Emergency Eye Care

What Is Emergency Eye Care?

Emergency eye care consists of services to help address issues such as:

  • Corneal abrasions
  • Eye infections
  • Trauma to the eye, such as black eyes or following a car accident
  • Debris in the eye
  • Detached retina
  • Sudden onset of blurry vision
  • Sudden onset of vision loss
  • Eye pain

With the help of an emergency eye care optometry specialist, you can find help to treat your emergency eye issues and prevent complications such as infections and vision loss.

Do I Need to Visit an Eye Doctor?

If you notice increased eye pain or if you're suffering from symptoms that don't seem to be getting better on their own, it's important to visit an optometry specialist right away.

Your eye doctor will determine the severity of your eye issues, such as any infections or traumatic injuries to the eye. If your eye doctor determines that you need follow-up care, they can provide treatment such as:

  • Emergency surgery to repair abrasions or trauma to the eye
  • Eye exams to determine the extent of your injuries
  • Medications to help treat eye infections that can pose a threat to your vision
  • Surgery for issues like a detached retina

Your eye doctor will also conduct follow-up care to ensure that your emergency eye care is helping treat your emergency eye situation.
