Why wait for hours at a hospital emergency department?
Did you know that you don’t have to run to the emergency department for many eye emergencies?
Optometrists can look after most of your emergencies.
- Do you have a swollen eye?
- Do you have an eye infection?
- Did you have an eye injury?
- Do you have a foreign body in your eye?
- Did you lose your contact lens in your eye?
- Did you burn your eye with a chemical or curling iron?
- Do you have a hemorrhage in your eye?
- Do you see flashes or floaters?
- Do you have pain in your eyes?
This list is not exhaustive. Optometrists can treat many of these conditions and if we are not able to, we can refer you promptly!
Optometrists can diagnose disease, prescribe medication and do procedures to remove a foreign body from the eye.
