What Is an Eye Emergency?

If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, you require immediate medical attention:

  • Sudden partial or complete vision loss
  • Thick yellow, green, or white discharge from the eye
  • Sudden change in flashes or floaters in your vision
  • Blunt force trauma to the head or eye
  • Blood in the anterior chamber between the cornea and iris
  • Scratches on the cornea
  • A foreign object in the eye
  • A chemical splash or burn in the eye
  • Acute-angle closure glaucoma

This is not an exhaustive list of eye emergencies. If you feel that you are experiencing an eye emergency, please seek medical attention as soon as possible.

Treating an Eye Emergency

A chemical splash can seriously damage the delicate tissues of the eye. You can minimize the damage by immediately flushing the affected eye with clean water for 15 minutes. Once you’ve rinsed your eye as much as possible to rid it of the chemical, seek medical attention.

If you have a foreign body in your eye, such as an eyelash or speck of dirt, flush the eye with clean water to remove it. Please never use tweezers or other sharp instruments in or around your eyes.

If the object has sharp edges or is embedded in your eye’s tissue, do not attempt to remove it. Please seek medical attention and refrain from touching or rubbing the area.

Preventing an Eye Emergency

Whether at work or play, wearing safety glasses or goggles can make a huge difference in preventing eye injuries. Talk to our doctors and staff at Macha Eye Care about safety eyewear.
