Pink Eye to Foreign Objects, Gunbarrel Optometry is Here to Help!

At Gunbarrel Optometry, we are proud to offer emergency eye care services. Dr. Philip Wren offers immediate and urgent eye care for eye injuries, sudden loss and blurring of vision, and much more. If your eye is injured, don’t try to judge the severity of it yourself. You should immediately seek the opinion of an eye doctor to lessen the risk of hurting your vision.

Symptoms that require emergency service include, but are not limited to:

  • Sudden loss of vision
  • Sudden double vision
  • Sudden red/painful eye
  • Pink Eye
  • New onset flashes and/or floaters
  • Foreign body in the eye (especially metal or chemicals)

Things NOT to do while waiting for professional medical assistance:

  • DO NOT press on an injured eye or allow the victim to rub the eye(s).
  • DO NOT attempt to remove a foreign body that is resting on the cornea (the clear surface of the eye through which we see) or that appears to be embedded in any part of the eye.
  • DO NOT use dry cotton (including cotton swabs) or sharp instruments (such as tweezers) on the eye.
  • DO NOT attempt to remove an embedded object.

We understand ocular emergencies can arise at any time. For emergency assistance, come into our eye clinic, at 6545 Gunpark Dr., or call us at (303) 530-1973! We are here for you!
