Comprehensive Care When It Matters

Eye emergencies can happen when you least expect them, putting your eye health and vision at risk. Knowing where to go during an emergency can help you get treatment as soon as possible. 

We’re here to help when you need us most, providing timely medical care. If your emergency happens outside our office hours, contact us or visit your nearest emergency room for treatment.

What Is an Eye Emergency?

An eye emergency is any situation where your eye health or vision is at risk, such as a cut, scratch, or hit to the eye. These situations can lead to further complications, making timely eye care important. Even if an injury seems insignificant, visiting your eye doctor is the best thing you can do for your ocular health. 

You should visit our office or an emergency room immediately if you experience any of the following

  • Bruises around the eye
  • Chemical splash
  • Discharge from the eyes
  • Enlarged pupils
  • Extreme itchiness
  • Eye bleeding
  • Eye pain or soreness
  • Scratched or cut eye
  • Flashes and floaters

What About Flashes & Floaters?

Flashes in your vision may look like bright streaks of light, like a flash of lightning. Flashes occur when the vitreous (gel-like fluid that fills the eye) rubs or pulls on your retina.   

Floaters in your vision may look like small dots, patches, or lines, like a dark spot your eye can’t focus on. Floaters occur when clumps of gel or proteins float in the vitreous of your eyes. These clumps cause shadows against the retina, creating the small blind spots in your vision. 

Flashes and floaters are not uncommon. In fact, anyone can experience flashes and floaters. However, flashes and floaters are an emergency if: 

  • There are suddenly a lot of new floaters/flashes in your vision 
  • You notice a shadow in your peripheral (side) vision 
  • A gray “curtain” is covering part of your vision

Please seek immediate medical attention if you experience any of these symptoms.
