If you have a vision emergency, don’t wait for an appointment—stop by our ocular emergency walk-in 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 don’t want you to wait for an appointment in these situations. Instead, we want you to use our ocular emergency walk-in 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 walk-in 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 walk-in 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 on a walk-in basis weekdays from 10 am to 1 pm. 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.
