Eye Emergencies

We offer emergency services during normal business hours for established patients that require immediate and urgent eye care. Our on call doctor is available outside office hours for triage. Please call and follow the phone prompts.

To best be seen, please call as soon as possible, by morning or early afternoon. Same day appointments are not always available but we will do our best to accommodate you and provide the best care for your needs. Use your best judgment on urgency, if you feel the need to find the nearest emergency room.

We treat various ocular emergencies including:

  • painful, red eye(s)
  • injury to your eye(s)
  • sensitivity to light
  • vision loss
  • flashes of light
  • a dramatic increase in floaters
  • a dark curtain/veil over your field of vision
  • foreign body
  • contact lens complications
  • itchy, watery eyes

In response to the fast-changing COVID-19 situation, and the recent CDC recommendation to suspend routine eyecare, we are now open with limited staff available Monday through Friday from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm for patients with ocular emergencies/urgent needs and for those who need to pick up orders. If you have an ocular emergency or would like to pick up glasses, contact lenses or eye vitamins, please call ahead to schedule a pickup appointment at 916-443-3524.

The safety of our patients and employees is our highest priority. We appreciate your understanding during this difficult time.
