What Is An Eye Emergency?

An eye emergency is any situation in which your vision and eye health are at immediate and serious risk. This can constitute anything from having a small piece of debris in your eye to high impact trauma. Regardless of what the situation may be, you should never hesitate to seek medical help if you feel your vision is at risk.

Eye Emergencies Could Include:

  • Chemical exposure
  • A foreign object such as dirt or debris entering the eye
  • Blunt trauma, such as a baseball hitting your eye or falling and hitting your eye
  • An abrasion to the front surface of your eye
  • A sharp object puncturing your eyes surface
  • An infection
  • A sudden allergic reaction
  • Sudden onset of vision loss
  • Sudden onset of floaters and/or flashing lights

What To Do In An Eye Emergency

If you or someone you are with is experiencing an eye emergency, you should seek medical attention immediately through your nearest professional provider. If it is a severe emergency you should go to the hospital as soon as possible.

How We Can Help

Our doctors can assist in most non-surgical eye emergency treatments. Call ahead to see whether the situation may be better treated at a hospital emergency facility.
