Emergency Walk-In Eye Exams In Downtown Calgary

When something happens suddenly and it’s affecting your vision – it can be scary! If you are experiencing pain in your eyes, sudden vision changes, flashing lights, floaters or any visual disturbances come to Core Eye Care for an emergency walk in eye exam. In the case of diabetic medical eye exams we offer comprehensive eye exams, dilated eye exams and referral to and co-management with an ophthalmologist if further treatment is required for diabetic retinopathy. If we saw signs of macular degeneration, cataracts and glaucoma in a previous comprehensive eye exam you will come back for a medical eye exam where we determine the status and severity of the disease. This includes a dilated eye exam, OCT retinal scans, visual field testing, pachymetry readings and recommendations for treatment and prevention. All acute eye issues are covered by Alberta Health Care including red eyes, eye infections, eye pain and sudden vision changes.

Symptoms We Service During Medical Eye Exams:

Dry Eye Disease Walk In Eye Exams

About 1 in 3 people suffer from dry eye disease. Dry eye disease is a condition where your eyes cannot produce the right quantity or quality of tears. People normally experience symptoms the worst at the end of the day or after focusing for a long period of time on a computer screen. If left untreated, it can result in more serious problems like eye infections or impaired vision. If you are experiencing dry eye symptoms and come in for a medical eye exam, our doctors will do several quick tests to measure visual acuity, tear production and ocular surface dryness. From there we will provide you some options for treatment, such as, eye drops, prescription medication, punctual plugs, blinking exercises and environmental/lifestyle recommendations.
