Walk-In Eye Care Treatment in Kelowna

As Doctors of Optometry, the optometrists at Orchard Park Optometry are qualified to treat minor eye care emergencies, including infections, inflammation, eye scratches, pink or red eyes, as well as foreign objects in the eye.

Eye emergencies can’t wait! If you are experiencing any kind of eye care emergency, we have doctors available for an appointment seven days per week. Appointments are partially covered by the BC Medical Services Plan (MSP), and we will see you as soon as possible. Of course, if we are unavailable and you need medical attention, please go directly to a hospital emergency room.

We take eye emergencies very seriously because our eyes are delicate, sensitive, and so very important. Let us take care of you quickly and comprehensively at Orchard Park Optometry. Call us today—we’re open 7 days a week!
