What Constitutes an Eye Emergency?

Even a seemingly minor injury or issue could compromise your vision. If you have sustained an eye injury, you should seek medical attention.

Common symptoms of eye emergencies include:

  • Eye pain
  • Sudden vision loss
  • Extreme sensitivity to light
  • Swelling in or around your eye
  • Chemical contact or burns
  • Corneal abrasion (a scratch on the surface of your eye)
  • Significant eye discharge or redness
  • A foreign object stuck in your eye
  • A sudden increase in floaters, particularly if it is accompanied by flashes of light.

Are Flashes & Floaters a Cause for Concern?

Most of us have at least a few floaters. These small shadows or squiggly lines are usually no cause for concern. As we age, the vitreous humor inside our eyes begins to lose its jelly-like consistency and begins to liquefy. However, it doesn’t liquefy evenly, so small gelatinous specks remain suspended in the less viscous fluid, causing floaters.

Flashes, on the other hand, are a cause for concern. These flashes of light typically occur when the vitreous shrinks, pulling at the retina, but they can also occur when you get hit in the eye or rub your eyes too hard.

However, if you begin to experience repeated flashes of light accompanied by a shower of floaters, you may be experiencing a retinal tear or retinal detachment. Both of these are very serious and require immediate medical attention to help prevent permanent vision loss. An untreated retinal tear can lead to retinal detachment, so even if your symptoms appear minor, you should seek professional help.

First Aid Strategies For Common Eye Emergencies

Some eye emergencies tend to happen more often than others. If you experience any of the following, please employ these first aid strategies and then seek medical attention.

Chemical contact can cause significant damage and permanently compromise your vision. If you get any harmful chemicals in your eye, you should rinse your eye thoroughly with cool, clean water for at least 15 minutes. Even if your eye begins to feel better before the full 15 minutes has passed, you should continue rinsing. This helps ensure any residual chemicals are washed away from the area around your eye.

Once you have finished rinsing, you should contact

The cornea is the thin, transparent membrane that covers the iris and pupil. It is extremely delicate and easily damaged, and even a light impact or small scratch is incredibly painful and can leave your eye vulnerable to infection.

If you have scratched your eye, do not rub it. Rubbing your eye can move debris around, causing further damage. If there is something trapped between your eye and eyelid, you may be able to safely dislodge it by flushing your eye with cool, clean water. However, even if you are able to dislodge the object on your own, you should still seek medical attention so that a professional can assess the damage and provide a course of action.

Just like with a corneal abrasion, make sure you do not rub your eye since this could lead to further damage. If there is something trapped on the surface of your eye, you may be able to dislodge it by flushing your eye with cool, clean water before seeking medical attention.

If there is something embedded in your eye, do not touch it. Call one of our offices, proceed to your nearest emergency room, or contact 911.

OSHA & Workplaces Emergencies

If your job exposes you to a higher risk of injury, make sure you understand your company policies regarding workplace safety. If you’re unsure of what your workplace safety policies are, speak to your supervisor or check the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standards.

Always wear the appropriate safety gear. If you are unsure of what gear you need, please speak to your supervisor.
