Eye injuries and infections are best handled immediately. If care is delayed, recovery is more difficult and sometimes permanent eye damage can occur. Our doctors are available “on-call” 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to protect your eyesight.

Call us anytime if you think you are experiencing urgent eye problems. Please call our main number (802)-524-9561 to receive the on-call doctor’s cell phone/pager number. If we do not answer or return your call immediately, call or report to the emergency room of the nearest hospital.
