What Is An Eye Emergency?

Updated: Dec 23, 2021

What Is An Eye Emergency?

Here is a list of few symptoms that warrant a call to our office: Red eye Eye pain Contact lens-related complications Sudden vision loss Foreign objects in the eye Eye trauma

Double Vision Sudden onset of flashes and floaters

In most cases, it is best to call your eye doctor if you are experiencing an eye emergency instead of going to urgent care or an emergency room. Some emergency rooms or urgent care facilities may not be equipped with appropriate diagnostic equipment to properly examine the eye which can result in misdiagnosis and delay in care. Most urgent care facilities will have you follow-up with your eye doctor anyways, so it saves you money from spending hundreds of dollars on urgent care bills.

We offer same day emergency appointments! At Bonney Lake Family Eye Care, we offer a wide variety of services including the treatment of urgent conditions. Dr. Kaur is residency and fellowship trained to diagnose and/or treat eye emergencies

We know eye emergencies are hardly convenient, which is why we are here for you 24/7. Call (253) 793-1588 if you are experiencing an emergency after hours!
