  • One eye not moving like the other
  • Bulging eye
  • Double vision
  • Bleeding from the eye

Examples of Eye Emergencies

There are many examples of eye care emergencies. If you experience any of the following injuries, please call our office immediately:

  • Cuts or scratches to the eye
  • Foreign object stuck in the eye
  • Black eye
  • Trauma to the eye or eye area
  • Chemical splash

Don’t Treat Yourself at Home

While you might be tempted to alleviate your symptoms at home, it’s not a good idea. Eye emergencies require treatment from an experienced eye care professional. If you’re experiencing an ocular emergency, do not do any of the following:

  • Apply pressure to the eye
  • Use tweezers or tools near the eye
  • Attempt to dislodge or remove objects
  • Use medications or ointments in the eye

The only exception to at-home treatment is in the case of chemical splashes. If you sustain a chemical interaction with your eye, immediately flush your eye with cool, clean water. Then seek medical attention as soon as possible.
