Vision is important. While it’s critical to schedule annual eye exams with your eye doctor, we understand that life happens and sometimes people often wait until sudden changes happen with their eyes or eye sight. We offer emergency appointments for all of our patients.
Eye emergencies are unpredictable and can happen at any moment. Some eye emergencies develop suddenly and some develop gradually over time. It’s important to see an eye doctor immediately when an eye emergency happens. Below are common eye emergencies we treat on a regular basis here at Smart Eye Care. If you have an eye emergency, please call us immediately.
We offer telehealth exams for eye emergencies when an office visit isn't convenient. We think continuity of care is important and it only makes sense to be able to talk to YOUR Smart Eye Care doctor when you have an eye emergency. They know you, your eyes, your medical history, and your family history. That relationship is valuable for patient care. New patients with an eye emergency are also welcome to use this telehealth service. Many times, telehealth exams can be billed to your medical insurance. A cash pay option is also available. To schedule a telehealth exam please call the location of your choice and we will walk you through the process. All you need is a smart phone or computer with a webcam. Please note that comprehensive eye examinations cannot be done via telehealth and that some emergencies may also need to be seen in-person at a Smart Eye Care office.
There are many common eye emergencies to be aware of. Some of these are far more severe than others, but all require the treatment and care of an eye emergency doctor.
