Understanding Eye Emergencies

Eye emergencies involve any serious injury or disease threatening your eye health or vision. These include incidents like chemical exposures, foreign objects in the eye, cuts or punctures, serious bruises or burns, sudden blurred vision or loss of vision, and unexplained eye pain. In many cases, there are other options than waiting for a regular appointment. An emergency eye doctor can provide immediate attention to alleviate pain, treat the underlying issue, or even save your sight.

What to Expect During an Emergency Visit

In an eye emergency at our clinic, our top priority is addressing your immediate concern and stabilizing the situation. We'll conduct a thorough eye examination, determine the nature and severity of the problem, and outline a treatment plan. Besides the appropriate treatment, we also guide what you can do at home to assist in the healing process.

Preventing Eye Emergencies

While some emergencies are unpreventable, many eye injuries can be avoided by taking some precautions:

  • Always Wear Protective Eyewear During Risky Activities:

    This includes activities like sports, DIY home improvements, or working with chemicals.

  • Follow Guidelines When Using Contact Lenses:

    This includes proper cleaning and not sleeping in lenses not designed for overnight wear.
