Eye Care Services

The Tuba City Regional Health Care Corporation (TCRHCC) Service Unit Eye Care Services Department provides you and your family comprehensive eye care.  We provide routine eye exams, glasses prescriptions, glaucoma care, diabetic eye exams, and acute care.  Surgical services include cataract surgery, Yag capsulotomy, pterygium excision, and glaucoma to name a few. 
We have two locations:

  • Our larger clinic and surgery department is located at TCRHCC Hospital
  • and our satellite clinic in Flagstaff, which is is located at Sacred Peaks Health Clinic West (SPHCW).

The Eye Care Services Department offers two ways to obtain an appointment for routine eye exams, routine diabetic eye exams, MVD forms, and eye glass prescriptions:

  • TCRHCC Eye Clinic will have several same day appointments set aside each day on a first come, first serve basis.  These will be available Monday-Friday and can be scheduled by phone or in person at the Eye Clinic front desk.  Since we have a limited number of these slots, it is best to call early in the morning starting at 7:15 am. The TCRHCC Eye Clinic phone is 928-283-2748.  TCRHCC does observe Daylight Savings Time, which is important to considerer for your appointments.

Of course, patients with non-routine, urgent eye problems such as eye infections, sudden loss of vision, eye pain, etc. will be seen an a walk in basis on the day they present to the TCRHCC clinic starting at  7am, and the last urgent slot at 3:15,  Monday-Friday here at TCRHCC.  The clinic is closed for lunch from noon – 1:00 pm and one afternoon a month for department meetings and trainings.    

Patients need to arrive at the clinic 30 minutes early to allow for the patient registration process.  If a patient is late by 15 minutes or more, it is considered a no show/broken appointment.  In fairness to all the other scheduled patients, we may need to reschedule depending on the availability.  If a patient has 2 or more no show/broken appointments, they may not schedule another appointment for 30 days in order to allow access to care for all the other patients for non-surgical appointments;  for those surgical patients they will be referred back to whom originally referred.  If a patient cannot make an appointment and informs the Eye Department 24 hours ahead of time, this is not considered a broken appointment & can be rescheduled if the patient chooses.
