Sauk Village Emergency Eye Exam
Emergency Eye Exams for Patients in Sauk Village
There are a number of health complications that do not always require the intervention of a doctor. For example, if you have a stomach ache, it will likely pass within a day. Or, if you throat is sore, rest may be enough to cure it without ever seeing a specialist.
When the problem lies with your eyes, however, the case is not the same; if you have an eye problem, it could be an emergency. At Veld Vision Center, we provide emergency eye exams for patients in Sauk Village and surrounding areas – you can make your appointment online or by phone today.
What Is an Eye Emergency in Sauk Village?
At Veld Vision Center, we take eye health very seriously. When you have any of the following complications, we consider it to be something that requires an emergency eye exam, and encourage you to make an appointment as soon as possible.
- Red eye, eye pain, and other signs of infection. Eye infections are not always serious, but they can be, which is why we encourage you to have the problem assessed and diagnosed by an ophthalmologist before you dismiss it as insignificant. Signs of infection that require care include red eye, eye pain, discharge, crustiness of eyes, and swelling.
- Loss of vision or acute vision problems. Losing your vision or suffering any other acute vision complication (meaning that problem occurs suddenly and unexpectedly) is very, very serious, and could even be a sign of another health problem. If you do not seek emergency care, it could result in permanent loss of vision.
- Foreign body in the eye. Removing a foreign body from a patient’s eye is one of the most frequent services that we perform. Foreign bodies can include things that you put into your eyeball intentionally but can now not remove, such as contact, to items that become wedged in the eye accidentally, such as sawdust. Foreign bodies can be very irritating, and can cause damage to the eye if not removed. Our removal process is easy, and with numbing drops in the eyeball, is pain-free as well.
- Lost glasses or contacts. If you rely on contact or glasses to see, breaking your glasses, running out of contacts, or losing either can put you at a serious disadvantage, and prevent you from doing even the most basic of things. If you are in a position where you cannot see as a result of a lack of corrective lenses, contact us and we will get you into our offices as soon as possible
