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.
I absolutely love this place and these people are AMAZING! They have helped my son tremendously and I’ve even recommended for my mom to start coming here!
I’ve been going to Macha Family Eyecare for about 15 years. I absolutely couldn’t say enough about Dr. Macha, and his staff. They are friendly, and patient, and knowledgeable.
I once had an incident happen to me on a Saturday night with my contacts. Dr. Macha got back to me that evening and told me what to do for my eye until Sunday morning and made a special trip into his office to care for my eye. To me that says a lot. Can’t go wrong with these people.
Wonderful care and great service. The in-depth eye exam is excellent. Dr. Macha and all his staff are caring people. They also offer special plans for people without insurance. I wouldn’t go anywhere else
This was a wonderful first visit experience! The front desk staff was warm and professional, the technicians were knowledgeable, and the doctor was efficient and kind. They explained everything to me clearly and I felt like a valued customer. I would highly recommend!
