Give Your Eyes the Care They Deserve

What To Do If You Have an Eye Emergency

close-up of eye

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 can never say enough good things about this office! I have been going to the eye doctor for over ... 40 years. Dr. Krause is the bomb! I have never had anyone sit and explain every detail with plastic eyeball parts and pictures and diagrams and internet information like she does. They are consistently courteous! They have gotten me in ASAP when we felt like it was an emergency with my retina history. LOVE it here!!

It had been a while since I went to an eye place with such courtesy, I love the attention I received... and the professionalism.

Dr. Julie is awesome! She was pleasant, personable, thorough, and patient with all of my questions a... nd concerns. She is an exemplary healthcare provider, and I recommend her without reservation.

Excellent service, super nice staff, always takes extra special care and they’re very courteous. V... ery clean and cautious during the pandemic. They wait for you at the door, open the door for you so you don’t have to touch anything, they take your temp and give you antibacterial hand sanitizer before you come in and sit down. And they only scheduled people spread out so there was no more than two people in the waiting room at a time. They cleaned down all of their equipment while I was still there and right after I used it. I've been having a lot of problems with my vision, allergies, dry eyes amongst other things and they were very generous with different samples so I could try some drops and contacts out before they confirmed my prescription or before I would actually have to pay for it. They were waiting at the door when I was done open the door for me so I could walk out without having to touch it as well.

If you want an unbeatable experience, look no further than Dr. Julie! She is knowledgeable and wonde... rful all around. Let me tell you a quick story about some contacts she recommended for me and how they already proved to be an upgrade after having them for just a couple of weeks! I was playing indoor soccer as a Goalkeeper and the ball was kicked at me from about four yards away and it hit me square in the eye. I saved it and when ref asked if I was okay and I said that it would have hurt more if the ball went in. But my contact miraculously stayed in! There chance that would have happened with my old contacts. Thank you so much to Dr. Julie and her team! Book your appointment at Advanced Eyecare today!

I live 2minutes from this office and my lens popped out my frames mid-workday while cleaning them (... I haven't had these frames for more than 2wks) and I panicked because my Optometrist is all the way in Overland Park, KS. I immediately drove to this location on a prayer and pocket full of hope that they could fix my frames and they did! Thank you so much to the Ladies at the front desk who assisted me and whoever fixed my frames inside. This office is close to home, so I will be switching my family to this office based on location and my experience with them. True lifesavers and I look forward to doing business with you all! Thank you again!

Eye Emergencies FAQs

What is considered an eye emergency?

Eye emergencies are anything that may cause permanent damage to your eyes or vision without timely intervention from an eye care professional.

The most common types of eye emergencies include:

  • A blow, poke or other trauma to the eye
  • 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 Raytown 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.

So the best thing you can do in this kind of eye emergency is to get to your eye doctor in Raytown as soon as possible.
