Eye Emergencies

At Eye Care Consultants, we understand that eye emergencies can occur suddenly and require immediate attention to prevent further damage and preserve vision.

Our team of skilled ophthalmologists is equipped to handle a wide range of ocular emergencies with prompt and compassionate care.

Eye Exam


Eye emergencies encompass a variety of conditions that require urgent evaluation and treatment to prevent vision loss or other complications. From traumatic injuries to sudden vision changes, our team is here to provide expert care when you need it most.


Symptoms of an eye emergency may include sudden vision loss, eye pain, redness, swelling, discharge, flashes of light, floaters, foreign body sensation, and double vision.

Common Treatments

Treatment for eye emergencies depends on the specific condition but may include irrigation for chemical burns, foreign body removal, suturing for lacerations, medication for infections, and referral for further evaluation or surgery as needed.


If you have a foreign body in your eye, do not rub it. Rinse your eye gently with clean water or saline solution and seek medical attention if the object does not flush out or if you experience persistent pain or irritation.

While urgent care centers may provide initial evaluation and treatment for some eye emergencies, it is best to seek care from an ophthalmologist who specializes in eye conditions for comprehensive assessment and management.

Sudden vision loss requires immediate medical attention. Contact our office or go to the nearest emergency room for evaluation to determine the cause and appropriate treatment.

Many insurance plans cover eye emergency services. Our team can assist you with insurance verification and billing to ensure you receive the care you need.
