Eye Emergencies

2016-03-25

Any eye that is squinting, swollen, red, cloudy, gooey, teary, and/or just “looks weird” should receive veterinary treatment immediately. Eye problems that are simple and “not a big deal” and problems that are serious and vision threatening can present themselves in a similar manner making it difficult for an owner to tell the difference. Do not put any ointment or drops in the eye while you are waiting for the vet to arrive as this can interfere with the exam or any testing, if warranted.
