When you have an eye-related accident, you will need to act quickly to save your sight. Our office is available for emergencies. If one does occur, please call us and provide some details.

Of course, if we are unavailable, please go directly to the nearest hospital.

Alternatively, we also recommend going to St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton King Campus as they have an on-call resident ophthalmologist available from 8:00 a.m. – 10:00 p.m. The address is 2757 King St. East, Hamilton.
