Mansfield Emergency Eye Care
Our emergency optometrist at Hayden Optometric is available to help you when urgent eye care needs arise. Unexpected situations happen. We understand this and are available to assist you in these emergencies.
Eye emergencies are different from other medical emergencies, and we are not available 24/7. If you are experiencing a serious emergency that requires immediate attention, please go to the nearest emergency room.
Emergency Eye Care: When Do You Need It?
If you are experiencing acute eye issues, it is important to see an eye doctor right away. Emergency eye problems can range from mild to severe. It is wise to see an emergency eye doctor sooner rather than later in these situations. Neglecting to see an emergency ophthalmologist or eye doctor may lead to serious or potentially permanent consequences for your eyes.
If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, call our office right away:
- Unusual eye discharge
- Sudden change in vision
- Loss of vision
- Double vision
- Blurry vision
- Unusual glare or halo around lights
- Irregular eye movement
- Itchy, red, or bloodshot eyes
- Extreme sensitivity to light
- Burning or stinging sensation in the eyes
- An object embedded in the eye
Eye infections, corneal defects, damage to the retina, or having an object stuck in your eye can all contribute to these issues. Seek emergency care right away, as some problems can be contagious or worsen over time.
