Swift Care When You Need It
If you or someone you know experiences an eye emergency, please contact our team immediately. Depending on the severity of the emergency, we can help manage the situation and possibly preserve the sight of you or someone you love.
If your emergency occurs outside of our regular office hours, or if a severe eye emergency occurs, we recommend heading to your nearest emergency room or calling emergency services as quickly as possible.
How to Avoid Eye Emergencies
It’s essential to understand when you will need eye protection. Proper safety glasses can help reduce the risk of 90% of all eye-related injuries and emergencies.
Specific safety glasses are better for different types of activities, like playing sports or working in construction. We can recommend a pair of safety glasses right for your needs.
Common Eye Emergencies
No two eye emergencies are exactly the same. For the most comprehensive care possible, be sure to speak to us or your emergency team as soon as possible. Acting quickly could help manage a range of injuries before they cause permanent problems.
Several types of eye emergencies can occur. If any of the following happen to you or a loved one, seek help immediately.
Always ensure you wear protective eyewear whenever you’re using potentially hazardous chemicals. If chemicals contact the eye, flush the eye out with cool, clean water for 15 minutes and seek immediate help.
Foreign objects like dust or dirt can cause irritation and discomfort, but they can also damage the surface of your eye if they aren’t removed.
If you feel like there’s something in your eye that won’t flush out naturally, please call our team immediately.
