Like any other health or well-being concern, certain conditions can arise unexpectedly. Rapid and urgent care at Laser Vision can be called upon if a patient develops any of the following eye concerns: floaters, flashing, sudden or recent loss of vision, foreign bodies in the eye or painful eyes or eyelids.
Laser Vision provides same-day appointments for patients requiring rapid and urgent care. We retain space in every clinic diary to see people with acute demands and conditions that occur suddenly. Our patient coordinators are trained to triage your concerns so that you can see the correct healthcare professional in the right time span. Telephone consultations with our clinical team can also be arranged to ensure that you are able to access the care that you require.

What are the Causes?
There can be any number of reasons for the sudden onset of any eye concerns. This will be discussed when you talk to one of our local eye care specialists / ophthalmologists, who will want to ensure you maintain good eye health and quality of vision.
What is the Diagnosis?
A Laser Vision Optometrist and healthcare assistant will screen your vision and ocular health prior to a full assessment with an Ophthalmologist. We are equipped with the latest Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) scanning to aid our investigations. Management of your symptoms will be communicated to you in detail and you are welcome to attend with a family member, friend or chaperone for comfort. A comprehensive letter will be sent to you upon completion of your consultation for your medical records.
