Give Your Eyes the Care They Deserve

What To Do If You Have an Eye Emergency

First things first. Don’t panic! Staying calm is the best way to help you think straight and help those around you to remain calm. Often, it’s not necessary to go to an emergency room for eye emergencies. In fact, the vast majority of people who go to the emergency room for eye care could have received treatment from their local optometrist instead.

If you’re unsure whether you’re experiencing an eye emergency, give us a call immediately! Delay may increase the risk of serious complications and may result in vision loss.

Until you see your eye doctor or seek urgent care, avoid the following:

  • Don’t try to remove an embedded object out of your eye
  • If your eye is injured, don't press on it or rub it
  • Dry cotton and sharp instruments such as tweezers should never be used on the eye.

Whether you've had a workplace accident or an at-home incident, our eye doctors are here to help

Patient Reviews

Easy to find location with very friendly staff. The doctor took the time and caught a previous presc... ription error in my glasses and contacts. I highly recommend this location.

Dr. Molly O'Neill at the Centerville location is fantastic and her recommendations dramatically impr... oved the vision of my son and I. For years our son endured frustrating vision issues under our previous doctor. Once we switched practices and Dr. Molly examined him; she diagnosed the problem and suggested prism lenses and now his vison is dramatically improved. She also changed my prescription and I see better and no longer squint at the computer and when driving. Dr. Molly is easy to work with and we highly recommend her for your family vison needs!

I called about 10 different places but Noone would accept my insurance, finally I was referred to c... omprehensive, First time I had ever took the time to get my eyes checked. They were quick to get me an appointment, I was alittle early but they had me in and done completely just 15 mins after my appointment time. My glasses arrived less than a week later. They fit perfectly and I can see so much better. A++ I would definitely refer Comprehensive Eye Care to others!!

My daughter went in for an eye exam and came out with a pair of glasses on order. The selection of f... rames for children is limited, but they came in less than a week later. I picked them up for her, not realizing that glasses need to be adjusted. My husband took her back that afternoon and they have been great.

What is considered an eye emergency?

Eye emergencies are anything that may cause permanent damage to your eyes or vision without timely intervention from an eye care professional.

The most common types of eye emergencies include:

  • A blow, poke or other trauma to the eye
  • Sudden loss of vision in one or both eyes
  • Chemical spills in the eye
  • Foreign object embedded in the eye
  • Sudden appearance of light flashes or floaters
  • Contact lens lost in the eye
Does an eye infection require urgent care?

Symptoms of an eye infection typically include itching, burning, redness, crusty and watery eyes. See a Beavercreek eye doctor if your symptoms last over 4 days or if you experience intense pain, redness, blurred vision or light sensitivity.

What should I do if a foreign object enters my eye?

Most of the time, a person can easily remove debris from the eye by repeatedly blinking to get the debris out. If that doesn't work, you can wash your eye with saline (sterile salt water) to flush out any dust and dirt from your eye, or use streaming tap water.

However, to scratch your cornea while attempting to get an object out which can cause further site-threatening complications.
