Red, Pink or Sore Eyes?

 

Optometrists have all the equipment necessary to diagnose and treat most eye infections and can refer you to an ophthalmologist should it be warranted. Our scope of practice has grown and we can prescribe topical therapeutics for most eye conditions. In fact, BC medical covers minor red eye appointments, and there is no additional fees to the patient unless a more extensive evaluation is required with the use of dilating drops. 

  • sore, red, or itchy eyes
  • treatment of "pink eye" and other bacterial infections
  • removal of foreign bodies from the eye (such as wood or metal)
  • emergency eye care

This is convenient and cost effective for your whole family and you can be sure you are receiving the attention of an eye care specialist.
