Service Areas

Urgent Eye Care Clinic

The Urgent Eye Care Clinic service area of the Illinois Eye Institute provides treatment for eye emergencies. Events that risk eyesight require prompt treatment to prevent vision loss. For same-day eye care, we highly recommend that you call ahead before coming in so that we may best serve your needs. We attempt to accommodate emergency walk-ins during our normal office hours based on availability. Eyewear repair is considered non-emergency and should be scheduled as a standard appointment.

 

At certain times, the wait at the clinic may be several hours, and an appointment cannot be guaranteed. Walk-ins are not accepted within 90 minutes of closing time. If we are unable to provide care, we may encourage you to see your primary care physician or a different provider. In cases of emergency, the IEI will redirect you to an ER.

 

If you have an eye emergency after business hours or on Sunday, call 312.225.6200.
