What Is Urgent Eye Care?
Our eyes are fragile. When injured, urgent eye care may be necessary. At Heart of America Eye Care, our eye doctors may be more equipped to handle an eye emergency than a doctor in a traditional emergency room. Some urgent eye issues may include:
- Sudden vision loss
- Injury to the eye
- Double vision
- Foreign body removal
- Corneal abrasion
If you have an issue you feel may need urgent care, reach out to one of our locations in Shawnee Mission or Overland Park, KS, or Belton, MO.
"Staffs are friendly. Dr Edwards is very nice, patient and explains everything very throughly."- V.C. / Google / May 26, 2023
"I've been seen by Dr. Cline for a number of years and have been impressed with her knowledge, her thoroughness, and her pleasant demeanor. She ha a good staff support."- A.T. / Healthgrades / Mar 06, 2023
"Dr. Kwapiszeski (Dr. K) is the most thorough, and detailed, ophthalmologist I’ve ever experienced, concerning my eye care. He takes the extra time to examine (and then re-examine) your concerns, to diagnose any issue methodically (and he’ll get it right)! He’s a serious guy, but he’s genuine, and will take the time to answer all your concerns (in great detail). There’s a reason why Dr.K is known as one of the top eyecare physicians in the field. If you’re looking for someone who’s got the answers, look no further than Dr.K. The only critiques, I can consider, is that his intellectualism can be intimidating (and over my head), and landing an appointment, can take several weeks (at no fault of his own). He’s very popular, and sought after (in the community), but, he’s well worth the wait! In my opinion (and I research, to find the best physicians) he’s the best ophthalmologist, in the KC Metro region."- J.S. / Google / Jul 26, 2022
"A medical condition forced me to do a walk-in w/o a prior appointment. Dr. Ciccio worked me in without any hesitation. She diagnosed my problem and listened attentively to my concerns. I would highly recommend her to anyone."- J. / Healthgrades / Jun 02, 2022
"Dr. Carter is brilliant at what she does. The Best"- R.S. / Google / Jul 26, 2021
