When it comes to your eyes, you want to make sure that they are in good, qualified hands. You want to go to an eye clinic that has experienced and knowledgeable doctors on staff. You want to find someone who has time to sit down with you and take time to really understand what is going on with your eyes. You then want them to explain what they are going to do to fix it. You want an eye clinic with friendly staff that will make you feel comfortable and welcome. When you feel like all your needs are being met, you will be more at ease and will trust your optometrist.
It is important to find an eye clinic that is a good fit for you because you will be visiting with them at least yearly if you have contacts or glasses. Yearly check-ups are important for your eye health. It is important to make sure that your eyes are healthy and that your prescription has not changed. It is also important for a yearly check up to make sure you do not have any eye problems such as glaucoma, cataracts, or evidence of any other eye disease. When you feel comfortable with your doctor and staff, it will be easier for you to go in for visits.
You will also need an eye clinic if you are having any problems with your eyes such as infection, red eyes, dry eyes, or sudden blurry vision. They will be able to get you in quickly and solve the problem so that you can get better.

We have all had a moment in time when we think we have injured our eye or experienced blurred vision during something routine. Most of the time, we just brush it off once the situation resolves itself and are relieved to go about our day. But when should you visit an emergency eye clinic to make sure your eye health is preserved?
Eye Infections, Red or Painful Eyes, or Uncomfortable, Itchy Eyes. Any time you think you may have an eye infection, have red, painful eyes or they are uncomfortable and itchy but you aren’t sure what’s happened to cause them to feel this way, please visit an emergency eye clinic. Eye infections can sometimes be contagious and, if left untreated, may cause further damage. Allergies and other external factors may also cause your eyes to be painful or uncomfortable. Having an eye professional examine your eyes is critical to resolving these issues.
Debris or Foreign Objects in the Eye. Sometimes your work or home environment may cause you to have debris or a foreign object becoming lodged in your eye. When this occurs, it is important to allow an eye professional to examine the eye and determine the best course of action.
Contact Lens Issues or Injuries to the Eye. Contact lenses can tear or become damaged, or there may be an injury to the eye requiring an eye professional to assess the situation. Never try to resolve the situation at home! If you have any concerns, please make sure to visit an emergency eye clinic.
At Dr. Miller & Dr. Tilis Family Optometry, our practice has an emergency eye clinic specifically for those situations when you may need unexpected eye care. Our clinic is open weekdays 10:00am to 1:00pm on a first come, first serve basis. Allow us to provide you with expert care.
