Ocular Emergency Clinic, East Gwillimbury, ON
If you have a vision emergency, schedule an appointment at our ocular emergency clinic in East Gwillimbury, ON.
Sometimes you have an issue with your eyes that not only is troublesome, but for which treatment should not be delayed. That is why, at Dr. Miller & Dr. Tilis Family Optometry in East Gwillimbury, ON, we want you to call and schedule an appointment at our ocular emergency clinic. There are a number of situations in which you should come in right away; here are just a few major ones:
- Pain – Pain is always an indication that something is wrong. When you have pain in your eyes, it is usually because there is something in your eye that shouldn’t be. Do not rub your eye if it hurts, as you could easily cause more damage. Pain can also be a result of an infection or severe allergy. Come to our ocular emergency clinic, so we can diagnose the situation and safely treat you.
- Sudden Vision Change – It is not normal for your vision to change quickly. There are a number of causes that deem this symptom a valid reason to come into our ocular emergency clinic. If you suddenly experience blurred vision, loss of vision, distortion, double vision, light sensitivity or a curtain-like shadow blocking your vision, come see us right away.
- Trauma – If you suffer an accident that includes trauma to your eyes, either from blunt force or chemical splash, and you notice hemorrhages in your eyes, you should have your eyes checked right away.
We see emergency patients weekdays from 10 am to 1 pm. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, you must call ahead for an appointment, but we promise to get you in as soon as possible! If in doubt about whether your situation is an emergency, feel free to give us a call. We treat your family like our own family, so we’ll always provide the best care.
