What To Do If You Have an Eye Emergency

close-up of eye

First things first. Don’t panic! Staying calm is the best way to help you think straight and help those around you to remain calm. Often, it’s not necessary to go to an emergency room for eye emergencies. In fact, the vast majority of people who go to the emergency room for eye care could have received treatment from their local optometrist instead.

If you’re unsure whether you’re experiencing an eye emergency, give us a call immediately! Delay may increase the risk of serious complications and may result in vision loss.

Until you see your eye doctor or seek urgent care, avoid the following:

  • Don’t try to remove an embedded object out of your eye
  • If your eye is injured, don't press on it or rub it
  • Dry cotton and sharp instruments such as tweezers should never be used on the eye.

Whether you've had a workplace accident or an at-home incident, our eye doctors are here to help

DeMisha clearly loves what she does and cares about her customers.

I called late on a Friday afternoon, they said walk-ins are welcome. They accepted my daughter’s i... nsurance and worked with us to find a style of glasses that would fit her needs. The ladies explained the process of picking out glass to fit a certain way and why. It was an amazing experience.

Helped in every way.

I did not have my eye exam here, but I did purchase my glasses here because of DeMeishah. She helpe... d me in the past with picking out glasses at another location and I was so impressed with her that when the time came I needed another pair of glasses and was able to find out that she now is working here, I followed her. She knows her stuff. She's very knowledgable about glass frames and lenses, is very patient, sweet, great personality and honest. She will be honest with what does/does not look good on you and what will or will not work well for your prescription. It's important to her that you like how you look in your new glasses and that they are comfortable. She will not steer you in the wrong direction. Once I chose my frames and lens the turnaround time was not long.

What is considered an eye emergency?

  • Sudden loss of vision in one or both eyes
  • Chemical spills in the eye
  • Foreign object embedded in the eye
  • Sudden appearance of light flashes or floaters
  • Contact lens lost in the eye
Does an eye infection require urgent care?

Symptoms of an eye infection typically include itching, burning, redness, crusty and watery eyes. See a Battle Ground eye doctor if your symptoms last over 4 days or if you experience intense pain, redness, blurred vision or light sensitivity.

What should I do if a foreign object enters my eye?

Most of the time, a person can easily remove debris from the eye by repeatedly blinking to get the debris out. If that doesn't work, you can wash your eye with saline (sterile salt water) to flush out any dust and dirt from your eye, or use streaming tap water.

However, to scratch your cornea while attempting to get an object out which can cause further site-threatening complications.
