There are no hard and fast rules that constitute what an eye emergency is. And while we will discuss some of the more common ones, you should always feel free to seek out the necessary care here at Eye to Eye whenever you feel that the matter is urgent. We encourage you to do so. It is always preferable to err on the side of caution.
Some of the broad reasons why you may need our emergency eye care Owings Mills are to address the results of an accident, injury of physical alteration; or due to obvious signs of allergic reaction or infection. For example, if a foreign object gets stuck in your eye, you should get treatment immediately. Symptoms that indicate urgent need include eye pain, redness, discharge, sudden vision loss, the appearance of a lump on your eyelid, floaters (spots in your field of vision), burning, or itchiness. That's not a complete list, of course. If you're concerned, then so are we. Choose our emergency eye care Owings Mills over a hospital ER or a general urgent care medical center because you are assured here of expert, experienced attention using state-of-the-art equipment. Primary care does not provide you with the knowledge and skills that you you get from our specialist. It's a good idea to call us ahead of your arrival, or to have someone else do so on your behalf. This will allow our eye doctor to be prepared for you, ensuring a prompt examination and treatment.
Your eyes and your vision are way too important to leave them to chance. We want only the best for our valued patients, whether you have been coming here for a long time or if this is your first time. Act immediately to take advantage of our emergency eye care Owings Mills.
