Most people never anticipate experiencing an eye emergency, but it happens to people of all ages on a daily basis. Unfortunately, if you don't seek proper treatment right away, some eye emergencies could leave you with permanent eye and/or vision damage. For this reason, it's important to understand exactly what constitutes a visit to an emergency eye doctor.
One of the most common eye emergencies we see in our office is that of being struck in the eye with a foreign object. Not only can this be an extremely painful experience, but depending on the object, it could also cause severe damage to the structures of the eye. Any time there is a foreign object in the eye that is causing pain and cannot be removed, this is considered an eye emergency and should be treated promptly by a professional. The same applies to foreign objects that may not be lodged in the eye but have torn or otherwise damaged the eye itself.
Another relatively common eye emergency is a situation where those annoying "floaters" in the eye appear and do not go away after an extended period of time. While temporary floaters are not anything to be concerned about, floaters that do not dissipate on their own could be a sign of a serious eye problem, such as the early stages of macular degeneration. If left untreated, this could lead to permanent vision loss. The same could apply to a situation where you're experiencing seemingly random flashes of light in your vision.
If you're experiencing symptoms of an eye emergency, please do not put off seeing an experienced optometrist as soon as possible! Unfortunately, eye emergencies can quickly develop into permanent problems with your eye and vision health if they're not treated properly and promptly. Here at The Eye Institute of Wyoming, P.C., our eye doctors have the experience, knowledge, and resources to provide you with the emergency care and treatment you need. Simply give us a call and let us know you're experiencing an eye emergency; we'll provide you with guidance from there.
Eye emergencies can be scary, but our Casper and Douglas optometry team is here to help in your time of need. Give The Eye Institute of Wyoming, P.C. a call at either of our area locations to find out more about our emergency eye care services.
