When is an Eye Problem an Emergency?
Every person with sight relies on their eyes to help them navigate the world, and sudden loss in vision can be concerning and stressful. The question is, how do you know when your eye problem is an emergency and when can it wait for a regular appointment window?
- Sudden Vision Loss – If you experience sudden vision loss in one or both eyes and it does not return, you should seek medical treatment immediately. Reasons for sudden vision loss could include any number of factors, but with swift action, your vision may be saved.
- Sudden Light Sensitivity – While many of us are sensitive to direct light, if you suddenly cannot bear any light and your eyes are very painful, seeking medical treatment is best. Typical causes are inflammation of the iris, which could lead to other eye diseases if not treated quickly.
- Extreme Eye Pain – High blood pressure can make anyone feel poorly and has an immediate effect on the eyes, as well. Acute glaucoma can cause extreme eye pain and lead to blindness if not treated right away. If your eyes are very painful, especially with a sudden onset, you’ll want to seek a medical professional.
- Eye Trauma – Any activity that has caused trauma to the eye should be treated as an emergency. A medical professional will be able to assess the eye for severity of damage and apply the necessary methods for protection and preservation of sight.
The good news is that the eye is an amazing organ that has the ability to heal quickly. Having an emergency number programmed for your optometrist will ensure that you have medical assistance a short phone call away should you ever experience an eye emergency.
