Our Optometry Clinic Provides Emergency Eye Care in Edmonton and Area
With wait times sometimes up to many hours, many conditions can be handled by your optometrist. We can also facilitate referral to the right ophthalmologist or hospital when needed.
Eye Safety Prevents Eye Emergencies!
Care should be taken when performing activities that place you in an environment or situation where eye damage is a potential risk. Sometimes these situations aren’t obvious, such as changing the oil in your car or painting your bedroom.
Invest in protective eyewear. Something as simple as wearing protective eyewear while playing sports or wrenching on your car could be the difference between a visit to our clinic (or the hospital) or not.
We are fully equipped to handle everything from corneal scratches to sudden changes in vision. Our doctors provide the same type of emergency eye care (aside from surgery) that you would find in a walk-in clinic and can expedite a referral to correct hospital when required.
For after hours emergencies or severe injury we recommend you proceed to the Royal Alex Hospital. Patients of Dr. Patel can reach him at 780-232-6137 (emergency only).
