Your Initial Eye Visit Is Key


Your first visit to our office is very important. Meeting with Dr. Del Piero allows you to build a trusting relationship with a vision specialist as he evaluates your eye health history, learns about your vision goals, and determines the best eye treatment for your personal needs. Filling out this patient registration form and bringing it to our office will help our team make your first eye appointment as efficient as possible. 

Retinal Care Is Extremely Important

The retina is a thin layer of tissue at the back of your inner eye that receives light and converts it into signals that are sent to your brain, allowing you to see images. 

When retinal issues are left untreated, they can result in major vision loss or even total blindness. Dr. Del Piero's status as a certified retina and vitreous specialist means he can accurately evaluate your retinal health, and develop treatments to prevent problems, stop or control ongoing issues, and protect your sight. 

We Strive to Make Eye Treatment Affordable

Eye conditions must be treated promptly to avoid serious issues. Even if you are not suffering from an ocular condition, eye exams, glaucoma screenings, and more are necessary to maintain your eye health and prevent future problems. Unfortunately, some patients delay appointments due to a fear of costly care. We have taken several steps to make eye care affordable.

Our doctor accepts most insurance providers and major credit cards. Our capable staff is here to coordinate with your insurance company to help secure maximum coverage for your care. For any out-of-pocket costs, our team can arrange flexible payment options. 

Our Optical Center Is Nearby

After receiving necessary eye treatment and evaluations from our specialist, he can refer you to our Monterey Bay Eye Center. This optical center is just a 12-minute drive from Dr. Del Piero's office, and allows our patients to receive the eyeglasses or contact lenses they need from a skilled optician working directly with Dr. Del Piero.
