Our staff is able to schedule visual field studies and other diagnostic tests prior to and during regular office hours subject to staff and equipment availability.

We are generally able to schedule eye emergency appointments for patients of our practice the same day, depending on the nature of the emergency. Please contact our staff at (310) 451-3911 as early as possible during the day to discuss the nature of the emergency and to schedule an appointment.

Our office voicemail system is available during our lunch and after-hours for routine appointment requests or other non-urgent calls.

If you are a patient of our office and are calling for emergency assistance during our lunch or after office hours, please dial (310) 451-3911 and press "0" to reach a live operator. State that you have an eye emergency, and give the nature of the emergency. The operator will immediately contact Dr. Gardner or her on-call ophthalmologist.

For our patients who are out of town, we are usually able to assist, with the listings of the American Academy of Ophthalmology, in the identification of board-certified ophthalmologists in other parts of the United States. The AAO website is www.aao.org. The box in the lower right-hand corner of the website home page is entitled "Find An Eye MD." Enter your city, state, and the type of ophthalmologist you need, such as "Comprehensive" or "Retina/Vitreous." A list of board-certified ophthalmologists will be presented for that location.
