*What is an urgent eye care need?

An urgent eye care need, where the assistance of an optometrist should be sought, is one where you are experiencing an eye health or visual problem, or a problem with your glasses or contact lenses, that is impacting your ability to function normally. An urgent eye care need may include:

  • Sudden changes to your vision, or loss of vision
  • Red eye, or pain or discomfort in your eye
  • Flashes or floaters in your vision
  • Concern you may have an eye infection or something in your eye
  • Essential workers experiencing vision and/or eye problems
  • Eye test to replace broken or lost spectacles if it is difficult to function normally without them
  • Being referred by another healthcare practitioner
  • Anxiety or distress about your eye health and/or vision
  • Contact lens complications.
