Compassionate Care When You Need It Most

Eye injuries are not just scary. They can put your eyesight at risk.

It can be difficult to know what to do when you or a loved one have sustained an eye injury. Your first instinct might be to go to the emergency room. And if your injury is life-threatening or unavailable, you absolutely should

However, in most eye emergency cases, you can come to us. We have the technology and capability to diagnose and treat many eye injuries or emergencies.  

Common Eye Emergencies

An eye emergency can mean many different things. It can be an eye infection, like pink eye, or an injury, like a piece of metal in your eye. Maybe it’s a blow to the face while playing sports, or sudden, unexpected vision changes, like blurred vision or flashes of light.  

These are some of the most common eye emergencies we see at Shelburne Optometry.

When Should I Get an Exam?

Shelburne Optometry recommends you attend an eye exam at least once a year to monitor your health thoroughly.

After 65, you should attend an eye examination at least once a year. Proper assessment of your ocular health can help it last a lifetime.
