Eye Emergencies Require Eye Care Experts

Eye emergencies are time-sensitive threats to your ocular health or vision, which means you need to take care of them quickly. But you cannot do it alone.

Only an experienced eye doctor is qualified to provide emergency eye care safely and effectively. At Southwood Eyecare, we have the skills and equipment necessary to give you the help you need. Contact us today.

How to Handle Eye Emergencies

If you even suspect that you might be having an eye emergency, you need an eye doctor’s help. Any risk to your vision or ocular health is too important to ignore—and trying to solve the problem yourself can make it worse.
