How Are Eye Emergencies Treated?

Taking inappropriate actions with an injured eye can lead to adverse outcomes. At Erdey Searcy Eye Group, our team is fully trained and licensed to diagnose and manage eye diseases. We can prescribe both topical and oral medications to treat a variety of conditions, including infections, inflammations, pain, dry eyes, glaucoma, and allergies. If a foreign substance like sawdust, sand, or dirt gets lodged in the eye, we use anesthetic eye drops to numb the area, easing any discomfort during the removal process. Often, a simple eye rinse is sufficient to clear foreign materials, though other situations, such as chemical exposure, may require the eye to be dilated or flushed with lukewarm water.
