Give Your Eyes the Care They Deserve

What To Do If You Have an Eye Emergency

First things first. Don’t panic! Staying calm is the best way to help you think straight and help those around you to remain calm. Often, it’s not necessary to go to an emergency room for eye emergencies. In fact, the vast majority of people who go to the emergency room for eye care could have received treatment from their local optometrist instead.

If you’re unsure whether you’re experiencing an eye emergency, give us a call immediately! Delay may increase the risk of serious complications and may result in vision loss.

Until you see your eye doctor or seek urgent care, avoid the following:

  • Don’t try to remove an embedded object out of your eye
  • If your eye is injured, don't press on it or rub it
  • Dry cotton and sharp instruments such as tweezers should never be used on the eye.

Whether you've had a workplace accident or an at-home incident, our eye doctors are here to help

Memorial eye center was great from there staff to the doctor and they don't have the puff machine to... put in your eye. I was scared at first but they put my mind at ease. One thing I didn't like was they up sell you on everything so beware of that.

Two weeks ago, my husband and I both visited Dr. Derek Le for the first time for our annual vision e... xams. He was very thorough, not rushed, friendly, and answered all our questions in easy-to-understand terms. This week, my husband received his new lenses. He is so pleased with his improved vision. He commented that the new lenses are exactly right for his needs. Thank you, Dr. Le!

I went to Vision Source Missouri City to get new glasses because my prescription changed by just a l... ittle. The staff was amazing and so helpful in assisting me in picking a pair that made me feel confident. Turn around time to get them was amazing. It’s crazy to think a small change in a prescription can make the difference in clear vision. I’m so happy I didn’t decide to stay with My old pair. This place was helpful with knowledge and patient with me taking forever to find the right pair. Highly recommend.

Eye Emergencies FAQs

What is considered an eye emergency?

Eye emergencies are anything that may cause permanent damage to your eyes or vision without timely intervention from an eye care professional.

The most common types of eye emergencies include:

  • A blow, poke or other trauma to the eye
  • Sudden loss of vision in one or both eyes
  • Chemical spills in the eye
  • Foreign object embedded in the eye
  • Sudden appearance of light flashes or floaters
  • Contact lens lost in the eye
Does an eye infection require urgent care?

Symptoms of an eye infection typically include itching, burning, redness, crusty and watery eyes. See a Missouri City eye doctor if your symptoms last over 4 days or if you experience intense pain, redness, blurred vision or light sensitivity.

What should I do if a foreign object enters my eye?

Most of the time, a person can easily remove debris from the eye by repeatedly blinking to get the debris out. If that doesn't work, you can wash your eye with saline (sterile salt water) to flush out any dust and dirt from your eye, or use streaming tap water.

However, to scratch your cornea while attempting to get an object out, which can cause further site-threatening complications.

So the best thing you can do in this kind of eye emergency is to get to your eye doctor in Missouri City as soon as possible.
