Emergency Eye Care
Eye emergencies symptoms can include eye pain, redness, itching, foreign body sensation or vision changes such as sudden vision loss, flashes in vision or floatters. Some eye emergencies can be a very painful and an uncomfortable experience. For instance we commonly see corneal ulcers in contact lens patients. Some of those eye emergencies can be sight threatening and it is always best to address them without any delay.

Eye emergencies can happen for any number of reasons, the most common forms of eye related emergencies include trauma to the eyes, such as corneal abrasions, infections such as pink eye and retinal problems. If you experience any unusual symptoms it is best to consult right away with an eye doctor who can address the issue and guide you , and take action either in the form of medication prescription or by referring you to a sub-specialty eye doctor.
Delaying care can result in a poor visual outcome, leaving permanent damage. Of note, some systemic emergencies can first manifest as eye problems, this can the case for strokes. We always say, it’s better to be safe rather than sorry so make sure you visit your optometrist or ophthalmologist at the earliest to assess the urgency of your particular situation.
Any sudden onset of double vision, intense eye pain, loss of vision, dimming in vision, flashes of light must be addressed immediately.
