Eye Emergencies

We are always willing to help, should you ever experience an eye emergency. Our office provides emergency services for eye infections, eye injuries and other eye urgencies 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Our state of the art equipment allows us to examine the front surface of the eye and also digitally scan inside the eye for infection or damage if necessary.

Studies have shown that an overwhelming number of emergency room visits could have been treated by an optometrist. These ranged from foreign bodies to severe eye allergies to eye infections as the most common reasons for emergency room visits. It is not always necessary to go to an emergency room for eye emergencies and in most cases are handled in the emergency room by a general practitioner with minimal experience in eye care.
