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 office in South Charleston at 304-766-2220 for further instructions! We are here for you!

At Advanced Eyecare, the health and safety of our patients and team members continue to be our top priority as we respond to the evolving COVID-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak.

The CDC has advised voluntary reduction of patient load to essential services only. We are diligently sanitizing our premises and taking precautions to do our part in mitigating the spread of the virus. We have revised our testing protocol to reduce contact as much as possible.

We ask that if you are not in need of essential medical services, you delay your visit until after March 30, 2020. We will be closing our office to routine care on March 20, 2020 and will be seeing urgent issues only. We are currently available during business hours by phone and email to schedule you if you have an urgent issue. You can also request an appointment at www.advanced-eyecare.com.

If you have visited Coronavirus hot spot areas or have traveled in the last two weeks, have symptoms of fever, sore throat, congestion, cough, shortness of breath or generalized fatigue, please contact us to reschedule right away and observe the recommended 14 day quarantine.

For those of you coming in, please text or call us when you arrive in the parking lot. We will advise you of the best time to enter the office. This will make it safer for you and for others.

We are still receiving orders into the office, so delivery times are still on schedule as of now. We are also extending contact lens prescriptions and glasses prescriptions for 30 days for patients affected by the disruption of our schedule.

Should the office need to close unexpectedly, you will receive notification as soon as possible. Follow our Facebook page for up-to-date information at https://www.facebook.com/aecwv/

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation. For more information, please visit https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-nCoV/index.html.
