Emergency Hours at Our Eye Clinic


Eye infection, injury, visual discomfort or painful symptoms? Contact our Toronto eye care centre

There’s no other way to see it - eye injuries and infections can be painful, unsightly and scary! Eye infection can cause itchy, bloodshot eyes and oozing discharge, and injuries can lead to pain, swelling and bruising in the area around your eyes. Both of these problems are a reason to contact our Toronto optometrist during emergency hours.

Many people hesitate when it comes to seeking emergency eye care. Yet, that could be dangerous and put your vision at risk. We’ve outlined the most typical conditions that qualify as a reason to reach out for urgent medical attention.

Common Problems We Treat During Emergency Hours

  • Eye infections
  • Black eye; injury that causes pain, bleeding in your eye or ocular area
  • Irritation due to a chemical substance; chemical burn
  • Foreign object stuck in your eye
  • Eye allergy symptoms
  • Corneal abrasions

Signs to Watch For

What if you don’t recall injuring your eye, or you aren’t sure if you have an eye infection? It’s helpful to be aware of the typical warning signs of a potentially serious problem:

  • Bloodshot eyes
  • Stinging or burning
  • Ocular pain
  • Irritation or itchiness
  • Foreign object stuck in your eye
  • Double Vision
  • Burns
  • Seeing flashes of light
  • New sensitivity to light
  • Sudden changes in pupil size
  • New “floaters” in your field of view
  • Dark shadows gliding across your vision
  • Sudden vision loss, in one or both eyes

Time is of the essence when it comes to treating an eye emergency. Delaying can make the difference between healing smoothly and experiencing future complications and vision damage. That’s why our dedicated optometrist in Toronto offers emergency hours!
