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

Dr. Doan was knowledgeable and patient with my nervous 8 year old son, who struggled a bit with the ... eye exam. My son felt frustrated when he couldn't easily read all the letters, but Dr. Doan took the time to help him understand the issues with his vision. The staff was extremely friendly and kind! I would definitely recommend Memorial Eye Center - Spring Klein!

The staff and Dr. Nguyen are very professional and friendly. The eye center is run well - they were ... on schedule, had my insurance and health records ready. Check out was a breeze and all charges were explained. It took about 30 minutes to have the exam and order my contacts. I am very satisfied.

Wow. I've been wearing glasses for over 30 years and no one has even taken the time to explain the ... differences in lenses during my exam. Dr Nguyen went above and beyond to talk me through what he was seeing on his end and helped me find the best prescription for my needs. Staff was also great and Stacey stayed late without complaint to make sure I found the frames I wanted. Excellent experience - highly recommend.

The staff is friendly, quick, and knowledge in what they're doing. The doctor is by far (Vin) the be... st part. He is able to know what I'd like and would dislike based on his knowledge in the field. He makes me feel like in he is in my own eyes. I will always recommend this place and so far enjoyed my two eye exams so far.

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 Klein Crossing 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 Klein Crossing as soon as possible.
