Immediate Action Could Preserve Your Family’s Vision

Accidents happen, but how you respond to them is the difference between losing or preserving your sight or the sight of someone you know.

If you’re experiencing an eye emergency, please contact our team immediately. For emergency service outside of our regular office hours, please contact or visit your nearest emergency room.

Proper Eyewear Could Save Your Sight

Whether you’re at home, work, or school, using appropriate eyewear can help protect your vision for various tasks. We recommend wearing protective eyewear whenever you’re working with machinery, chemicals, or gases. Protective eyewear could also help shield your eyes from particles like dust and dirt.

Wearing the right eye protection helps prevent 90% of all eye-related emergencies. Please speak to our team today to get help finding the proper eye protection for you.

Common Eye Emergencies

We recommend contacting our team immediately, regardless of the emergency you or someone you know might be experiencing.

In some cases, eye diseases can also lead to sudden symptoms like eye pain, nausea, and vision loss. If you risk developing eye disease and experience similar symptoms, please get in touch with us as soon as possible.

Several other events can cause eye emergencies, and depending on the severity, we may recommend going straight to an emergency room.

Physical Impact & Trauma

Impact and trauma around the eye can lead to various symptoms, including vision loss. Regardless of the severity, we always recommend calling our team to have the eye examined for issues the trauma may cause.

Some common symptoms include:

  • Black eyes
  • Eye pain
  • Swelling
  • Redness
  • Eye bleeding

Chemicals can seriously affect your eyes, leading to various symptoms like pain, burning, irritation, redness, wateriness, or even sudden vision loss. We always recommend wearing eye protection when working with chemicals, no matter how common the product.

Chemicals that could lead to an emergency include:

  • Bleach
  • Alkali
  • Soaps
  • Vinegar
  • Battery acid
  • Fertilizers
  • Pesticides

Sometimes, small particles of dirt and dust may land on your eye surface and cause irritation.

Your tear film could help wash away these particles, but larger specks of material, like metal shavings and wood chips, could cause more severe symptoms and possibly damage your eye.

Severe eye emergencies require immediate care. Please visit your nearest emergency room for emergencies like cuts, punctures, and tears.
