Eye Injury – Foreign Object Removal
If an accident happens and something becomes embedded in your or someone else’s eye, call or come in immediately! No appointment is needed for emergencies.
Remember, it is always preferable to have an eye doctor available to remove the splinter rather than taking out a pair of tweezers and a needle to remove the object yourself. Bring the patient into our office immediately, or if it is after hours, go to the local emergency room.
Do not rub the eye or try to flick an embedded object out of the eye. Be very careful to prevent any further eye damage. In the case of an eye injury, it’s important to be sure any foreign debris is removed and that the eye is protected against infection as soon as possible.
Typically, accidents involving your eyes can happen anywhere: at work, in the home, in a car accident or even at a ball game, so protect your eyes with appropriate eye wear whenever possible. You can avoid serious eye injuries from industrial accidents by using the appropriate safety equipment, such as protective eyewear, headgear, respirators and gloves.
We are experienced in handling eye injuries and minimizing eye damage.
Ours was an emergency visit on a Saturday morning. Being from out of town, we were welcomed and put at ease by everyone. The care has resulted in a great recovery/result based on our meeting with our local Doctor this morning. — Luke V.
I went in as an emergency patient and I thought I would have to wait a long time to be seen but I was seen right away. The receptionist and the doctor were great. I recommend this clinic to everyone. — Elva M.
