Emergency Eye Care

Visit us for fast treatment in the event of an eye emergency. Located in east Grande Prairie at the intersection of 92st and 100 Ave.

In the event of an eye emergency – such as having a caustic chemical or foreign body in the eye – a visit to our clinic may be faster than a trip to the emergency room. We have specialized equipment and much shorter wait times.

In most cases, we are able to provide faster medical care, with the same level of treatment, for your eye emergency. If you get a chemical in your eye and visit the emergency room, they will give you an eyewash and then you will wait to see the on-call Optometrist. At our clinic you will receive the same treatment, but will have much more immediate access to an Optometrist.

Please call us prior to coming in and let us know the nature of the emergency. We will provide you immediate next steps. If appropriate (such as surgery is required), we will refer you to an emergency room or Ophthalmologist’s office.
