Emergency Care from Advanced Eyecare
It is important for everyone to take steps to take care of their eyes. At Advanced Eyecare, we encourage everyone to see an eye doctor at least once per year for a regular eye exam. We catch many vision problems at these annual visits; however, we know that emergencies are going to arise from time to time. That is why we make sure that everyone in the Blue Springs, Raymore, and Raytown areas have access to eye doctors who can help them if an eye emergency arises.
On-Call Services from Advanced Eyecare
At Advanced Eyecare, we have eye doctors that are on call to answer people's questions about their eyes. While we do most of our work during business hours, we know that healthcare issues are not confined to this schedule. That is why our patients can call and speak with a licensed physician or optometrist to receive advice on their eye situation. If emergency medical care is required, we can help patients find this as well. Trust us to take care of your eyes.
Common Emergencies Our Eye Doctors Treat
At Advanced Eyecare, there are several common eye emergencies that our doctors treat. This includes:
Contact Lenses are Stuck: One of the most common concerns that our patients have is that their contact lenses are stuck in their eyes. It is important for people to make sure they engage in contact lens recycling in an appropriate manner. If someone is supposed to change their contact lenses every day, this should be done. If someone is supposed to change their contact lenses every two weeks, follow this schedule.
Foreign Body Removal: Sometimes, patients call us because a foreign body is stuck in their eye. Some of the most common culprits include splinters, shrapnel, and metal objects. We know how to make sure these objects are removed safely.
Floaters: Finally, patients also come to see us with floaters in their eyes. These floaters can be a sign of a variety of ocular illnesses. That is why we handle these on a case by case basis.
