Your eyes are extremely delicate and intricate. They have their own protection system made up of your eyelids and eyelashes, but sometimes this is just not enough. Especially when you consider how much we rely on our eyes – 80% of the information we take in is visual – protecting your eyes is important.
However, when that safety system fails and you experience an eye emergency, do not hesitate: call us. We leave room in our schedule for emergency eye appointments so that we can be there when you need us.
Call our office immediately if you experience any of the following:
There are several eye emergencies, you can administer some first aid before seeing a doctor. Should these happen to you or someone in your care or vicinity, here are the steps you can undertake.
Run lukewarm water over the surface of the eye for 15 minutes. Even if it begins to feel better, undergo at least 15 minutes of rinsing. This will get any lingering chemical off your cornea or sclera. When visiting our clinic, bring the chemical with you so we can better address your injury.
If an object is stuck in the eye, do not attempt to pull it out on your own. If it is a fragment or shard of something on your eyeball, you may be able to rinse it off. If it will not budge, please head to the nearest clinic or make an emergency appointment with us as soon as possible.
