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

I cannot say enough good things about this place. When you go in, they make you feel like they have ... known you forever...from the front desk staff to the doctors, techs, etc. Everyone was friendly, helpful and so pleasant. Barbara really stuck out to me and I love chatting with her when I go in for our contacts and glasses. I am looking forward to seeing her again when I pick up my daughter's contacts. Thank you all for being so great to us!

So I was a little nervous the first time I went in for my eye exam. I knew my eyesight had been gett... ing progressively worse since I turned 40. I was actually dreading even going to the appointment. From the moment I walked in the office that day, the staff welcomed me and made me feel immediately at home. They even had coffee in the waiting room. The doctor who did my eye exam was very kind and EXTREMELY good at her job but for me the real fun begins when I came out of the eye exam into the room where the frames are and I met the most helpful of them all and my personal favorite employee there..... Miss Barbara. I would just like to say that every single time I've been to the Fraser eye center Barbara has gone above and beyond to not only make me feel comfortable there but she has went out of her way to help me make choices and has made my experience the best it could possibly be. I truly think this woman deserves a raise she deserves something great because she made something that could have been extremely stressful, very pleasant and actually fun. She's always so helpful and she helped me pout my first frames because I had no idea what would look good on my face and she helped me pick out ones that I love and I would go nowhere else but here and there was nobody else but Barbara because she is the Bees knees in my book, and she definitely knows what she's talking about she is a professional a.t all she does . Thank you so much Barbara! You ROCK!!!!! Melea 😻

Extremely thorough first time eye exam for prescription glasses. . Far superior to what I had at Bay... lor College of Medicine a month earlier or any other prior optometrist office. I was double checking the prescription that was given to me from Baylor, and changes were made per this visit. Their equipment was something out if Star Trek. Far more updated from ANY previous optometrist office. Thus, as mentioned, Extremely thorough eye exam and am likewise, Extremely satisfied. DR Gaston, very knowledgeable, great patient communication as well as support staff. First time for me, and WILL BE BACK, in the future. OXOXOXOX

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 La Porte 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 La Porte as soon as possible.
