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

I’m 23 and have been coming here since my preteen years. I’ve never once had a bad experience. I... ’ve seen a few different drs and every one has been patient and kind. Receptionists are always nice and helpful! I even lived in Lawrence for a few years and would drive back every year for my annual eye exam. Would absolutely recommend!!

I was very impressed. I was wearing one contact with mediocre vision. Dr. Bozsa showed me that I co... uld wear two contacts and improve my close up and far away vision. Now, my night vision is so much better and far away vision is very crisp and clear. So grateful that she took the time to help me find a better solution to seeing better!

This is the best vision center I've been to. I love the front office staff; they are pleasant and he... lpful and always want to be sure our needs are met. They were a huge help when I was looking for frames that fit my budget and were still cute. And Dr. Marr has been fantastic. After years of not being able to wear contacts (after going from single vision to multi-focal) I can. I never feel rushed during my appointments with him and I feel like he really wants to figure out the best solution to whatever my eye issues are. Highly recommend this office!

I've been a patient here for 3 or 4 years. Excellent front office staff and technicians! Doctors are... very efficient and courteous. The communication leading up to my appointment ensured I would not forget or miss it and the preparation after my appointment to discuss my contact order was excellent. Great place, all around!
