Emergency Services

Eye Emergencies Happen, We’re Here to Help

Even the best-laid plans do not turn out like you expect. You can take all the safety precautions and emergencies still happen. When they happen to your eyes, call Willoughby Doctors of Optometry first.

Urgent Eye Situations

  • Corneal abrasions or scratches
  • Chemical in the eye
  • Sudden changes in vision
  • A foreign object in the eye
  • Partial or complete vision loss
  • Sudden increase or changes in floaters
  • Flashes in your vision
  • Thick yellow, green, or white discharge in your eye or eyes
  • Blood in front of the iris (please find the nearest emergency facility)

First Steps in Common Eye Emergencies

Calling our clinic is your best first step. We can help walk you through these at-home treatments to best prevent permanent damage. If it is outside our office hours, follow these instructions before heading to an emergency facility in your area.

Object in the Eye

If you have something stuck in your eye, do not attempt to pull it out with your hands. Flush your eye out with water to dislodge it. If it does not budge, it is time to trust the professionals. Do not try to use tweezers or pliers to remove a foreign object stuck in your eye.

If you have splashed or sprayed a chemical substance into your eyes, it is important to act fast. As quickly as possible, begin flushing your eye with water and continue to do so for 15 full minutes. Do not stop when your eye feels better, continue to rinse your eyes for 15 minutes before seeking medical attention at an emergency facility.
