Acute eye conditions are those which need to be attended to by a medical professional within 24 hours. These include but are not limited to:
Corneal Ulcers are are caused by infections, trauma, chemical injury or contact lenses. Corneal ulcers are extremely painful due to nerve exposure, and can cause tearing, squinting, and vision loss of the eye. If you have severe eye pain, it is vital that you see a professional immediately. Your sight may depend on it.
A wide range of accidents can cause eye trauma. Many cases of eye trauma run a high risk of losing your vision. So being seen by a specialist immediately is essential.
