What NOT to do if You Experience an Eye Trauma

If you have injured you eye, NEVER rub the eye or apply pressure to the eye.  This may only worsen the problem. If you believe you have a foreign object in your eye, NEVER attempt to remove it yourself or allow another person to attempt to remove it. Instead, seek the help of an eye professional immediately.  If after normal business hours you should have someone take you to the nearest hospital emergency room. Ignoring eye trauma and assuming it will go away could lead to permanent eye damage.  The key word is urgency! If you need emergency eye care, call our offices immediately and arrange to be seen as soon as possible.

What Constitutes an Eye Emergency?

The fact of the matter is that there is no clear definition of what constitutes an emergency. Your eyes are too precious to risk ignoring any occurrence that brings eye discomfort.  If you ever experience any of the following, you should seek immediate help.

  • Any foreign substance in the eye such as a chemical, metal or wood
  • Sudden double vision
  • Swelling of the eye
  • You are unable to open your eye
  • A scratch to the eye
  • Sudden loss of vision
  • Painful or Red Eyes
