Your vision is precious and irreplaceable. When your eye health is at risk, you need to see an optometrist immediately.
Brighton Eyecare works hard to accommodate emergency appointments as much as possible.
If you think you’re experiencing an eye health emergency, contact us now. We will ask about your situation and instruct you on the appropriate next steps.
Corneal abrasions, or scratches on the front of your eye, are common and can be quite dangerous. If you believe you’ve scratched your eyeball, start by flushing your eye out with clean water to ensure nothing is caught in the eye tissue.
While you seek medical attention, be sure to avoid rubbing your eye, as that could make the injury worse.
If something like an eyelash or a fleck of makeup is stuck to your eye, try flushing it out with clean water.
If an object is actually embedded in your eye tissue, seek medical attention right away. Whether the object is stuck to the eye’s surface or embedded in your eye, you must avoid rubbing it to prevent any further damage.
Never use tweezers or any other kind of tool to remove something from your eye.
Any sort of chemical contact could be detrimental to your eye’s delicate tissues. If harmful chemicals touch your eyes, you must flush them out with clean water immediately for at least 15 minutes. Even if your eyes feel fine, you must flush them for the full 15 minutes to ensure all chemical traces are removed.
After 15 minutes of flushing, seek medical attention.
Brighton Eyecare is conveniently located in Brighton Marketplace just off McCormond Drive, between Save on Foods and The Keg.
