Emergency eye care can be the difference between getting treatment that results in healthy eyes, and suffering permanent damage. At the office of Jerry Wake, we handle all manners of urgent eye problems, in a timely manner.
Accidents and injuries account for many of the visits to our Gardena CA emergency eye doctor. However, there are other reasons, including symptoms that could indicate an infection, or a foreign object stuck in your eye. We’re here to offer treatment, but you should also reach out to us by phone before you come in so that you can take measures to improve the odds of a favorable outcome. For anything that is life-threatening, you will be advised to call 911 or seek out the nearest ER. If your judgment tells you to go directly to the hospital, then follow it. For most situations, though, our Gardena CA emergency eye doctor will be your best option. You will have a thorough eye examination done so that a diagnosis can be made. The best way to address it will then be identified and implemented. Some of the symptoms that would motivate you to seek out our emergency eye care are eye discharge, loss of vision, a chemical contamination of some type, floaters (spots in front of your eyes), eye pain, or redness. We cannot overemphasize the fact that prompt attention is so closely linked to successful treatment. You may think you can just wait it out, but it is unwise to do so. Why should you risk irreversible eye damage or reduced vision?
We strongly urge you to keep the number of our Gardena CA emergency eye doctor programmed in your phones, home, work, and mobile. Do not hesitate to use it when you are experiencing an urgent eye concern. We’re here to help.
