What constitutes an eye urgency or emergency? Opinions vary widely, but a sudden loss of vision is an emergency, so is an alkaline burn to the eye for example with ammonia or limewash. In fact, suggests any sudden onset of visual symptoms is an urgency and a consultation with licensed doctors at EyeHelpOnline is indicated.

The week I moved to Ecuador I got a red eye and didn't know what I had. I needed help right away and the Dr online diagnosed my condition and prescribed the right medicine and it went away. It was so convenient and I was fine after that. I did it in my hotel room!
