Emergency Eye Care

At The Eye Studio, we understand that ocular emergencies can happen at any time, which is why we offer emergency services in Red Deer for immediate and urgent eye care. If you sustain an eye injury, it is crucial not to judge its severity yourself. Seek the opinion of an eye doctor as soon as possible to reduce the risk of hurting your vision.

For further instructions, please call our Red Deer office at 403-352-8846. If you feel that your vision issue requires urgent attention, do not delay treatment and visit your nearest emergency treatment center.
