One common eye emergency is when a patient suddenly develops red eye. Sometimes you or your child may wake up with it in the morning. Your eye may be red, irritated, crusted, or even oozing a liquid substance. At our practice, our Las Vegas eye doctor will be able to thoroughly diagnose your red eye situation and provide you with appropriate treatment. At our practice we have state-of-the-art technology and our optometrist is able to use this technology for immediate and accurate diagnosis. Red eye can possibly just be caused by simple seasonal allergies. However, red eye can also be caused by a sudden change in a serious eye disease, such as glaucoma. For this reason, it is important that you come in to our practice immediately so that your individual situation can be thoroughly assessed by our Las Vegas eye doctor. Red eye can also be caused by infections, viruses, trauma, and dryness of the eye.
If you need foreign body removal from your eye, this too can be achieved at our vision practice. Our Las Vegas eye doctor has performed this service for many of our patients over the years. Our office is equipped to handle this type of emergency eye situation. If you need a comprehensive eye exam, a contact lens exam and fitting, management of an ongoing eye problem such as glaucoma or macular degeneration; diagnosis and treatment of dry eye, or emergency eye care, simply contact our office for treatment and care.
