Your vision is your most precious sense, and when it is put at risk it is imperative to act quickly.
At Elite Vision Therapy Centre we will do everything we can to accommodate emergency appointments, but if we are unavailable proceed to the nearest emergency room.
Common eye emergencies include but are not limited to:
Chemicals in the eyes can cause permanent damage. If you get a chemical spill or splash in your eyes you should immediately flush your eyes with clean, cool water.
Continue to flush your eyes for at least 20 minutes even if you no longer feel any pain or discomfort to be sure you have thoroughly removed all of the chemical from your eyes.
Once you have flushed your eyes for 20 minutes, seek medical attention.
If there is foreign body embedded in your cornea, sclera or under your eyelid, leave it alone and seek medical attention immediately.
If you have a loose foreign body in your eye, such as dirt, a bug or an eyelash, flush it out with cool, clean water. If the object doesn’t come free you can try removing it very gently with a cotton swab moistened with clean water by carefully tapping it against the object. If that fails to remove the foreign body, it is time to see your optometrist.
Never use tweezers or any other tools to poke around in your eyes. You could risk doing even more damage. Seek out the care of a professional.
Located on Scarlett Road in Etobicoke, just south of Eglinton Avenue W. and across from the Humber River, Elite Vision Therapy Centre is centrally located to achieve your primary eye care and vision therapy need.
