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

Yesterday was my first visit as I have a business that I am at during the week that is a good distan... ce from my home area. I have to say this group was top notch. Dr. Anderson did a great job explaining everything with me and really took her time in making sure I had the perfect prescription for my eyes. The young lady who fitted me for my glasses was also extremely patient and friendly. I left feeling great knowing when my glasses arrive I will be able to find my golf balls again. 🙂

We made the switch from a local giant chain store vision center and the difference is phenomenal! I ... feel we get so much better personalized care at Harrison Eye Clinic. Not only that, but the store vision center told me my son’s insurance wouldn’t pay for his glasses and I would have to pay 100% out of pocket. I made him an appointment at Harrison’s and insurance paid 100%! I was not a penny out of pocket! Dr. Harrison as well as Dr. Anderson are both very sweet and kind. You can tell they truly love their job. They are both also wonderful with pediatric patients.

I like getting all the reminders they send. At my age, I NEED THAT! I can't remember a whole year ... in advance. I like the insurance verification they do ahead of time. It's a very well run place full of competent and friendly people.

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 Paris 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 Paris as soon as possible.
