We Treat Eye Emergencies in Portland

Your eyes are fragile organs with the sole responsibility of eyesight. We all have some proprietary protective measures such as eyelids, eyelashes, and tears, but eye emergencies still happen. Reacting quickly and properly to eye emergencies could save your eyes and vision.

If you have an eye emergency, seek help immediately.

We always leave room in our schedule to ensure eye emergencies get the attention they need. It’s one more way we are dedicated to your eye health. If you are in an emergency situation, call our office right away and we can help you choose the best action plan.

If you are experiencing any of the following, you require immediate medical care:

  • Blunt force trauma to the head
  • Blood in front of the iris (if this occurs, please go directly to the nearest
  • emergency
  • medical facility)
  • Cuts or scratches on the cornea
  • A foreign object stuck in the eye
  • Chemical contact with the eye
  • Sudden changes in your vision

  • Thick yellow, green, or white discharge in your eye or eyes

Common Eye Injuries

There are several eye injuries that could benefit from self-care before medical care. Should you experience either of the following situations, follow these instructions before seeking medical attention.

If the mucous membrane covering your eye come into contact with chemicals you must act immediately to reduce the damage done to your eye. First, flush your eye with cool water for 15 minutes. Your eye may feel better right away but flushing for the full 15 minutes is necessary to remove the chemical effectively. Once you have flushed your eye thoroughly, go to your nearest medical center.

If you have an object stuck in your eye such as a shard of glass or a metal shaving it’s important that you do not attempt to remove it on your own. Your eye is likely to be itchy or aggravated, but you must not rub your eye. Never use tweezers near or in your eyes.

You may be able to remove simple objects such as eyelashes or bits of makeup. Try flushing your eye with water to remove the object, if this is not successful trust the help of a medical professional.
