Urgent Care Medical Eye Evaluations in Edmonton, AB

If you’re experiencing any problems with your eyes or vision, you need to get checked by an eye doctor immediately. Eye emergencies require urgent intervention, as the eye is a critical part of your body. When ignored, an eye problem can deteriorate into something more serious and sometimes lead to vision loss. Even if your eye issues seem to resolve on their own, it’s always advisable to get the opinion of an optometrist to understand the underlying root cause, and learn how to manage these eye problems going forward.

If you’re in Edmonton, AB, call Iconic Eye Care whenever you have an eye emergency. We do our best to have you come in as soon as possible. If it is outside our clinic hours or our optometrist is unavailable, be sure to seek medical help immediately or visit to the Royal Alexandra Hospital Emergency Room in Edmonton, AB.
