What Are Minor Eye Injuries?
Seeking immediate care at University Urgent Care can help avert enduring complications that might arise from delaying appointments at traditional doctor’s offices or attempting self-treatment. Some reasons to consider visiting UUC for an evaluation of your eye injury include:
- Black eye: A black eye is a common minor eye injury resulting from blunt trauma, causing bruising and discoloration around the eye area.
- Minor Scratches: Even minor scratches on the eye’s surface can lead to discomfort and potential infection.
- Eye Irritation and Redness: Whether caused by allergies, irritants, or minor scratches, eye irritation and redness are best addressed with expert care to prevent further complications.
- Conjunctivitis (Pink Eye): This common condition can cause discomfort and potential spread if not treated promptly. Our medical team can determine the cause and prescribe suitable remedies.
Addressing these concerns at University Urgent Care ensures you receive timely, specialized care tailored to the nuances of eye injuries, promoting swift healing and mitigating potential long-term consequences.
Certain eye injuries that fall outside the scope of our urgent care services may necessitate referral to an emergency room. If you are experiencing difficulties in breathing, uncontrolled bleeding, or chest pain unrelated to coughing, please call 9-1-1 immediately or seek care at an Emergency facility.
