Eye Safety & Eye Injury Prevention

This short video stresses the importance of knowing the hazards at home and the workplace regarding your eyes. In this video, we review a few actual incidents where people lost part or all of their vision, along with one whose vision was saved by safety eyewear.

Symptoms that require emergency service include, but are not limited to:

  • Sudden loss of vision
  • Sudden double vision
  • Sudden red/painful eye
  • Pink Eye
  • New onset flashes and/or floaters
  • Foreign body in the eye (especially metal or chemicals)
  • New or worsening swelling or pain after eye surgery

Things NOT to do while waiting for professional medical assistance:

  • DO NOT press on an injured eye or allow the victim to rub the eye(s).
  • DO NOT attempt to remove a foreign body that is resting on the cornea (the clear surface of the eye through which we see) or that appears to be embedded in any part of the eye.
  • DO NOT use dry cotton (including cotton swabs) or sharp instruments (such as tweezers) on the eye.
  • DO NOT attempt to remove an embedded object.

Temporary office closure

As you are all well aware by now COVID-19 is spreading and government agencies have called for social distancing. Based on the rate of the spread and news reports from around the globe it seems an inevitability that we will be called on soon to halt operations. After much deliberation our office has chosen to temporarily halt routine patient examinations in an effort to stay ahead of the curve and be proactive with our community care. We truly care about the health of each and every one of our patients and their families, which is why we have decided to take this drastic step.

Our phone lines will remain up and running during regular business hours for appointment scheduling, emergency consultation on eye related illnesses or to purchase any contact lenses to get you through to your next examination. As a courtesy to our contact lens patients Dr. Lee will be extending contact lens prescriptions for 6 months to patients that are coming due for an examination or if you would just like to stock up on an extra supply of contact lenses. Contact lens extensions will be subject to doctor approval to ensure no safety issues arise with the lenses. We are also extending a courtesy 10% discount on any 6-month supplies ordered over the phone during our closure.

We will be offering free shipping or setting up appointments to dispense any glasses currently in process. We are working hard to find solutions to continue care for our patients during this trying time. Please contact the office if you have any questions or concerns. We are here to help. This process is currently set in place until further notice. We are eager to get back to business as usual as soon as possible and will notify everyone with pertinent changes. Please keep your families happy and healthy.

Sincerely,

Dr. Amy M. Lee and staff
