If you ever feel like you are having an eye emergency, you are going to want to visit a trusted, experienced doctor that you feel like you can count on. Our Plantation eye doctor at 2020 Vision Place is exactly that kind of eye doctor. At 2020 Vision Place, we understand how frightening an eye emergency can be, and we are prepared to help you however you can.
Common eye problems that can be considered emergencies are pain or redness in the eye, a scratch in the eye, a cut in the eye, the eye being penetrated by something, sudden vision loss, and swelling of the eyelid. Many eye conditions often heal on their own and are just temporary discomforts, but that does not mean that you should not seek the help of an eye professional such as our Plantation eye doctor if you feel that your symptoms may indicate an eye emergency. If you wear contact lenses, specific symptoms or behaviors may lead to what could be considered an eye emergency. If you accidentally sleep while wearing lenses that are not designated for overnight wear, your eyes can become extremely irritated or dried out, and that could lead to pain in your eyes to the point where you feel like you need to see a doctor. Similarly, if you do not wash your hands before handling your contacts and touching your eyes, you may cause an infection in your eye and need to see a doctor. Another common issue with contacts is there being a rip or tear in the contact unbeknownst to the contact lens wearer, and that can lead to severe pain and an irritation of the cornea. Whatever the cause of your eye emergency, we will do our best to help you here at 2020 Vision Place.
