What to Do During Eye Emergency

When an eye emergency occurs such as a foreign object in the eye or a scratch to the eye, timing is everything when it comes to protecting and preserving your eyesight. In an eye emergency, you should go to the nearest emergency room. Do not try to take the object out by yourself if it has penetrated the globe. The emergency room staff will know the level of severity of the event and how best to treat the issue.

What To Do If You Have Injured Your Eye

It depends on the type of injury. Getting to the emergency room if it is something serious is the best course of action. Apply a cold compress to the injured eye if feasible. If you have a clean eye shield at home you can use that while on your way to treatment. Use your best judgment when caring for an eye emergency and seek professional help.

Should I See An Optometrist?

An optometrist may treat you at the emergency room or provide aftercare if the level of the injury warrants it.
