What Are Common Types of Eye Emergencies?

Here are a few of the most common types of eye emergencies and some recommendations on how to handle them.

Cut or Scratch on the Eye (Corneal Abrasion)

A corneal abrasion is caused by something getting in your eye that shouldn’t be there—for example, getting poked in the eye or having a speck of dust or sand scratch the eye’s surface. If you experience redness, discomfort, or light sensitivity from a corneal abrasion, seek immediate treatment.

Do not touch or rub your eye. Also, avoid covering it with a dark patch—bacteria can get into your scratch and grow in dark, warm places.

If you are in a serious accident or sustain a blow to the eye, you could develop eye inflammation, internal bleeding, bruising, fractures, or cracks in the bones surrounding the eye.

If you are hit with something, fall, or otherwise have any kind of blunt force trauma to the eye or head, you require immediate medical attention.

Chemical injuries don’t happen exclusively in a science lab. Many cleaning products, beauty products, and aerosols are made with chemicals that can cause eye damage. While you’re handling chemicals, always use protective safety eyewear.

If you splash chemicals in your eye, rub your eyes after handling chemicals, or get sprayed, rinse your eyes under tepid water for about 15 minutes to flush out the chemicals. Then, contact your eye doctor or head to the nearest emergency room.

As the name suggests, retinal detachment happens when the retina at the back of the eye departs from its normal position. It may be a slight tear or a complete detachment.

You may not experience immediate pain, but the warning signs can indicate that you need medical attention. If retinal detachment goes untreated, it could lead to total vision loss.

You may experience:

  • Sudden appearance of many floaters & flashes
  • Blurred vision
  • Reduced peripheral vision
  • A dark shadow over your visual field
