Many people think that eye emergencies require an immediate trip to the emergency room. The expense and hassle of such a trip to the hospital is rarely needed. Our doctors have managed hundreds of eye injuries ranging from:
- Corneal Abrasions
- Minor Lid Lacerations
- Blunt Trauma
- Chemical Burns
- and Many Other Ocular Emergencies
In some situations an eye injury may require the care of a specialist. Retinal detachments and deep penetrating wounds often require immediate transportation to a specialty medical center. Our doctors are very experienced in evaluating such situations, making sure that patients are properly referred.
PLEASE NOTE: Your regular medical insurance, not your eyeglass plan, will usually cover these visits in our office.
