Secondary eye exam for routine check up. Waited 2 hours for my scheduled appointment. Then waited another 40 minutes to see the doctor. All this while trying to social distance in what seemed like a factory environment.

This appointment was a follow up to cataract surgery. Surgery went very smooth but waiting time was very long. Follow up appointments were made in advance and therefore very convenient. I would have liked more dialog about what to expect after surgery as to length of time to expect complete healing and corrected vision arriving.
