Eye and vision emergencies are common enough that they will probably affect someone you know during your lifetime. People often put off going to the Doctor hoping that issues will resolve on their own. This tends to be the case with eye and vision symptoms as well. Waiting can often lead to long-term vision loss. This article will provide a guide of some common eye and vision symptoms that warrant an emergency examination with an optometrist:
If you experience any of these symptoms or have a concern that feels urgent please book an examination with an eye care provider right away. Earlier diagnoses and treatment often improve the outcome greatly. At Nuvue Optometry, we provide emergency eye care services and we will examine you on the day that you call. During these visits we will determine if we can prescribe a treatment or if an emergency referral to an eye surgeon is required. If you have any questions about any eye care services, including emergencies, please call our friendly staff at Nuvue Optometry anytime.!
If you have any questions or would like to book a consultation, please call our friendly office anytime.Dr Devin W Almond, BSc, OD
