Give Your Eyes the Care They Deserve

What To Do If You Have an Eye Emergency

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

I was greeted with a pleasant smile from the receptionist when I entered and checked in and taken ba... ck for my check up within minutes. The technician who did the various tests on my eyes was very polite and professional and made me feel at ease. Then Dr. Tiffany Brawner examined my eyes in an attempt to find out why my vision had deteriorated within the last year. Once she identified my problem she was as happy as I was and explained in detail what she had found. She made a referral to Clemson Eye to correct the problem and within an hour I was able to get that appointment scheduled two days out. Wonderful experience at Revision Optix - Simpsonville

  • Sudden loss of vision in one or both eyes
  • Chemical spills in the eye
  • Foreign object embedded in the eye
  • Sudden appearance of light flashes or floaters
  • Contact lens lost in the eye
Does an eye infection require urgent care?

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