Emergency Eye Examinations

At SPECTRUM Optometry our patients are seen by appointment. We try very hard to stay on schedule and respect your time. Sometimes you will have last minute concerns such as losing your glasses, or realizing your last pair of contact lenses needs to be discarded soon. For that reason we try to have some appointment times available each day to fit you in as needed.

Emergencies may be for eye infections (goopy eyes), scratched eyes (pain), flashes and floaters (retinal detachment), or sudden reduced vision, among many other causes. Even without a referral, if you have an emergency, call the clinic and let us know what is happening so we can provide the best possible care.

If you are currently a SPECTRUM patient, or a local physician, you may also access our after-hours emergency support by calling 604-536-2050 and leaving a message with your name, phone number and a description of your emergency.
