At University Vision Centre, our El Paso optometrists take your eye and vision health very seriously. If you have recently suffered an eye injury, we strongly encourage you to schedule an appointment with our professional team. Even if you don't think your eye injury is serious, we'd like to take a look and make sure that your eye or vision health isn't at risk.
There are many common eye injuries that we tend to see in our office. One of the most common is that of accidentally getting chemicals in the eye; this often occurs when using cleaning products. Another relatively common injury is that of a foreign object becoming lodged in the eye or poking the eye.
Regardless of your specific injury, it's always a good idea to see an eye doctor for an evaluation—even if you don't think the injury will cause any long-term damage. Unfortunately, chemicals in the eye or foreign objects injuring the eye can lead to serious infections, vision loss, and other damage. The good news is that if you have your injury diagnosed and treated early enough, it may be possible to protect your eyes and vision from further damage.
So, what constitutes an eye injury worth seeing an eye doctor over? Pretty much any injury that results in inflammation or irritation of the eye. The same goes for any situation where you accidentally pierce or puncture your eye with an object. It's always better to be safe than sorry when it comes to your eye health.
