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

  • Chemical spills in the eye
  • Foreign object embedded in the eye
  • Sudden appearance of light flashes or floaters

However, to scratch your cornea while attempting to get an object out which can cause further site-threatening complications.

So the best thing you can do in this kind of eye emergency is to get to your eye doctor in Dallas as soon as possible.

Easily the most thorough, detailed optometry appointment I have ever had in 15 years of wearing cont... acts and glasses. Dr. Arora was very kind and knowledgeable and explained everything to me in great detail. It is obvious he is very passionate about his job and his patients; I will never go to another optometrist as long as Dr. Arora is practicing.

I've been going to Dr. Arora for the past 15 years and I couldn't be more impressed with his excepti... onal care. Not only is he incredibly knowledgeable and hardworking, but he also has a wonderful bedside manner that makes you feel truly cared for. I was amazed by his attention to detail when he spotted a slight texture change in a picture of my retina, which he recommended we keep an eye on. After a few checkins, Dr. Arora saw that the retina had begun to tear. Thanks to his vigilance and expertise, I was able to see a retinal surgeon the same day. If it weren't for Dr. Arora's diligent care, I would have lost vision in my left eye. I highly recommend Dr. Arora to anyone in need of exceptional eye care in the greater Dallas area.

We went to Dr.Aorora as my daughter's myopia was getting worse very fast. Dr.Arora discussed various... myopia management options and fitted her with specialty contact lenses that are meant to slow down myopia progression. To our amazement, my daughter's prescription hasn't changed in 2 years. I highly recommend this place if you are looking for myopia management.
