If you experience sudden eye pain you should be evaluated promptly. The right diagnosis and treatment can save your sight.
Pink Eye & Other Eye Infections
Redness of the eye is commonly seen in our practice, but the causes are varied. It could be allergies, bacteria, dry eyes, or a virus. Any case of eye redness that does not improve quickly should be seen right away.
Floaters & Spots
Floaters can take on many forms. Some look like opaque strands and some look like dark specks. They are tiny clumps of cells or ﬁbers inside the eye. You notice them when light casts a shadow from them on your retina. Most ﬂoaters are normal and caused by age-related changes inside the eye, but a sudden appearance of hundreds of ﬂoaters could be the sign of something more serious. A thorough eye exam is essential for anyone with the onset of new ﬂoaters.
Flashes of Light
There are several conditions that can cause someone to see ﬂashes of light. From migraines to retinal detachment, it is important to have your eyes examined if you experience a sudden episode of ﬂashing lights in your vision.
Vision correction technology is becoming safer and more affordable than ever. If you are interested in learning more about the procedure and whether you are a good candidate, book an appointment to schedule a consultation.
