As part of our commitment to preserving eyesight, Eye Institute physicians provide emergency services at Froedtert & MCW health network for patients with eye injuries and other vision-threatening emergencies. Several physicians are always on call for the hospital to care for emergent eye problems. In addition, physicians representing subspecialties are also available for timely consultation. 

The Eye Institute also provides fast answers for people who call in with urgent vision concerns. Our main line is staffed by nurses who can answer questions about your eyes and let you know what to do in urgent situations. Call 414-456-2020 on weekdays from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. For eye injuries after hours and on weekends, patients should go to the nearest Emergency Department.
