Where To Go for Emergency Eye Care?

When emergencies happen, you may naturally think about going to the ER, but in most cases, the emergency room will require a long wait, result in an expensive bill, will not have the appropriate eye examination equipment, and the ER will end up referring eye emergencies to an optometrist anyway. Avoid wasting your time and money and visit the Eye Associates of Winter Park eye doctors first! Our doctors are eye specialists, have the proper skills, knowledge, and diagnostic equipment to take care of eye emergencies as quickly and effectively as possible.

What is Considered an Eye Emergency?

Eye injuries and serious eye conditions are considered emergencies that require immediate and specialized attention. Eye emergencies that require urgent eye care include:

  • A sudden decrease in vision, or loss of vision
  • Sudden flashes, floaters, or “curtain coming down” over vision
  • New case of double vision and/or eye turn
  • Blunt trauma to the eye
  • Chemical burn
  • Ocular foreign body
  • Ocular abrasion
  • Red, painful eye
  • Loss of peripheral vision lasting more than an hour
  • Severe light sensitivity (photophobia)
  • New unequal pupil sizes
  • Severely swollen, hot, and painful eyelid

While the issues below are, of course, important to us, they do not require urgent eye care. Non-emergencies that can be handled during the next normal business hours include:

  • Mild non-painful red eye
  • Small, localized bump on the eyelid (stye) with little to no pain
  • Medication refills
  • Lost or broken glasses
  • Lost contact lens(es)
