  • A red painful eye with a swollen eyelid with a fever

  • A red painful eye over the weekend

We recommend going to Toronto Western Hospital or St. Michael's Hospital as both have Ophthalmology Residents and Ophthalmologists 24/7 on call and you will be seen by an eye doctor. At a local hospital you may not be seen by an ophthalmologist but may be provided with a later appointment to be seen by an ophthalmologist on another date.
