Your First Visit

When you visit Cape Fear Eye Associates, our goal is to provide you with the best possible service. In order to help us help you, we ask that you prepare for your first visit to our office, whether you’re just coming in for a general eye exam or a consultation for refractive surgery. Located in Fayetteville, North Carolina, our two office locations require that you provide us with your insurance information, current lens prescription, and medical history when you arrive so that we may streamline your check-in process. There are a few other things you will need to do to prepare. Here is your first-visit checklist:

Fill Out Patient Forms

Downloadable online, patient forms need to be completely filled out and brought with you to your first visit to our office. If you have questions about any of these items, please contact Cape Fear Eye Associates and one of our staff members will be happy to provide you with assistance.

Please fill out the following Printable PDF files before coming in. We have also combined the files into one Printable PDF file for easy printing. This will help us make your visit a smoother quicker experience.







Bring Your Current Lenses


If you wear contacts or glasses, bring them with you. We will want to check your vision both with and without your lenses. Often, decreased visual acuity is a sign that your current lens prescription is no longer strong enough to accommodate for your refractive error. After your exam, you may consider a consultation with one of our LASIK surgeons to determine whether getting new eyeglasses or contacts or having refractive surgery is best for your particular needs.

Arrange Transportation

Most often, the first visit to one of our offices entails a comprehensive dilated eye exam during which we may screen for glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, or various other eye diseases. A dilated eye exam can leave your vision slightly blurry for a brief period after your visit. It is therefore necessary to arrange to have someone pick you up from our office following the exam.

Plan Ahead

When you are a new patient, the paperwork you bring in may need to be processed before you go into the exam room. Please plan to arrive 15 minutes early so that your exam can begin on time.
