Our goal at Kanata Optometry is to provide eye care for our community. If you have an eye emergency please call our Kakulu Rd clinic at 613-592-6193 or our Hazeldean Rd clinic at 613-831-1928. Our staff will triage your symptoms with a member of our team of doctors to address your problem in a timely manner.
We also accept eye care referrals from your family doctor or walk-in-clinics.
Our doctors advise that all patients with after-hour eye emergencies proceed to your local hospital emergency room for immediate assistance.
Please read the following regarding our emergency appointment protocol:
- Ocular emergencies are triaged and some patients may not receive a same-day appointment but will be offered an appointment within a time-frame determined to be appropriate based on the type of emergency.
- Although our large group of doctors work very hard to accommodate emergency appointments, if our office is unable to provide care in a time-frame suitable to the needs of your eye emergency we will recommend seeking more immediate care at your local hospital or walk-in-clinic.
- Some ocular emergencies may be directed to local emergency rooms directly without an appointment at our clinics.
- All emergency eye care appointments seen at our clinics will be assigned an appointment time and the doctor will attempt to see you at your scheduled time, however in-office waiting time may vary depending on our scheduling.
