Eye Safety – Safety Eyewear – 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.

DO call our eye care center in Langley at 604-530-8802 for further instructions! We are here for you!

To our valued patients,

Our clinic is now closed as a precaution to help protect our patients, team members and the community against the spread of COVID-19.

As Optometrists, we work in very close contact with our patients, and we see many patients each day. In these types of settings, the potential risk of transmission is elevated, and we need to do our part limiting the spread of the virus and protecting vulnerable populations in our community.

We appreciate your cooperation and understanding during this difficult time and hope to have your continued support and loyalty as we navigate the upcoming weeks.

We will be checking emails & messages periodically.

If you are having an eye emergency, please contact another optometry clinic or your family Doctor.

We look forward to seeing our patients in the office soon.

Stay healthy!

Regards,

The Doctors & Staff at Brookswood Optometry
