blur your vision, especially your reading vision, for several hours. Dilation is almost always performed for patients visiting our retina doctors. Please call in advance or ask when you arrive if you have any questions as to whether or not your pupils will be dilated or not.

Due to dilating eye drops and bright lights shining in the eyes, your vision may be blurry when you are done the examination. We strongly recommend that patients come with someone to drive them home.

Please allow plenty of time to receive all of the care you need for your eyes.

  • New patient visits for the retina doctors take at least two hours. For the other eye doctors, this may be somewhat less. Sometimes, additional testing or even treatments are required which would lengthen your expected stay in the office.
  • Follow up visits and postoperative visits usually last between one to one and a half hours.
  • Due to the unpredictable nature in caring for patients, please allow additional time for possible delay. It is very important to us to give every patient the care that they need even if it delays the schedule.

Please remember to bring the following items as needed:

  • Referral from primary doctor if necessary
  • Co-pay
  • Insurance card
  • List of current medications
  • Any information that your doctor may have given you such as laboratory tests or handwritten description

  • Retinal Detachment, by Abdul Rasheed Khan, M.D.
    In the world of ophthalmology and vitreo-retinal surgery, retinal detachment refers to a medical condition where the retina pulls away from the blood vessel layer that supplies it with nutrients and oxygen. Considered an urgent situation that requires immediate medical attention, retinal detachment deprives the retinal cells of oxygen and places the afflicted individual at extreme risk of permanent vision loss in the affected eye. For this reason, anyone experiencing symptoms or warning signs of the disease should seek emergency care as soon as possible. In many cases, retinal detachment occurs without any underlying cause.
