If you are experiencing an eye emergency, please call us so we can provide appropriate next steps. Please do not schedule your visit online if you require emergency treatment.
Any situation where your eye health or vision quality is at immediate risk is classified as an eye emergency. This can include foreign bodies lodged in the eye/under the eyelid, chemical burns, sudden vision loss, eye pain, or other situations where medical help is needed to restore vision.
The eye is a delicate organ that requires urgent care when subjected to trauma. Eye pain is not normal and requires medical intervention.
After determining the scope of the emergency, we will provide next steps. While we can handle many emergencies, injuries that require surgical intervention should be immediately directed to the closest hospital.
In many cases, hospitalization is unnecessary- our Optometry practice is capable of providing in-depth care for most types of emergencies.
Our practice is located in the Melcor Centre. Please note that we are accessible from the parking lot only- there is no internal building entrance.
Accidents happen, and when they do, know that we can help. As a full-service Optometry clinic, we have the equipment, staff, and ability to care for your eye during most non-surgical emergencies.
In other words, unless you’re wounded and require hospitalization, we will be able to quickly diagnose and care for your eye during an emergency situation.

The Alberta Association of Optometrists (AAO) recommends that healthy adults have eye exams every one to two years (annually for kids and seniors). Eye diseases can creep up unexpectedly, and the best way to manage them is to detect and treat them early. Book your eye exam today.
