What Is An Eye Emergency? 

 

Here is a list of few symptoms that warrant a call to our office:

  • Red eyes

  • Eye pain

  • Discharge

  • Eyelid styes or swelling

  • Contact lens-related complications 

  • Sudden vision loss 

  • Foreign objects in the eye 

  • Eye trauma

  • Sudden onset of flashes and floaters

  • Ocular Migraines

  • “Pink Eye”

 

In most cases, it is best to call your eye doctor if you are experiencing an eye emergency instead of going to urgent care or an emergency room. Some emergency rooms or urgent care facilities may not be equipped with appropriate diagnostic equipment to properly examine the eye which can result in misdiagnosis and delay in care. Most urgent care facilities will have you follow-up with your eye doctor anyways, so it saves you money from spending hundreds of dollars on urgent care bills.

Northwest Family Eye Care should be your first call if you are experiencing an eye emergency.

What To Do When Experiencing An Eye Emergency

​Eye emergency constitutes as sudden changes in vision, flashes or black spots (floaters) in vision, sudden onset of eye pain or double vision. If you have a contact lens stuck in your eye, wood pieces or metal shavings or feels like a foreign object under the eyelid, make sure to give us a call.

If you are experiencing any of the symptoms listed above during normal business hours, call us immediately! Dr. Kaur or one of our technicians will be able to let you know if your symptoms require immediate attention or get you scheduled appropriately. If you are an existing patient of Northwest Family Eye Care, we may be able to schedule a Telemedicine Virtual Appointment. 

We know eye emergencies are hardly convenient, which is why we are here for you 24/7. Call (425) 226-3444 if you are experiencing an emergency after hours!
