If you ever experience unusual symptoms such as eye pain, redness, discharge, flashes and floaters, sudden loss of vision, foreign body sensation, or any other injuries please call our office at 512-255-7070 right away. We will see you the same day.
Seek Medical Care
In most cases, if you have continued symptoms of eye pain, visual changes, or bleeding you should see an eye doctor immediately. Below are just a few examples.
Chemical exposures: If you are not sure if the exposure is potentially serious, and you have washed out your eye and are experiencing only a few symptoms, you should still be evaluated by an eye doctor immediately.
