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.

Dear Valued Patient,

At Family Eye Care, the health and safety of our patients and employees is our top concern.

Our office has a long-standing practice of disinfecting all areas of our office throughout the day, and all clinic areas are disinfected prior to every patient seen.

As always during the peak of flu season, and with the growing concerns around the Coronavirus, we have taken extra measures to increase frequent cleaning and have provided additional training and precautions to our staff to help keep their health and yours safe.

As a reminder, if you have fallen ill, have traveled abroad, or had close contact with someone who has traveled abroad within the past 14 days and are due to be seen for an appointment, please let our office know. We will be happy to change your appointment to ensure the safety of our patients and staff.

Feel free to contact us with any questions. Thank you.
