At Advanced EyeCare our team is here for you in the event of an emergency. There are times when you may need immediate care for your eyes. If you experience eye trauma or get anything in your eye, especially chemicals and foreign objects, you should be seen immediately to limit potential damage to the eye.
You should also come in for emergency care if you experience any of the following symptoms:
- Painful and/or red eyes
- Inability to open the eyes
- Flashing lights (which may induce vomiting)
The sooner that you receive treatment, the quicker you can have relief and start to feel better. Early detection and treatment of problems can also help prevent serious damage to your eyes or vision. If you feel that you should be seen for any reason, please give us a call right away. After hours, you should go to the nearest hospital for care or, if necessary, call 911.
If you have any questions about an eye problem that you are concerned about, please call us today at (407) 333-3937.
