Eye Emergencies

What constitutes an eye emergency?

Should you suddenly find yourself suffering from an eye injury, infection, or general irritation, it's critically important that you seek out professional help right away.

Do not try to treat or assess the situation on your own. This could lead to further injury or vision loss. Instead, contact our Calgary optometrists immediately and they will do everything in their power to see you as quickly as possible. Our experienced Calgary optometrists will conduct a thorough examination of the surface of your eye and will also execute a deep eye scan to identify the damage you've suffered, so a comprehensive treatment plan can quickly be put together.
