Most optometry doctors provide care for urgent eye health conditions such as infections (i.e. the pink eye), inflammation (i.e. blepharitis), allergies and eye injuries, including the removal of foreign bodies from the eye, in addition to helping diagnose, treat and prevent eye diseases. Optometrists, as qualified professionals, may diagnose irregular or unexpected changes in vision and different conditions that cause eye pain and offer referrals to other specialists when necessary. If you have an eye-related emergency please contact us immediately.
