Eye injuries can occur at any time. Our office is equipped to handle most eye injuries. The primary instrument we use is a biomicroscope (slit lamp). The biomicroscope has a high magnification and is particularly designed to aid us in evaluating the extent of an eye injury. Whether it is an abrasion, embedded foreign particle or a burn, the biomicroscope is the primary tool to carefully examine the injury.
Not all red or irritated eyes are created equal! We also use the slit lamp to correctly diagnose and treat eye infections in adults and children of all ages.
Please call us immediately if are experiencing any pain, irritation, flashes/floaters or sudden vision loss. We are here to help!
