Same Day Visit
EyeCareToday at our Peoria office provides same day access to eye care for patients ages 5 years and older with acute/urgent eye conditions, or for routine vision exams.
An eye care provider will be dedicated to the EyeCareToday schedule each day, and will see all same day appointments and/or walk-ins. Patients may need to see different providers during their same day visit, based on necessity, exam findings, and availability.
During a routine eye exam, your eye doctor will check your vision, screen for eye disease, and/or update your eyeglass or contact lens prescription. Routine eye exams produce a final diagnosis, like nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism.
Patients with chronic (long-term) conditions should call our office at 309-243-2400 to make an appointment.
The most common reasons patients visit our eye doctor for urgent care are:
- Eye infection or injury
- Corneal scratches
- Irritation from a foreign object
- Foreign object stuck in eye
- Extreme eye allergy symptoms
