EMERGENCY EYE CARE
Our office is available for emergency eye care during regular office hours. We also have an emergency phone line dedicated for our patients to get in contact with one of our on-call doctor after hours. If you have symptoms of “flashes of light”, new “spots/floaters” or a “curtain/veil” in your vision, you could be experiencing an ocular emergency. The retina does not have any pain sensors so these symptoms are your best clue that there may be something wrong. In contrast, the cornea (the clear window on the front of the eye) has more nerve pain sensors that any other part of the body. Injury to the cornea can be incredibly painful. However, in both cases, immediate treatment is needed. Our office staff is well trained to know how to expedite the treatment of these type of injuries. Call immediately when an injury occurs. We are here to help.
