First things first. Don’t panic! Staying calm is the best way to help you think straight and help those around you to remain calm. Often, it’s not necessary to go to an emergency room for eye emergencies. In fact, the vast majority of people who go to the emergency room for eye care could have received treatment from their local optometrist instead.

If you’re unsure whether you’re experiencing an eye emergency, give us a call immediately! Delay may increase the risk of serious complications and may result in vision loss.

Until you see your eye doctor or seek urgent care, avoid the following:

  • Don’t try to remove an embedded object out of your eye
  • If your eye is injured, don't press on it or rub it
  • Dry cotton and sharp instruments such as tweezers should never be used on the eye.

Whether you've had a workplace accident or an at-home incident, our eye doctors are here to help

Hands down the best I have ever been to! They absolutely know what they are doing and even took real... images of my eyes to make sure that they were healthy almost like an x-ray. Never seen that before in any other doctor's office. Very quick very knowledgeable and very informative. Clear communication! My last visit of visionworks at the Vancouver Mall set me on the hunt for a new doctor and found everything I was looking for and more here 🙏

I've been going to Advanced Eye Care for over a decade now, ever since I learned my eyes are bad. Th... ey're run pretty well and they have good customer service which has been consistent over the years. Building is clean and well-kept. They have some really nice eyeglasses selections in their shop that can be affordable with the right insurance, and they have cheaper options as well. The doctors seem to know what they are doing and can explain what's going on with your eyes that sounds patient and not scary. I've changed insurance a few times and already moved to another state but I don't want to let go of this place.

Very glad I found my new go to eye clinic. Dr. Drew was thorough and listened to all my concerns. ... The man of the hour was Tai who helped me picked out my glasses. After meeting Tai, I now understand there are levels to this game and Tai has achieved the highest level. Tai knows all there is to know about finding the perfect pair. The most important thing, he cares. Tai is truly an artisan of his field. My brother from another mother, thank you Tai!

From the moment you walk in you are greeted with a friendly smile and atmosphere that puts you at ea... se. Pretesting with Dona is pleasant. All the Dr’s in the office are friendly, and genuinely care about your eye health. Then there is Tai…he knows his stuff about hooking you up with the right frames and lenses for all your needs and knowing how to use your insurance benefits to the max. Overall a great experience! Well done to everyone that works in this clinic, Advanced Eye Care!

I took my teenage daughter to Advanced Eye Care to get prescription eye glasses. Both the manager, T... ai Hua and the front desk receptionist were very friendly and warm. Tai helped us. He was professional and knowledgeable. My daughter took her time to pick out two glasses. Tai was patient in helping her pick out the right ones. It was Friday and almost closing time and he did not rush us at all. I really appreciate how well we were treated. We will definitely be back for eye exams and glasses. Thank you for the positive experience!

The entire experience with Advanced Eye Care was caring, friendly, patient and informative. Dr. Davi... d King was thorough and discussed my eye health in detail. Tai Hua, the Manager/Optician, explained the types of lenses as well as insurance coverage and costs. Thank you Advanced Eye Care!!

There are several reasons I was impressed with this clinic: there's parking!! It's bright and clean ... and the minute you walk in the door you're acknowledged even if they are assisting another client. Tim Garner, the doctor who saw me, was professional and friendly. He took the time to answer my (numerous) questions and even showed me examples online so I could better understand the subject. Elise, the young woman who was helping me with frames, was friendly but very professional for her short time in the business world, something I've found is not common. And patient! That girl deserves a raise after working with me! She was very knowledgeable about her inventory and unafraid to share an honest opinion. She also went the extra mile and adjusted my current frames so I could see until the new ones come in. Donna, who did the preliminary work up on my eyes, also keeps the front desk running smoothly and greets each client by name. Seriously. Who does that anymore? And she's funny and warm. Topping it all off was Tai, manager and certified optician, who took a personal interest in my situation and worked with Elise and me to find a final, very pleasing, solution to my vision needs. Honestly, why would you go anywhere else?
