Common Eye Emergencies
We treat all kinds of eye emergencies at Eyes on Plainville. Learn more about the common eye injuries we see.
Certain eye diseases can severely impact your vision and health. Depending on what eye disease you have, you may experience severe symptoms and side effects that require emergency attention.
Chemical injuries can cause damage to your vision and eyes. If chemicals have come in contact with your eyes, flush your eyes with lukewarm water for at least 15 minutes, and seek medical attention.
If you experience trauma to your head, neck, or shoulder, it can put your entire visual system at risk. Even if you don’t notice vision symptoms right away, you should always have your eyes checked by your optometrist as soon as possible.
Objects such as shards of glass or metal can cause long-lasting vision damage if they enter your eye. If any large object is in your eye, the most important thing you can do is seek emergency help and refrain from touching it.
