What Not To Do In an Eye Emergency

Many serious complications can arise from an eye injury which is why you should never attempt to treat yourself. If you are experiencing an eye injury, DO NOT:

  • Apply pressure or rub your eye

  • Use tweezers or other tools in your eyes.
  • Put medications in your eyes

Your best course of action in the case of an eye-emergency is to contact a qualified optometrist as soon as possible.
