The Eye Doctors at Artisan Optics provide Urgent Care

Our eye doctors provide immediate and urgent eye care. Artisan Optics offers same day appointments with limited wait times. The sooner you call, the sooner you will receive the care you need.

Appointments available:  Monday through Friday 9am-5:00pm and Saturday 10am-2pm

You do not need a referral. Immediate and urgent eye care appointments are considered medical visits. When you contact our office please be prepared to provide your current medical insurance information so we can better assist you.

Why call Artisan Optics? We can help you avoid a costly visit to a hospital emergency room and those long wait times. Studies have shown that an overwhelming number of emergency room eye-related visits could have been treated in-office by an optometrist.

Each year there are 32,000 eye-related visits to emergency rooms. This accounts for 1.5% of all emergency room visits nationwide. Causes of the eye-related visits to emergency rooms include:

  • 33% conjunctivitis
  • 13% corneal injury
  • 8% corneal foreign body (something in the eye)
  • 4% hordeolum (stye)

The mean cost for eye-related visits to the emergency room is $989.30.
