Cape Fear Eye Associates is now offering Telemedicine Appointments
Cape Fear Eye Associates is committed to serving our community and are taking special precautions to protect the health and safety of our patients during this time.
Whether you are an established patient or new to our clinic, you are welcome to schedule an online appointment with one of our providers from the safety of your own home.
Step 1: Please call the office as you normally would to schedule an appointment: (910) 484-2284.
Step 2: Once your appointment has been scheduled, you will receive a text or an email with a link to the virtual waiting room. You can bookmark this web address as it will be the same every time you log in.
Log in to the virtual waiting room 10 minutes prior to your appointment.
Use Google Chrome or Firefox as your web browser (update to the latest browser version)
Make sure you have a strong Wi-Fi connection, or use an Ethernet cable
Close any unused programs
Situate yourself in a quiet area; turn off any ambient noise such as music, televisions, video games, or other noisy electronics.
Close the door to your room if there are others in your house.
Only allow another person with you in the room if you want them involved in your medical care.
Align the lighting in the room so that it shines on you; this will allow the doctor a better view of your face and your eyes.
If you have a small flashlight (or telephone flashlight), have that near you in case the doctor asks you to shine light on any problem areas.
Schedule your appointment today. We are ready to help!
Telehealth appointments may be conducted by videoconferencing, video images, still (high quality photo) images, or by telephone conference. This appointment will not be the same as a direct patient/health care provider visit.
Potential risks to this technology, including interruptions, unauthorized access and technical difficulties may occur.
In an emergency situation, I understand that the responsibility of the telehealth specialist or provider may be to direct me to emergency medical services, such as emergency room. Or the telehealth provider may discuss with and advise my local provider. The telehealth specialist’s or provider’s responsibility will end upon the termination of the telehealth connection.
