Loss of vision, infections, pain or trauma are urgent conditions. We make every effort to attend to these immediately. Patients coming in for emergencies have the distinct advantage of seeing an ophthalmologist right away, which is often more effective than going to a walk-in clinic or ER. Dr. Segal accepts workers comp insurance and has experience treating workplace injuries.
