Seek Immediate Medical Assistance

If you notice sudden reduced vision, lots of flashes or floaters, eye redness, discharge, or pain, have your eyes examined immediately by credentialed and experienced eye care providers. 

At Foresee Eyecare, our doctors can handle all non-surgical emergency eye care and can arrange for proper care when needed. We are established, referred, and well known by many of the local community walk-in clinics and will do whatever we can to treat you as soon as possible.

Any eye emergency can seriously damage your visual health—it’s often vital that you seek medical attention immediately to protect your vision. 

What Are Some Types of Eye Emergencies?

Corneal Abrasion or Scratch (Cut or Scratch on the Eye)

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, or you fall, or otherwise have any kind of blunt force trauma to the eye, 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 damage to your eyes. While you’re handling chemicals, always ensure you 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 as best you can. Then, contact your eye doctor or head to the nearest emergency room.

Chemical eye burns can be divided into 3 categories: alkali, acid, and irritants. All 3 can cause acute damage. If your eyes encounter chemicals, you must visit a medical professional right away.

As the name suggests, retinal detachment happens when the retina at the back of the eye departs from its normal position. It may not cause 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 and flashes
  • Blurred vision
  • Reduced peripheral vision
  • A dark shadow over your visual field

Take Care of Your Eyes

You don’t need to be a hero when it comes to eye emergencies. They are serious and should be treated as such. Prevent further or permanent damage during an eye emergency and seek immediate medical help.
