Call us or come see us if you feel like you have something in your eye, like a metallic foreign body. We will use a microscope to verify whether you have something stuck on your cornea, or under your lids. Save yourself hours in the ER by having our optometrist remove metallic foreign bodies and the corneal rust that builds up from them.
If you experienced any trauma to your eye or surrounding area, make sure you get your eye properly evaluated for surface cuts, scratches, and internal injuries. If you experience any eye pain, especially with nausea, vomiting, or headache, please seek urgent eye care.
Sudden Change in Vision
Any sudden change in central or peripheral vision warrants immediate attention by an eye care professional. There are many causes for this, some of which are medical emergencies and can be sight-threatening. Another concerning issue is sudden double vision. Call us immediately if you experience any of these symptoms.
Seeing flashes, floaters, and visual disturbances can be alarming. Find peace of mind by getting a proper diagnosis from an optometrist. The optometrist will examine if the problem warrants urgent referral to a retinal specialist for physical problems like retinal holes, tears, or detachments.
