Emergency Eye Care

Did you wake up this morning with eye pain? Get bumped in the eye while playing outside? Concerned your child may have pink eye? Worried because your vision is suddenly changing?

 

In the event of an eye injury or emergency, please call our Chanhassen or St. Louis Park location immediately. We are always willing to help and we would be happy to see you the same day.

 

At Wink Family Eye Care, we have the latest technology and treatment options. Our eye doctors are highly trained in providing emergency eye care. We will examine your eyes thoroughly to help alleviate your painful symptoms and help prevent vision complications.

Common Eye Emergencies

Eye infections/Pink eye: Pink eye or conjunctivitis is due to inflammation of the conjunctiva or the “white of the eye.” It can often be due to a viral infection that started with cold-like symptoms. At Wink, we examine your eye thoroughly and may recommend treatment to decrease the spread of the infection. This way, the rest of your family can sleep easily.

 

Scratched CorneaThe cornea is the clear part of the eye which is lined with thousands of tiny nerve endings. This is why a scratched cornea can be extremely painful. At Wink, we can take a look and see if further treatment such as a bandage contact lens is needed. This can prevent further complications and have you feeling comfortable before you leave our office.

 

Contact lenses: Contact lenses, particularly daily disposable contact lenses, are extremely safe. However, complications such as infections or corneal ulcers can arise. These conditions can threaten your vision. If your eye becomes painful or light sensitive while wearing contacts, discontinue wearing contacts immediately. If the pain or sensitivity does not go away, please call us immediately.

 

Flashes/floaters/loss of vision: Many of us get floaters, which are tiny clumps of cells inside the vitreous. Many of us also get flashes of light in our vision. A single flash or small floater is not usually worrisome. However, many new floaters or flashes of flight could be indicative of a retinal detachment. If you have new floaters or flashes of light, please call us immediately.

 

Foreign objects in the eye: Getting an eyelash, dirt, or piece of metal in your eye can be very painful. At Wink, we can examine your eye with specialized equipment and remove the object oftentimes relieving the pain immediately and letting you go on your way. Have something in your eye? Give us a call and we can remove it today.
