Of course, we cannot list every single eventuality that could cause you to nee dour Santa Monica emergency eye care, but we can give you some common examples. Among them are eye discharge, sudden loss of vision, eye pain, redness, a lump on your eyelid, a foreign object caught in your eye, and the complications of any eye disease, including cataracts and glaucoma. In short, what constitutes an eye emergency will be up to you. We will make sure that you get in to be examined by our optometrist as quickly as possible. Our Santa Monica emergency eye care is centered on the diagnosis of the problem at hand. That will then allow for the severity of it to be assessed so that the applicable treatment can be administered right away. You should not feel shy about coming in. Waiting can put the health of your eye in jeopardy, and could even result in a loss of vision or some level of damage that cannot be reversed. Although we have the facility and the equipment to handle most urgent eye matters, if you are facing a potentially life-threatening situation, particularly one where matters other than your eye need to be tended to, your best bet may be to call 911 or, if possible, get yourself to the nearest ER.
