Appointments for routine eye examinations or follow up visits may be made in advance by calling the office. Emergencies and acute eye problems are seen as quickly as possible during office hours without advance appointment.

Consultations / Referrals
Many doctors and agencies refer patients to Tupelo Eye Clinic because of our reputation for quality care.
If you were referred by another doctor for surgery or consultation a written report will be sent to the doctor who referred you.

Contact LensContact Lenses
A full line of contact lenses are available. Dr. Russell specializes in routine and advanced fitting techniques as well as contact lens problems

Low Vision Aids
Some people with poor vision, especially macular degeneration, may benefit from low visual aids. These aids can be as simple as a hand held magnifier, or as advanced as a page scanner that is attached to your television. Dr. Russell can spend the time it takes to see which is best for you and help you learn how to use it.

E-Scripts (Electronic Transmission Via Secure Internet)
Prescriptions for medications are now routinely given by e-scripts directly to the pharmacy of your choice. Please notify our staff to which pharmacy you would like to have your prescription sent. Mail order pharmacies may be utilized also by e-script. You may, of course, have a written prescription if you prefer.

Telephone Calls
Patients are encouraged to call the office whenever they have questions about their condition, medications, or treatment. Many questions can be answered by one of the trained medical assistants. If the assistant cannot help you, your question will be referred to your doctor who will return your call as soon as possible.
