Symptoms That Might Mean an Eye Emergency

While most eye emergencies involve noticeable symptoms or trauma, other eye emergencies are not as obvious. Any sudden changes to your vision should be considered an eye care emergency. 

Sudden onset of any of the following symptoms might mean you have an emergency:

  • Burning or stinging
  • Pupils that differ in size
  • Bulging eyes
  • Severe eye pain
  • Double vision
  • Redness or severe itching
  • Bruising or bleeding
  • Sudden headache
  • Discharge from the eye
  • Eyes not moving together

Call our office immediately if you experience any of these issues.
