Emergency Services

React Fast in an Eye Emergency: Call Dr. Jennifer L. Shane & Associates

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.

Call us at once and let our administrative staff know you need immediate attention.

Common Eye Emergencies

  • Head trauma
  • Corneal abrasions or scratches
  • A foreign object in the eye
  • Chemical in the eye
  • Sudden changes in vision
  • Partial or complete vision loss
  • Thick yellow, green, or white discharge in your eye or eyes
  • Sudden increase or changes in floaters
  • Flashes in your vision
  • Blood in front of the iris (please find the nearest emergency facility)

Emergency Action You Can Take Yourself

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.

Chemical Contact

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.
