We Are Here When You Need Us

St. Clair Eye Clinic is here to manage your optical emergencies. We provide quick care to help preserve your vision in the case of an emergency situation. 

We are an emergency referral clinic for a UHN family practice and will always make time to see emergency patients on the same or next day. We can also arrange quick referrals for secondary and tertiary care as needed. 

Do not hesitate to get in touch with us if you are having an eye emergency.

Types of Eye Emergencies

If there has been impact to the eye or surrounding areas, you are at risk for long-term damage to these delicate tissues. Physical trauma can cause a black eye or swelling, eye pain, or even bleeding.

If you’ve experienced physical trauma, you can gently apply a cold compress to reduce swelling and pain. Call our offices right away.

Chemical splashes could involve vinegar, bleach, or battery acid. If your eyes have been exposed to chemicals, immediately flush your eyes with cool, clean water for 15 minutes and seek emergency medical attention.

Corneal abrasions such as tears or punctures in the eye are serious emergencies. Do not rub your eye if you have a corneal abrasion. Instead, apply an eye shield and seek immediate medical attention.

Flashes of light or cobweb-like images that appear to be floating in your field of vision might be a sign of retinal detachment. The sudden appearance of such objects or the presence of flashing light constitutes a medical emergency.

Act Quickly To Preserve Your Vision

We always have time for emergency patients. We know how important it is to act quickly in the instance of an ocular emergency. Call us right away if you need immediate care. If our offices are not open, please go to your nearest emergency room.

I couldn't be more enthusiastic about Dr. Korkis -- in fact, i think she may have saved the vision in my right eye. I went for a routine eye exam, she diagnosed a possible retinal tear, and through her contacts I was seen by a retinologist only a few hours later. He found a large tear and lasered it on the spot. (He failed to offer any follow-up advice -- although he did schedule another appointment -- but when I called Dr Korkis after the weekend, she immediately told me what I needed to know. In addition to her manifest diagnostic skills, she is friendly, personable, and very efficient. I am so glad to have found her.

We have been using this clinic for many years. The place gives you immediate confidence when you enter and know that you have arrived in a professional environment. Dr. Neel Vyas heads this place. He treated me with utmost care and professionalism. He has added new test equipment to do a diagnosis of many kinds. I will continue to visit him because I know the diagnosis will be accurate. The reception staff is quite friendly too. The place is clean, and they display all designer eye glasses for one to choose. Price is very reasonable. I compared it, and I know this clinic is not overcharging me. One more thing: They display artful paintings and photographs for you to enjoy while waiting your turn.

I recently experienced a very painful and scary corneal ulcer that appeared out of nowhere. I had never been to this clinic before but I called on a Saturday as an emergency when my symptoms first started. It ended up being an almost 2-month ordeal that I had to deal with and the care I received here was incredible! Both Dr. Korkis and Dr. Vyas were friendly and caring and were diligent about following up with me to ensure I was healing properly. The front desk staff were also very friendly and helpful! I highly recommend this place for eye care!
