Eye Disease Warning Signs


If you experience any of the following symptoms, you really should have your eyes examined as soon as possible.

  • Sudden loss of vision in one or both eyes (complete or partial)
  • Seeing flashes of light in your eyes
  • Seeing large numbers of spots or “floaters” in your eyes, especially if the number has increased dramatically recently
  • Double vision
  • Pain in or around the eyes that worsens
  • Temporal/Forehead Pain

If you should ever experience any of these problems outside of normal clinic hours, please proceed directly to the Royal Alexandra Hospital - (MAP). The Royal Alexandra Hospital is considered the hub for ophthalmology in Edmonton and there is always an eye surgeon or ophthalmology resident on call. If you feel that your vision problem can wait, please call our office or walk-in first thing the following morning. We never turn away an ocular emergency.
