Give Your Eyes the Care They Deserve

What To Do If You Have an Eye Emergency

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

Friendly staff!

Best service I’ve ever received when picking out new glasses! Danette was just fantastic. I apprec... iate her love for helping others picking out frames that fit their face shape. I showed her what I was looking at online and was 10000% sure I was going to purchase it online. Within minutes she found me a pair almost exactly like it within the store and showed me how the one online would be too small for my face. I ended up purchasing everything from her and walked away happier than I expected. I’m always so appreciative when I meet someone who truly cares about their job. Thank you so much, Danette! I’m always coming back to you for my new glasses!!
