What are Some Reasons to Come in For Urgent Eye Care in Charlotte?

Here in Charlotte, some of the main reasons why patients come to University Eye Associates include athletic injuries, foreign body injuries, acute eye pain/red eye. For example, athletic injuries involve contact sports like football, as well as running, bicycling, and golfing. One thing that each of these types of eye injuries has in common is that they can happen any time of hour and require emergency care. We have an eye doctor on call at University Eye Associates 24/7 to help you for your urgent eye care needs. Whether you are in Harrisburg, Rocky River, or Charlotte we are in close proximity to you and your community. 

What are Foreign Body Injuries?

Foreign body injuries are those involving foreign objects. For example, you might have a wood splinter in your eye or you have a corneal abrasion due to something rubbing directly against your cornea. These types of injuries require emergency eye care. Otherwise, you can suffer from infection or increased injury. The foreign object must be removed and the area treated as soon as possible.  

What are the Symptoms of Red Eye?

If you have red eye that is associated with acute eye pain, it’s likely an infection, such as pink eye. However, it could also be an eye disease, such as glaucoma. Therefore you want to get your eyes checked if you are dealing with this issue. Before you call University Eye Associates in Charlotte, check out the most common symptoms of red eye:

  • Pain in your eye and possible muscle tension in your face from straining from the eye pain
  • Blurring that causes a decrease in vision
  • Burning sensation
  • Swelling of the eye and eye lid
  • Itchy eyes
  • Spots and floaters in your vision

Dealing with red eye and the symptoms is our top priority when you come to see an optometry professional here at University Eye Associates. We offer several treatments for your eye problem depending on the specific issue causing your red eye. After our optometrists conduct a comprehensive eye exam we will determine the cause of your red eyes along with eye treatments.
