There are many different reasons why you may need to see our emergency eye doctor in Chandler. Whenever you have any type of trauma to the eye, or have signs of an eye infection or immediate vision concern, it is important that you make an appointment to come in to see our eye doctor immediately. There are certain symptoms you may experience which let you know that it is important to come in for an immediate appointment. If you have a sudden increase in the number of floaters you see in your eyes, and see flashes of light, you may have a retinal tear. Retinal tears are extremely important to be treated because they can lead to retinal detachments. You may also have the feeling that you have something in your eye which cannot be removed. This can be a sign of a corneal abrasion. If you have a corneal abrasion it can be very uncomfortable and annoying because you will keep thinking that there is something in your eye which cannot be removed. A corneal abrasion can be caused by rubbing the eye when there is a foreign body present in your eye, such as dust or sand. This will cause the cornea to be scratched. Your eye may also become extremely sensitive to light. If this is the case, you will want to come in and see our eye doctor immediately so that your eye can be treated. Treatment is very important so that permanent vision damage does not develop. When you have a scratched eye, your eye becomes susceptible to infection from bacteria.
