What Is Considered an Eye Emergency?

If you are experiencing an eye emergency, call us as soon as possible at (703) 297-4137.

Any injury or sudden symptom that could affect your vision in the long term is considered an eye emergency. If you are experiencing any of these issues, call us for an emergency appointment:

  • Scratched eye/cornea
  • Chemical contact
  • Foreign object in eye
  • Severe eye pain
  • Very red eye
  • Sudden onset of floaters or flashes
  • Sudden, continuous blurry vision
  • Sudden loss of vision

Emergency Eye Care First Aid

Do not rub your eye but keep it closed. Do not put an eye patch or bandage over your eye. Scratches on the eye are painful and they also make the eye prone to infection. Even for minor scratches, you should make an emergency appointment so we can take the necessary steps to prevent infection.

Rinse your eyes with water immediately for at least 15 minutes. Even if the pain goes away sooner, it’s important to continue rinsing your eyes with cool, clean water for a full 15 minutes. Otherwise, any chemical residue can continue to damage your eyes. After rinsing, call us for an emergency appointment. Be ready to tell us what substance entered your eyes and bring the container, if possible.

Never try to remove a foreign object from your eye yourself. If an object has embedded in your eye, visit us or an emergency room right away. If fragments or debris have entered your eye, it’s also important to make a visit to our office. Debris, and especially metal fragments, can cause scratches, scarring and damaging your eye.
