What is emergency eye care?

Emergency eye care refers to any services you need when your eye health or vision is at stake. While many eye conditions develop slowly over time and don’t cause many complications along the way or are very easy to manage, other eye problems are much more urgent and need immediate attention.

In the event of any eye emergency, you should do everything you can to avoid rubbing your eyes, using tweezers or other tools on or near your eyes, or putting medications in your eyes. Aside from getting to Elite Eye Care as soon as possible, you may need to flush your eyes out with clean water to remove any chemicals harming them.

While you can’t always predict an eye emergency, the team at Elite Eye Care gives you recommendations for preventing future eye emergencies. You should use protective eyewear in situations where it’s necessary, use caution while working with flammable objects or power tools, and visit for your regular comprehensive eye exams.
