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

  • Chemical spills in the eye
  • Foreign object embedded in the eye
  • Sudden appearance of light flashes or floaters

At my first visit I experienced miscommunication. My second visit, I voiced my concerns to the offic... e manager and he handled my situation with grace. The manager was able to put a smile on my face while also assuring me he would speak with who caused my concerns. He respects not just everyone who comes in, but his employees as well. This speaks volumes of this business as a whole. Dr. Sugar is the absolute best medical professional I have encountered. Beside manner 11/10, listens to EVERY concern, and has the best attitude. Other medical offices should use this one as a blueprint to their own.
