What Counts As An Eye Emergency?
Eye emergencies involve situations where your eye health or vision health is at risk. As trained eye specialists, our careers involve working with patients with various eye conditions. Eye emergencies are most often time sensitive and require quick and proper treatment to prevent permanent or long term damage. Under the care of our skilled physicians we have on-site access to treatment options to resolve your concerns and when necessary, provide referrals as needed.
Most of all, receiving emergency care from our team means you’ll receive treatment in an environment you’re familiar with, under the hands of specialists you can trust.
Instead of spending hours waiting in an emergency room, give us a call if you’re experiencing any of the following:
- Scratches or Abrasions: Small cuts and scratches can worsen if they show signs of infection or don’t show signs of healing within the first few days of the injury.
- Sudden Vision Loss: Sudden vision loss indicates traumatic injury or severe disease progression to the inner parts of the eye that require immediate attention.
- Flashes of Light: Seeing flashes of light without any external source can indicate severe migraines and symptoms of torn retinas, which can immediately lead to blindness if not treated by an eye doctor. It can also indicate an underlying condition, such as Stickler’s Syndrome, HIV/AIDS, and retinitis pigmentosa.
- Foreign Objects In The Eye: Foreign objects such as wood or metal can usually be flushed out with water, blinking, and tearing. However, if they’re unable to be removed, they can cause infections, eye damage, and even vision loss.
- Persistent Redness, Pain, or Discharge: Under these circumstances, redness and discharge from the eyes indicate conjunctivitis or uveitis, and these infections will require the diagnosis of an ophthalmologist to diagnose and treat.
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, please give us a call to get you in as soon as possible.
