What is an eye emergency?

An eye emergency is any problem related to your eye or vision that requires immediate attention. The doctor will assess your concern and determine if you need to be seen right away or within 24 hours. 

Examples of eye emergencies:

  • Abrupt loss of vision
  • New onset of light flashes or floaters in your vision
  • Noticing a veil or curtain in your vision
  • Eye pain associated with trauma, light sensitivity, or redness
  • Foreign body “stuck” in the eye

COVID-19 Office Update

We recognize these unprecedented and extraordinary circumstances that all health care professionals face and are deeply concerned for the health and well-being of the public and our staff. Therefore, in order to do our part in mitigating the spread of COVID-19, we have made the decision to postpone all routine eye exams in our office. This comes from the recent recommendation from the CDC. We do not take this decision lightly, but we know it is in the best interest of public health.

We will continue to keep the same office hours to provide urgent and essential eye care to our patients.  Each of our 3 doctors will be working with limited and unique staff and will be rotating care each day. This will allow us to minimize the number of people in our office at any given time and limit exposure. We continue to follow the CDC guidelines for cleaning and disinfection throughout our office as well as taking steps to maximize social distancing during each encounter. This includes curbside pick-up of glasses, contact lenses, and other product orders.

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and we will send a notification when we are resuming our full schedule again. Please do not hesitate to contact our office if you have any questions.

Sincerely, Vision Care Associates Team
