Eye Emergencies//

Are you experiencing anything eye related that is concerning you? Depending on the symptoms/injury it can be better to see the optometrist rather then going to the ER! You can be waiting for hours before seeing the doctor that will end up referring you over to the ophthalmologist. We can quickly see you and figure out if it's something minor or refer you to the ophthalmologist if necessary! Give us a call and we can talk you through your best option.

  • redness or irritation

  • bruising around eye
