Give Your Eyes the Care They Deserve

What To Do If You Have an Eye Emergency

First things first. Don’t panic! Staying calm is the best way to help you think straight and help those around you to remain calm. Often, it’s not necessary to go to an emergency room for eye emergencies. In fact, the vast majority of people who go to the emergency room for eye care could have received treatment from their local optometrist instead.

If you’re unsure whether you’re experiencing an eye emergency, give us a call immediately! Delay may increase the risk of serious complications and may result in vision loss.

Until you see your eye doctor or seek urgent care, avoid the following:

  • Don’t try to remove an embedded object out of your eye
  • If your eye is injured, don't press on it or rub it
  • Dry cotton and sharp instruments such as tweezers should never be used on the eye.

Whether you've had a workplace accident or an at-home incident, our eye doctors are here to help

Service here was exceptional. Staff was very helpful, professional, thorough, and polite. Dr. Ali wa... s awesome. He really took the time to explain my eye health, and his treatment plan. Loved my experience. My insurance covered my visit, and I paid a copay of $10. This location is in Cinco Ranch and they have to cater to their communities needs. I was unable to purchase a pair of frames as they were all name brand/high end, but saw a pair I’d love to have. Hope to be back soon to purchase. A girl can dream! 🤗 Great place when you’re really needing eye care. You’ll leave feeling relieved and refreshed. 😊 Thanks!

I have been going to Dr. Mostaghimi for at least 10 years now and they are the best! He and his sta... ff are so professional and they have bent over backwards for me as I have a crazy sensitivity to some plastics in glass frames. I get nothing but the best service from them and such a great selection of frames. I saw Dr. Gross only one time and she gave me some great suggestions on OTC eye drops for my allergies that have helped me so much. Their office is very nice and in a great location. I would recommend this Today’s Vision for your personal eye care.

Awesome service
- May. 17, 2018
The staff and the doctor are very courteous, professional and efficient! It all started when I calle... d to book an urgent appointment and they were able to squeeze me in the next day, the whole insurance process took less than 5 minutes, and they also have afternoon hours so I was able to go after work. Dr. Ali is super, he put my teenager at ease and she managed to get her eyes checked & contact lens fitted within minutes - and minimal drama. This will definitely be our new ‘go to’ place for all our family eye needs.

Office is very clean and organized. The Ophthalmologist is very knowledgeable and Caring, staff are ... well trained. I definitely recommend this place.

The most common types of eye emergencies include:

  • A blow, poke or other trauma to the eye
  • Sudden loss of vision in one or both eyes
  • Chemical spills in the eye
  • Foreign object embedded in the eye
  • Sudden appearance of light flashes or floaters

Does an eye infection require urgent care?

Symptoms of an eye infection typically include itching, burning, redness, crusty and watery eyes. See a Katy eye doctor if your symptoms last over 4 days or if you experience intense pain, redness, blurred vision or light sensitivity.

What should I do if a foreign object enters my eye?

Most of the time, a person can easily remove debris from the eye by repeatedly blinking to get the debris out. If that doesn't work, you can wash your eye with saline (sterile salt water) to flush out any dust and dirt from your eye, or use streaming tap water.

However, to scratch your cornea while attempting to get an object out which can cause further site-threatening complications.
