There are more than 20,000 patient visits each year to the Comprehensive Ophthalmology and Cataract Consultation Service. To make your appointment with a physician at the downtown Charles Street office or the One Joslin Place office, please contact 617-573-3202.
If you wear contact lenses, please inform us of this when you call to schedule your appointment. Contact lens evaluations and comprehensive eye exams can be coordinated in the same appointment at the Charles Street location if scheduled in advance.
During an initial consultation, you will receive a thorough eye examination, including dilation of the pupils and new prescriptions for eyeglasses, if needed. Please bring your current pair of eyeglasses to your appointment and make sure that someone is available to bring you home.
