New Patient Information

New Patient Information - Low Vision

We are pleased that you have chosen the Richard E. Hoover Rehabilitation Services for Low Vision. Now that you have scheduled your appointment we will forward all of the new patient paperwork to your home. Your initial appointment will include a complete clinical evaluation by Dr. Janet Sunness. If Dr. Sunness determines that you will benefit from additional low vision rehabilitation therapy, you will be seen by Michelle Bianchi, our Low Vision Occupational Therapist. Please plan to spend 3 hours for your first appointment.

What will you need to bring to your appointment:

  • Completed new patient paperwork 
  • Insurance card (s) 
  • Photo ID 
  • Magnifiers and glasses you have at home 
  • If your insurance is an HMO or Managed Care plan, please obtain the necessary referral form or pre-authorization prior to your visit. 
  • If it is determined that you would benefit from new glasses and a prescription, a payment of $40.00 will be collected at the end of your visit. Regretfully, most medical insurances do not cover the refraction completed during the exam.
  • Bring a snack.

If you have any questions, please contact our office at 443-849-2658.

We look forward to meeting you.
