Common Eye Emergencies

An eye emergency can involve redness, swelling, and severe pain. It can be caused by infections, a foreign particle entering your eye, trauma from an impact, and more. When it comes to eye emergencies, urgency is essential. Reach out to us as soon as you start to feel that something is not right.

 

Those suffering from an eye emergency will generally be able to tell when there is something amiss with their eyes. However, they might neglect coming to us and wait for the symptoms to subside which can make the damage worse. The following symptoms indicate an eye emergency and the need for an emergency appointment with us: 

  • Double vision
  • Loss of vision
  • Foreign elements like chemicals and metals in the eye
  • Bleeding
  • Swelling
  • Pain
  • Redness
  • Styes
  • Pink eye
  • Trauma to the eye 
  • Sudden onset of floaters or flashing lights

Please contact us immediately at Langley Optometry if you notice any of these signs or abnormalities with your eyesight. We can also help you determine if your situation requires a trip to the emergency room or an urgent referral to a specialist.

What to Avoid

Those suffering from eye emergencies often panic and take steps that can worsen their symptoms and worsen damage. We recommend avoiding the following actions during an eye emergency:

  • Pressing your eyes
  • Rubbing your eyes
  • Removing a foreign object that is lodged in your cornea
  • Using cotton swabs
  • Delaying getting help

It is crucial to get help from eye doctors who have the right training when suffering from an eye emergency. Undertaking a do-it-yourself approach can have severe consequences.
