Eye Injuries

Eye injuries can range from relatively minor, for instance getting dish washing liquid in your eye, to penetrating injuries with a sharp object like scissors leading to blindness. Optometrists deal with superficial eye injuries. These are eye injuries that take 24-72 hours to heal. Eye injuries can be treated with eye drops to prevent infection and oral analgesia (painkillers) to treat pain. Optometrists will refer people with more serious eye injuries to ophthalmologists.

At Barrington Eye Care, we are ACC providers which means that any examinations relating to eye injuries can be claimed under ACC with no surcharge payable by the patient at this time.
