Common Eye Emergencies

Emergencies happen, but getting the right help can preserve your or your loved one’s vision.

If you experience any of the following emergencies, please get in touch with our team as soon as possible. If you have an eye disease risk and experience sudden symptoms, please call our team immediately.

For severe eye emergencies, we recommend going to an emergency room.


Trauma refers to any impact sustained on the eye or surrounding area. You may experience symptoms like:

  • Black eyes
  • Eye pain
  • Eye bleeding
  • Sudden vision loss

Chemical exposure can cause severe symptoms, including conjunctivitis or vision loss. Please remember to use appropriate eyewear whenever handling:

  • Chlorine
  • Soaps
  • Ammonia
  • Battery acid
  • Pesticides
  • Fertilizer

Small particles can land on your eye’s surface and cause irritating or painful symptoms. The eye can wash away smaller particles, like dust, dirt, and hair. However, you may need to visit us if you have a larger particle in your eye.

Several eye diseases can lead to sudden symptoms, like wet macular degeneration and angle-closure glaucoma.

Please call our team immediately if you risk developing an eye disease and experience sudden symptoms like eye pain, redness, nausea, blurry vision, and vision loss.

Learn more about eye diseases on our Eye Disease Diagnosis & Management page.

Severe injuries require an emergency room, like punctures, cuts, scrapes, or tears.
