Types of Eye Emergencies
Please call us if your eyes come into contact with any of these chemicals:

Symptoms can include eye pain, burning, redness, swelling, watery eyes, and more. If this occurs, flush your eyes with cool, clean water for 15 minutes, and call a medical professional.
Tears, Rips, & Punctures
If you experience a tear, rip, or puncture to the eye, do not apply pressure. Cover the area with an eye shield and call emergency services.
Foreign Object in the Eye
Small foreign objects, including dust, metal debris, and wood shavings, can cause discomfort or pain.
You may be able to remove these particles by blinking or flushing your eyes with cool, clean water. But if you can’t remove the item, you may experience more severe damage and should call a medical professional as soon as possible.
