Emergency Eye Care

Signs and Symptoms of an Eye Emergency

Several signs and symptoms indicate a potential eye emergency. Call our optometrists immediately if you experience any of the following:

•             Sudden vision loss: This can be a complete loss of vision, blurred vision, or a dark curtain obscuring part of your field of vision.

•             Immense eye pain: Sharp, throbbing, or persistent pain in the eye often signals an underlying issue.

•             Eye floaters and flashes: A sudden increase in floaters or flashes of light in your vision can indicate retinal detachment.

•             Chemical exposure: If you get a chemical in your eye, immediate flushing with clean water for at least 15 minutes is crucial.

•             Eye injury: Any trauma to your eye, especially if it punctures the eye or causes bleeding, requires urgent medical attention.

•             Sudden double vision: Double vision can occur due to various conditions, with some requiring immediate medical intervention.

What to Expect During an Emergency Eye Exam

Our eye doctors will conduct a comprehensive eye exam to diagnose the cause of your eye emergency. This exam will likely involve a visual acuity test and examination of your eye to check for damage. We may perform tonometry to measure the pressure inside your eye. Depending on the suspected condition, our eye doctors might also use specialized tests to rule out other conditions.

Treatment for Eye Emergencies

Following the eye exam, our optometrists will discuss the diagnosis and recommend the most appropriate treatment plan. Your specific treatment will vary based on the underlying cause of your eye emergency. For example, we may prescribe eye drops or medications to address infections and inflammation. However, some emergencies may require surgery. We can refer you to an eye surgeon to treat these severe cases.
