If our office is closed, proceed to the nearest emergency room for urgent care.

Seek Urgent Medical Attention

Certain symptoms should not be ignored and may require urgent medical attention, including:

  • Extreme eye pain
  • Sudden vision loss or changes
  • Sudden onset of flashes or floaters
  • Swelling in or around your eye
  • Corneal abrasions (scratches on the surface of your eye)
  • Foreign objects in your eye
  • Significant ocular discharge

If chemicals come into contact with your eye, seek immediate medical attention, even if your eye feels normal.

What Is Considered an Eye Emergency?

Any sudden symptoms or injuries affecting your eyes, such as pain, vision loss, flashes, floaters, swelling, or foreign objects, can be considered eye emergencies. If in doubt, seek urgent medical attention to safeguard your eye health.

First Aid for Common Eye Emergencies

For common eye emergencies, we’ve included some basic first aid instructions that you can refer to in an urgent time of need until you can see an eye care practitioner.

Flush your eyes with cool, clean water for at least 15 minutes. Continue flushing even if your eyes feel better before the full 15 minutes. Diluting and removing chemicals from your eyes is critical. After flushing, contact Eyesis Eyecare Center or proceed to the nearest emergency room.

If you suspect you have a scratch on your eye’s surface, seek immediate attention at our center or the nearest emergency room. Do not rub your eye or irritate it in any way.

Avoid rubbing your eye. Blink several times to help your tears wash the object out. If unsuccessful, or if discomfort persists, contact Eyesis Eyecare Center or visit the nearest emergency room.
