EMERGENCY EYE TREATMENT

Trust The Professionals At Urban Eyecare for Your Emergency Eye Treatment

Eye emergencies include red eyes, dry eyes, itchy eyes, pink eye, eye injury, flashes of light in vision, floaters in vision, foreign body in the eye or any other visual disturbance. Emergency visits to the optometrist are covered by Alberta Health Care for individuals of all ages at any time. It is important get any ocular or visual disturbances assessed as some of them can lead to vision loss and others require immediate treatment to prevent them from progressing. At Urban Eyecare, we understand the urgent nature of these visits and will accommodate you into our schedule for an assessment on a same-day basis.

FAQ

How often should I be getting a comprehensive eye exam?
Comprehensive eye exams are recommended once a year for individuals of all ages. Annual eye exams are covered by Alberta Health Care for children under the age of 19 years and seniors over the age of 65 years.
Why do I need routine eye exams if I see 20/20?
Vision is beyond just seeing 20/20. There are several eye conditions where the distance vision is unaffected, yet the visual system fails to work adequately due to eye teaming and coordination problems resulting in constant eye strain and headaches. If you have good vision, the purpose of routine eye examinations is to ensure adequate eye teaming and oculomotor functions, and to screen for eye conditions that can affect the front and back of the eye. Most eye conditions are very subtle in nature when they begin making it impossible for you to detect them until they are quite advanced, which in most cases is too late to treat. These subtle signs are easily detectable by an eyecare professional when they look at the front and back of your eye during your routine eye examination. When detected early, many eye conditions are treatable to either stop or slow down their progression.

Do I Have To Call In Before An Emergency Eye Treatment?

It is best to call the clinic when you have an eye emergency to make the process the most efficient for you. However, we do accept walk-in emergency appointments at our clinics as well.

Do I Need To Go To A Hospital For My Emergency Eye Treatment?

For all your eye emergencies, it is best to see a Calgary optometrist first as most eye emergencies do not require a visit to the hospital and can be treated by an optometrist.

It was an awesome experience. Never knew what I was getting myself into until I came to the clinic, Dr Arora and her team of staff were very kind, patient and well grounded in the eye business. They made me felt at home, gave a thorogh examination of my eyes and now I can see better. The cost is also awesome, well affordable in comparison with others and the quality of care rendered.read more

The doctor was very knowledgable and kind. I felt that my exam was very thorough and she explained why I was experiencing issues with my sight. The staff at the front were so nice and helped me pick out my first pair of glasses. They looked up my coverage for me and took care of the direct billing.My glasses seemed pricey but I have no idea what is normal. I would recommend this place for the service!!read more

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND!! I work close to Urban Eyewear so decided to check them out. Eye exam was VERY comparably priced to Costco and others. Eye dilation is covered under Alberta health care (Which I know my mom was just charged extra at her optometrist for the dilation) Roxana and Dr Marsh are awesome. Roxana was very helpful in helping me find the right pair and such a sweet heart she is!!!!!! I will keep my business at URBAN EYEWEAR FOR SURE!read more

I brought back a pair of very expensive Maui Jim’s because I had scratched them and then the scratch had turned into a crack. They recommended that I send them back to the factory to see if it was a manufacturer defect. A few weeks later, I got the call and picked up what I think was a brand new pair. Although it cost me 15 dollars for shipping, it was definitely worth it! The service was great, and I would definitely go here again for all my eye care needs.read more

So this is a local shop for me and I love it! They are so friendly, helpful and kind. I went in to look for Maui Jim Sunglasses. They didn't have the color I liked so they sat me down and went on the computer and customized sunglasses for me! This was on a Tuesday and by Thursday they had called and they were in! Went and picked them up in a pretty bag with a full size glass cleaner! I'm definately going to be using them for my kids and my eye checkups! Great service and Great people!!read more

I came in to look for a new pair of sunglasses at an affordable price. The ladies at the front were very helpful and gave me honest opinions on the glasses I was trying on. They made the experience very enjoyable and I ended up leaving with a pair of Gucci sunglasses that were at an extremely affordable price!read more
