We are here to help you

When urgent eye care needs arise, our emergency eye doctor at EyeQ Family Optical is available to help you. We understand that unexpected eye issues happen and when they do, we are here to assist you in these types of situations.  


When Do You Need Emergency Eye Care? 

While you will not know the extent of an eye issue until you get it checked, eye problems can range from mild to severe, so it is important to see an eye doctor right away if you are experiencing issues. 

Neglecting to see an emergency eye doctor or ophthalmologist could lead to potentially long-lasting negative consequences for your eye health. 

Call our office immediately if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms:  

  • Eye discharge 
  • Sudden change in or loss of vision 
  • Double vision 
  • Blurry vision 
  • Irregular eye movement 
  • Itchy eyes  
  • Extreme sensitivity to light   
  • Burning or stinging sensation in the eyes    
  • Red or bloodshot eyes   
  • Bruising or bleeding around the eyes  

These symptoms may stem from various eye issues, such as eye infections, corneal defects, damage to the retina, or having an object stuck in your eye. Because some problems can be contagious or worsen over time, it is important to seek emergency eye care right away. 

While you wait for an emergency eye doctor to meet with you, take these steps to avoid inadvertently making the problem worse: 

  • Wash your hands to avoid potentially spreading infection. 
  • Do not attempt to remove something stuck in your eye.  
  • Avoid touching or rubbing your eyes, which may make them more irritated. 
  • Do not drive or operate machinery if your vision is impaired.
