Once you have completed the forms, please bring them with you on the day of your appointment. Due to privacy issues, please do not attempt to send these forms to our office via e-mail.

Please check with your insurance company(s) to verify your “vision care” coverage for routine eye examinations by calling the customer service phone number listed on your insurance card. You may also call this same number to verify “medical” benefits for medically necessary visits and procedures.

Bring your current medical insurance card(s) with you.

  • The co-pay amount listed on your insurance card will be collected at the time of your visit.
  • For charges not covered by your individual insurance plan, payment is due at the time of service. Prompt pay discounts are available on certain services. Please ask at the front desk.

As part of your examination with us today, your pupils may be dilated. With dilation, most people experience light sensitivity and difficulty with near vision (such as reading). Some individuals also have difficulty seeing in the distance. The effects of the dilation can last several hours.

Dr. Daniel Holland Reviews:

Dr. Holland is a very personable and caring eye specialist who makes you feel at ease during the exam. He explains things so that it is easy to understand. I would highly recommend him to anybody who is looking for a good ophthalmologist and one who is good with children. -Vitals Review

Dr. Holland has always taken the time to listen and consider my input. He has been very supportive and through. - Vitals Review

Thank you for taking such great care of my little boy "Big Ben"
I would highly recommend Dr. Holland. He is a comforting doc in a stressful situation.- Vitals Review

My daughter was a new patient in for a routine eye check. She's a teenager and isn't often impressed by adults. She really liked Dr. Holland. He was friendly without being creepy. We saw him at the NE Hoyt location. It's a small office. The staff was very professional and friendly. Nice place! - Yelp Review
