Eye Emergencies

Some eye conditions require immediate attention. If you experience any of the following symptoms please call us at
and we will see you as promptly as possible:

  • Eye pain
  • Sudden loss of vision
  • Eye trauma – possibly from a sports-related injury or foreign body in the eye such as metal or chemicals.
  • Sudden onset of flashes, floaters or shadows in your vision.
  • Extreme light sensitivity
  • Unusual redness, itching or ocular discharge

If your eye injuries are severe you should proceed to the nearest emergency room or call 911, especially if your injuries are a direct result of a bad motor vehicle accident, blunt force trauma or burns.

Sufferers could benefit from targeted allergy eye drops. Eye rubbing is counter-productive and can be harmful. Please call to schedule an office visit if these symptoms are intense or more than occasional.
