South Chicago Heights Emergency Eye Exams
Emergency Eye Exams for Patients in South Chicago Heights
Protecting your eyes is important, which is why you surely schedule annual or biannual eye exam and medical eye exam appointments. But even with routine eye care and checkups, an eye emergency can take the healthiest of patients by surprise. If you suffer an eye emergency in South Chicago Heights, our experienced eye doctors at Veld Vision Center are available to provide you with the treatment you need.
Our Emergency Eye Exam Services
We offer a variety of emergency eye exam services, including services for patients who:
- Break or lose their glasses, or lose their contacts. If you rely on contacts or glasses to correct your vision, then you know that a day without these corrective tools can be impossible, impairing your ability to work, drive, or perhaps even prepare food and care for yourself. If you have a contacts or glasses emergency, call our offices and we will get you in as soon as possible to get you fitted for a new pair and restore your vision.
- Suffer sudden vision loss or vision changes. A change to your vision–such as seeing flashes of light or floaters in your vision–or the loss of vision, can be very scary. Sudden loss of vision or a vision change could be the result of a serious eye disease, such as acute glaucoma, or the sign of another serious health complication. Any changes in your vision that are acute require emergency eye services. Do not hesitate to seek care.
- Have signs of an eye infection. An eye infection can be painful and unpleasant to live with, and when infections are serious, they could even have lasting negative consequences. If you have signs of an eye infection, such as redness in the eyes, swelling, discharge, crusty eyes, pain, or more-than-normal tear production, please contact us for an emergency eye exam to get the treatment you need.
- Have something stuck in their eye. Getting something stuck in your eye can be nerve-wracking. Luckily, most foreign objects in eyes will make their way out within a couple hours, or can be removed by gently rinsing the eyes with water. If you have something stuck in your eye that you have been unable to extract on your own, contact us for an emergency eye exam where we will use anesthetic drops to numb your eye and remove the object.
