Medical information release: I request that payment of authorized insurance be made either to me or on my behalf to Dr. Sheila Merritt for any services furnished me by that doctor.

Although we can determine a spectacle prescription without a dilated fundus exam, this only provides a limited view of the inside of your eye and some very serious conditions may go undetected including, but not limited to, retinal holes, tears, and detachments. Drops are placed in the eyes to enlarge the pupils. This dilation usually lasts for 2-6 hours. During this time, your eyes will be sensitive to light and your vision may be blurry, especially at near. This procedure is included in your comprehensive eye exam.
