Eye emergencies happen even when all safety measures are met. At Dr. Jennifer L. Shane & Associates, we leave space in our schedule to accommodate these emergencies. If we cannot see you immediately, please seek out the nearest medical clinic in the Reno – Sparks – Carson area.
In the case of chemical contact and a foreign object embedded in your eye, there are actions you can take yourself to reduce the damage.
If a chemical has been splashed or sprayed onto your eye you need to flush the mucous membrane covering your eye. Using cool water, rinse your eyes for 15 minutes. Your eyes may feel better immediately, but it’s important to continue rinsing for the full 15 minutes to rid your eyes of as much chemical as possible. After flushing your eyes, head to an emergency facility.
When you have something small in your eye – pet hair, makeup, or dirt – you can attempt to remove these bits by flushing them out with water. Never use tweezers in or around your eyes. In the case of glass or metal shards, rely on a doctor to remove them safely.
