What is an eye emergency or urgent visit?
[Even with good care, we know that eye emergencies can still happen]
Urgent care includes corneal abrasions, scratches to the surface, foreign objects in the eye, infections, burns/ chemical exposure, and some blunt injuries to the eye or eyelid that does not require surgical intervention.
Other symptoms that prompt immediate medical attention:
•swelling in the eye or eyelid
•loss of vision
•flashes of light
•increase in floaters
If you have sudden eye conditions and may need in-person assessment, please contact us or refer to the College of Optometrist directory for optometrists in your neighbourhood.
