It is important to schedule an urgent care exam with us as soon as you notice any of these symptoms. Early treatment may prevent permanent vision loss.
Chemical Burns to the Eye
If you get a chemical in your eye that produces a burning sensation, the treatment will be the same, regardless of the chemical: immediately flush your eye with tap water for up to 20 minutes. If the eye is still irritated after 20 minutes, or if you notice any damage to the eye, call the office immediately. The eye will most likely require medical attention.
