Trumansburg Emergency Eye Care

Getting a routine eye exam is just one of the many steps you can take to maintaining good eye health. However, there are some instances where you cannot wait until your appointment to get your eyes examined. Emergency eye problems can be frightening, so you need a compassionate doctor who treats you with patience and solves the issue immediately. At Trumansburg Optical, we deliver comprehensive emergency eye care for individuals of all ages. Don’t hesitate to reach out to our optometrist if you’re experiencing concerning eye symptoms. 

What to Expect During Your Emergency Eye Appointment

When you visit Trumansburg Optical for an emergency eye appointment, we take care of the situation calmly but quickly. We understand that vision problems can be stressful for you and your family, so we take great care to ensure that the patient is calm before proceeding. Dr. Henninger, our lead optician, will thoroughly examine your eyes using precise technology. The process may involve several tests depending on your symptoms. He’ll determine what the problem is and provide a solution that keeps your eyes—and vision—safe.   

How to Decide if Your Symptoms Warrant Emergency Eye Care

It’s normal to be concerned about your vision. Many of us take our vision for granted until we face an injury or health problem that compromises our ability to see. Although some symptoms are irritating, such as dry, itchy eyes, they do not necessarily warrant emergency eye care. The question is, then, how do you determine whether you need immediate care?

In general, you should get your eyes checked out right away whenever you develop sudden changes in your vision, especially if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms or situations:

  • Sudden blurriness or trouble focusing your vision
  • Burning or stabbing pain in the eye
  • Seeing an increase in floaters accompanied by a “curtain” of darkness at the edge of your vision
  • Seeing spots or flashes of light 
  • Swelling or redness
  • Vision loss

Unexpected changes in your vision can signify a serious issue with your eyes, such as a retinal detachment and should be taken care of as soon as possible. Some of these symptoms may also indicate an issue such as an infection, allergy or migraine. When in doubt, it’s best to visit a professional who can ascertain that your vision is safe. 

Likewise, plan on visiting an emergency eye doctor following an injury to your head or eyes. Blows to the head can impact your eyes and increase your risk for vision-related complications, so after the head injury itself is treated, make sure you speak with an emergency eye doctor.
