Give Your Eyes the Care They Deserve

What To Do If You Have an Eye Emergency

First things first. Don’t panic! Staying calm is the best way to help you think straight and help those around you to remain calm. Often, it’s not necessary to go to an emergency room for eye emergencies. In fact, the vast majority of people who go to the emergency room for eye care could have received treatment from their local optometrist instead.

If you’re unsure whether you’re experiencing an eye emergency, give us a call immediately! Delay may increase the risk of serious complications and may result in vision loss.

Until you see your eye doctor or seek urgent care, avoid the following:

  • Don’t try to remove an embedded object out of your eye
  • If your eye is injured, don't press on it or rub it
  • Dry cotton and sharp instruments such as tweezers should never be used on the eye.

Whether you've had a workplace accident or an at-home incident, our eye doctors are here to help

Dr. Lorraine Payan is the best eye care provider I’ve had. You feel like you’re speaking to an o... ld friend with her. She’s non judge mental about your vision and encouraging. I’ve had eye care providers in the past who make me feel bad about my astigmatism by saying how distorted or bad my eyesight was which they often told me they chalked up to me not wearing my glasses. I wear them daily and got to a point in my childhood and teens where I was afraid to try at the eye doctor because I knew what they’d say. When I found Dr. Payan, she made me realize I could actually see better than I was letting on and I now don’t have an uncomfortable stigma with eye doctors any longer.
