Give Your Eyes the Care They Deserve

What To Do If You Have an Eye Emergency

First things first. Don’t panic! Staying calm is the best way to help you think straight and help those around you to remain calm. Often, it’s not necessary to go to an emergency room for eye emergencies. In fact, the vast majority of people who go to the emergency room for eye care could have received treatment from their local optometrist instead.

If you’re unsure whether you’re experiencing an eye emergency, give us a call immediately! Delay may increase the risk of serious complications and may result in vision loss.

Until you see your eye doctor or seek urgent care, avoid the following:

  • Don’t try to remove an embedded object out of your eye
  • If your eye is injured, don't press on it or rub it
  • Dry cotton and sharp instruments such as tweezers should never be used on the eye.

Whether you've had a workplace accident or an at-home incident, our eye doctors are here to help

Great service

This was our first visit to Eyetique, and we were pleasantly surprised by not only the incredible se... lection of all styles of frames (including frame styles we'd never seen elsewhere), but the exceptional service provided by Johnny. He is a true professional with a profound knowledge of eyewear, proper eye care, and matching the exact perfect frame with one's face, personality and needs. He isn't afraid to share his expertise and suggest an array of frame styles you might have otherwise overlooked. Johnny is spot on and I trust him implicitly, and the selection of frames at Eyetique is unparalleled. We wear our glasses daily, shouldn't they be high quality, and something truly special that best expresses our style and personality?

Easiest experience of my life. The Dr. was very thorough, unlike any of the competitors. I was sho... cked at how well my new glasses look on me. I just knew they were professionals the moment I stepped foot inside. I will return and highly recommend this establishment to others.

Dr Roytman, Michelle and John. Have provided the best experience! My exam was outstanding. Michelle ... helped me select the perfect frames. Their care and concern is above and beyond. And I can see perfectly again! Thank you so much 💗

I had the best experience visiting Dr. Stephanie Roytman and her team at Eyetique at Eton Square thi... s morning. Dr. Roytman is an empathetic doctor who took the time to go through all the necessary steps and assessments for my eye exam, explaining everything along the way. Dr. Roytman cares about her patients and their eye health and it is obvious that she loves her work. Sales staff Michelle and Johnny were also fantastic: they are experts at eyeglasses and how each pair suits different faces. They helped me choose a beautiful pair of glasses from a thoughtful collection of frames, some of which are hard to find here in the US. Go to Eyetique for the kind of service that is rare these days: genuine, friendly, and professional. Thank you so much for the great visit! I'll be recommending Eyetique and Dr. Roytman to everyone I know. ​​

Eye Emergencies FAQs

What is considered an eye emergency?

Eye emergencies are anything that may cause permanent damage to your eyes or vision without timely intervention from an eye care professional.

The most common types of eye emergencies include:

  • A blow, poke or other trauma to the eye
  • Sudden loss of vision in one or both eyes
  • Chemical spills in the eye
  • Foreign object embedded in the eye
  • Sudden appearance of light flashes or floaters
  • Contact lens lost in the eye
Does an eye infection require urgent care?

Symptoms of an eye infection typically include itching, burning, redness, crusty and watery eyes. See a Beachwood eye doctor if your symptoms last over 4 days or if you experience intense pain, redness, blurred vision or light sensitivity.

What should I do if a foreign object enters my eye?

Most of the time, a person can easily remove debris from the eye by repeatedly blinking to get the debris out. If that doesn't work, you can wash your eye with saline (sterile salt water) to flush out any dust and dirt from your eye, or use streaming tap water.

However, to scratch your cornea while attempting to get an object out which can cause further site-threatening complications.

So the best thing you can do in this kind of eye emergency is to get to your eye doctor in Beachwood as soon as possible.
