Emergency eye care is a type of medical care that is needed when a person is experiencing an urgent eye problem or injury. An optometrist can diagnose and manage many eye conditions and diseases, including eye infections, pink eye, conjunctivitis, eye pain, styes, and retinal detachments.
When an eye emergency occurs, a person should seek treatment as soon as possible. If the problem is severe, they may need to be seen in an emergency room. At House of Optical, our optometrists regularly manage eye emergencies or make proper referrals to the emergency room, depending on the severity of the condition.
