Emergency Eye Care

Any eye pain should be addressed as soon as possible.  We treat all of the following:

  • Corneal Foreign Body:  If you feel you have gotten something into your eye, such as a piece of metal, wood, or debris from a ceiling tile. It is especially important that you come in if you have been hammering or grinding.
  • A Corneal Abrasion is a scratch on the front part of an eye.  It can be from something as simple as a child's fingernail, a piece of paper, or burning cigarette ember.   needs immediate care.
  • Sudden blurred vision or loss of vision
  • Sudden floaters or flashes of light may be a sign of a Retinal Detachment
  • Lids crusted together when waking up can be a sign of conjunctivitis.
  • Sudden redness on the white part of the eye may be a hemorrhage.
  • Seeing red may indicate there is blood in the eye.
  • Eye allergies may come on quickly and may cause the eye to become red or feel like something is in the eye.
  • Being hit in the eye and having a "black eye".
  • Corneal Ulcer can be caused by contact lens over where or other reasons.
  • Sudden and intense eye pain can be caused by a virus such as herpes.
  • For some people, losing a contact lens or losing a screw in their eyeglasses may seem to be an emergency.  We will try to help you with that as well although those can usually wait until normal office hours.
