If you are having an ocular emergency during regular business hours please call 305-673-1211 and we will do our best to accommodate you same day as soon as possible. Emergency visits without insurance start at $145.
If you suspect you are having an ocular emergency , but you’re not sure if it can wait, please call our office so we can determine what kind of visit you require.
