Comprehensive Medical Eye and Vision Care
Emergency Eye Care

 

We are available during the week, after office hours, on weekends, and have coverage for our patients through other eye care providers if we are not available, if you feel you have an ocular emergency. If you are an established patient of our office and feel you have an emergent condition please call us directly, instead of going to an ER, seeing you primary care physician or going to a quick clinic.

 

 

 

Ocular emergencies can involve any degree of loss of vision, double vision, eye pain, or  ocular trauma. Any contact lens wearer who has a painful, red eye should also call us immediately. Patients who have recently undergone cataract surgery, or other surgical procedure and have a change in their post-operative course or symptoms should also call immediately. There are obviously many other circumstances and conditions that may warrant immediate examination, so if you feel like you have a problem please do not hesitate to call.
