Give Your Eyes the Care They Deserve

What To Do If You Have an Eye Emergency

close-up of eye

First things first. Don’t panic! Staying calm is the best way to help you think straight and help those around you to remain calm. Often, it’s not necessary to go to an emergency room for eye emergencies. In fact, the vast majority of people who go to the emergency room for eye care could have received treatment from their local optometrist instead.

If you’re unsure whether you’re experiencing an eye emergency, give us a call immediately! Delay may increase the risk of serious complications and may result in vision loss.

Until you see your eye doctor or seek urgent care, avoid the following:

  • Don’t try to remove an embedded object out of your eye
  • If your eye is injured, don't press on it or rub it
  • Dry cotton and sharp instruments such as tweezers should never be used on the eye.

Whether you've had a workplace accident or an at-home incident, our eye doctors are here to help

Great group of people... my glasses broke and of all the optical places my wife and I traveled the F... ond du Lac area to see what could be done, Family Focus staff was interested and concerned about our/my needs. They took the time to see what could be done and gave guidance to the best process at the time. Our choices were very limited but they generally cared. After we left and were at a recommended jewelry shop to get my glasses temporarily fixed, the staff called the jeweler to advise of a cancelation and if I would like the opening and I wasn't even a registered patient....I am now. Even though there was not much that could have been done to assist at that moment the Family Focus made my wife and I feel like Family... Thank you so much for customer support and follow up, which is hard to come by today. We were blessed for stopping and our support and patronage is theirs.

We had such a great experience at Family Focus! My little guy is very unsure of people much less doc... tors and they worked so well with him. There were a couple tears at first but they went away quickly. The way Dr. Grant and the staff made him feel comfortable was awesome and they were able to get what they needed to figure out he will need corrective lenses. I would highly recommend them.

  • Chemical spills in the eye
  • Foreign object embedded in the eye
  • Sudden appearance of light flashes or floaters

Does an eye infection require urgent care?

Symptoms of an eye infection typically include itching, burning, redness, crusty and watery eyes. See a Fond du Lac eye doctor if your symptoms last over 4 days or if you experience intense pain, redness, blurred vision or light sensitivity.

What should I do if a foreign object enters my eye?
