Give Your Eyes the Care They Deserve

What To Do If You Have an Eye Emergency

First things first. Don’t panic! Staying calm is the best way to help you think straight and help those around you to remain calm. Often, it’s not necessary to go to an emergency room for eye emergencies. In fact, the vast majority of people who go to the emergency room for eye care could have received treatment from their local optometrist instead.

If you’re unsure whether you’re experiencing an eye emergency, give us a call immediately! Delay may increase the risk of serious complications and may result in vision loss.

Until you see your eye doctor or seek urgent care, avoid the following:

  • Don’t try to remove an embedded object out of your eye
  • If your eye is injured, don't press on it or rub it
  • Dry cotton and sharp instruments such as tweezers should never be used on the eye.

Whether you've had a workplace accident or an at-home incident, our eye doctors are here to help

I've never been to a place where the staff & the doctor are equally as kind and helpful, until Crown... Vision Center. The environment is so welcoming and even as someone new to the eye doctor, my kids and I felt informed and listened to. We will definitely be back.

Great experience with this location, friendly staff and doctor, explained everything to me as we did... pre-test and the eye exam, staff worked with me to find new glasses, explained my options in regards to new lenses available.

I went here for the first time and felt like I’d been going my whole life. The staff is so friend... ly and personable. I got an excellent deal on contacts. Great experience.

The previous doctor I had (from the chippewa location that is no longer open) had given me an incorr... ect prescription for my contacts. They weren’t comfortable after a little while of wearing them and I couldn’t understand why. After speaking with Dr. Resuli and her explaining to me why my original fit was uncomfortable. She got me in contacts that have uv protection and are astigmatism correcting plus they fit the shape of my eyes. I don’t feel them and I actually prefer to wear them instead of my glasses now. Thank you !

Straightforward service

Great experience. Was able to get an appointment for a medical eye exam same day! Set up my appointm... ent online, and was able to fill out my medical info online before heading to their location. One of the few places in town that I found would take me without insurance & didn't have a several week or month waiting list. The staff at the front desk were super kind and helpful. Dr. Eneida was great & very patient with me as I asked a bunch of questions. They gave me the option of having my prescription printed out or to buy frames in store.

I 100% recommend Dr. Eneida. It was my first time in this location (many times in other Crown Vision... Centers), and I will definitely make this location my primary center for my vision. Staff very friendly and they don't push you to buy their stuff.

Eye Emergencies FAQs

What is considered an eye emergency?

Eye emergencies are anything that may cause permanent damage to your eyes or vision without timely intervention from an eye care professional.

The most common types of eye emergencies include:

  • A blow, poke or other trauma to the eye
  • Sudden loss of vision in one or both eyes
  • Chemical spills in the eye
  • Foreign object embedded in the eye
  • Sudden appearance of light flashes or floaters
  • Contact lens lost in the eye
Does an eye infection require urgent care?

Symptoms of an eye infection typically include itching, burning, redness, crusty and watery eyes. See a Carondelet eye doctor if your symptoms last over 4 days or if you experience intense pain, redness, blurred vision or light sensitivity.

What should I do if a foreign object enters my eye?

Most of the time, a person can easily remove debris from the eye by repeatedly blinking to get the debris out. If that doesn't work, you can wash your eye with saline (sterile salt water) to flush out any dust and dirt from your eye, or use streaming tap water.

However, to scratch your cornea while attempting to get an object out which can cause further site-threatening complications.

So the best thing you can do in this kind of eye emergency is to get to your eye doctor in Carondelet as soon as possible.
