We’re Here for You When You Need Us Most

We understand that accidents happen, and we’re here to help. 

The well-being of your eyes is our top priority, which is why we urge you to contact us immediately or visit our office if you’re experiencing an eye-related emergency. Your eyesight is precious, and we are here to support you every step of the way.

If we’re not open and your injury can’t wait, visit the nearest emergency room or call 911.

What Is an Eye Emergency?

An eye emergency is any instance in which your eyes or sight are at immediate risk. These can include:

  • Sudden, unexplained eye pain
  • Sudden loss of vision
  • Blunt force trauma to the eye
  • Unknown debris in the eye
  • Punctures or abrasions of the eye (scratches)
  • Chemical exposure
  • Red eye

Severe allergic reactions, ocular discharge, sudden flashes of light, and floating spots may also indicate an eye emergency.

How to Protect Your Eyes from Injury

Accidents and injuries can happen to anyone at any time, but you can reduce the risk by following some simple safety procedures at home and at work.

If you experience any signs or symptoms of an eye emergency, seek medical attention immediately. Do not attempt to treat it on your own. Early intervention is key for possibly preventing long-term vision loss or blindness.

Many of us don’t think about the possibility of sustaining an eye injury while performing routine chores around the house, but 25% of eye injuries happen in the home. Some ways to help reduce the risk of eye-related emergencies at home include:

  • Wear protective eyewear when using power or playing sports.
  • Follow instructions on cleaners, fertilizers, or other chemicals.
  • Use caution when cooking with oils or grease.
  • Supervise children when they’re playing with toys or using tools.
  • Keep sharp objects away from small children.

If you work in dusty, dirty, or hazardous environments or around industrial chemicals, you will need to follow safety protocols to protect your eyes and vision. If you aren’t sure what safety protocols are in place, please speak to your manager. Some ways you can help reduce risk in the workplace are:

  • Use protective screens or grids to protect yourself from flying particles.
  • Stand behind safety glass or guards. 
  • Enclose sources of dust, particles, mist, or fibres.
  • Use ventilation systems to control dust and fumes.
  • Isolate hazardous operations.
  • Wear personal protective equipment, including safety eyewear, face shields, and visors.
