Ophthalmic emergencies are quite frequent, as many eye diseases are acute in nature. Emergencies occurring during business hours will be seen on the same day. For weekend and after hours emergencies, we recommend evaluation by the staff at Animal Referral and Emergency Associates, Oradell Animal Hospital, and Animerge. For these emergencies Drs. Brown and Holmberg will consult with the emergency staff and see the patient the following morning, if necessary.
