do you need to go to the emergency room for an eye emergency?
If you are experiencing an eye emergency, your first thought may be that you need to go to the emergency room. However, studies show that a significant number of eye emergencies that are treated in emergency departments throughout the United States could have been treated by an optometrist. Not only could visiting an eye doctor in place of heading to the emergency room be a more comfortable experience in which you get the treatment you need faster, but you could also help to reduce E.R. crowding as a result. That being said, there are situations in which E.R. care is appropriate – please be sure to contact us immediately when are you experiencing an eye emergency, and we can direct you appropriately.
foreign body removal
A foreign body removal refers to anything that is within the eye that is naturally foreign to it, yet has become lodged within it. A foreign body within an eye is not only painful, but can be very scary too – foreign bodies can impair vision, lead to infections, and could even cause permanent damage. At Veld Vision Center, we are experts at removing foreign bodies, such as sawdust, contact lenses, sand, dirt, small flakes of metal, glass, and more. While some foreign bodies will dislodge on their own with time, if anything is stuck for more than a couple of hours, we highly recommend that you seek professional care.
