Give Your Eyes the Care They Deserve

What To Do If You Have an Eye Emergency

First things first. Don’t panic! Staying calm is the best way to help you think straight and help those around you to remain calm. Often, it’s not necessary to go to an emergency room for eye emergencies. In fact, the vast majority of people who go to the emergency room for eye care could have received treatment from their local optometrist instead.

If you’re unsure whether you’re experiencing an eye emergency, give us a call immediately! Delay may increase the risk of serious complications and may result in vision loss.

Until you see your eye doctor or seek urgent care, avoid the following:

  • Don’t try to remove an embedded object out of your eye
  • If your eye is injured, don't press on it or rub it
  • Dry cotton and sharp instruments such as tweezers should never be used on the eye.

Whether you've had a workplace accident or an at-home incident, our eye doctors are here to help

I went there today for my first time. I saw Dr. Hemphill and she is the friendliest doctor I have ev... er seen. She was so thorough at explaining the types of glasses/lens’ available, was very personable and knowledgeable as well. I wish I could see her for more than my eye needs.

Dr.Mary is amazing me and my daughter kailynn love her. She will go above and beyond to make sure yo... u are getting what you need. She is truly the best I have ever came across in the health care field. She knows her job and knows it well. We are moving out of state but I will definitely make the drive because she's that good, and I know I will never find another Dr. Mary anywhere.
- Mar. 23, 2015
I absolutely love Dr. Mary!!! She is very thorough, knowledgeable & personable. I absolutely enjoy h... er appointments. She likes to dig to the root of your problem not just cover the surface stuff. She will also follow up with you to make sure everything is going well. She always leaves me with "call me if you need anything." I wish all doctors were like her. I enjoy her practice so much I have paid out of pocket when I didn't have any insurance. She is worth every penny!
- Feb. 20, 2013
I just had an appointment there with Dr. Hemphill for my 6 year old daughter. She was fantastic and... will become the eye doctor that our whole family uses! The office staff was great as well. I would recommend their office to anyone!

What is considered an eye emergency?

  • Sudden loss of vision in one or both eyes
  • Chemical spills in the eye
  • Foreign object embedded in the eye
  • Sudden appearance of light flashes or floaters
  • Contact lens lost in the eye
Does an eye infection require urgent care?

Symptoms of an eye infection typically include itching, burning, redness, crusty and watery eyes. See a Sylvan Grove eye doctor if your symptoms last over 4 days or if you experience intense pain, redness, blurred vision or light sensitivity.

What should I do if a foreign object enters my eye?

Most of the time, a person can easily remove debris from the eye by repeatedly blinking to get the debris out. If that doesn't work, you can wash your eye with saline (sterile salt water) to flush out any dust and dirt from your eye, or use streaming tap water.

However, to scratch your cornea while attempting to get an object out which can cause further site-threatening complications.
