Whenever you’re working at a hazardous job site, working with chemicals, or playing sports where the chance of injury is high, make sure you have the right pair of protective glasses.

If you’re not sure where to start looking for protective eyewear, visit our team today. We can recommend certain brands and styles based on your needs. 

Types of Eye Emergencies

Should you contact us or visit an emergency room? Get in touch—we can help determine the best course of action for managing the issue.

Some eye diseases, like acute angle-closure glaucoma and wet macular degeneration, can cause sudden symptoms that may lead to vision loss. If you risk developing an eye disease and experience flashes and floaters, eye pain, redness, and blurry vision, be sure to get in touch with our team immediately.

Physical trauma refers to any blow to the eye. It can cause bruising (black eye), eye bleeding, pain, or even vision loss.

Chemicals coming into contact with your eye can cause a severe eye emergency. Ensure you’re wearing proper eye protection when working with chemicals like chlorine, hydrochloric acid, bleach, battery acid, drain cleaners, and fertilizers.

If you feel like something is stuck in your eye, you might be able to wash it away either by warm water or using eye drops.

However, if you have particles like wood or metal in your eye, speak to our team as soon as possible. These particles can damage your cornea and possibly your vision.

Severe eye emergencies include punctures, cuts, scrapes, and scratches to the eye, causing immediate vision loss, bleeding, and other emergency symptoms.

Visit your nearest emergency room or contact emergency services for help treating this situation.

Get in Touch Today

Emergencies happen, but you can help preserve your sight or the sight of someone you know by calling a medical professional immediately.
