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 optometry practice in West Lebanon, New Hampshire at 603-678-4759 for further instructions! We are here for you!

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) is recommending that routine eye care services be postponed until the COVID-19 crisis is under control. Based on this recommendation and in an abundance of caution, we at North Country Eye Care have decided to close our office to routine eye care as of 6 p.m. on Friday, March 20. We will remain available for urgent eye care services as needed. Our doctors will be on-call to provide such services. If you need our medical eye care services or have an urgent concern, please call or text our office at (603) 678-4759. As of now, we plan to have one of our team answering phone calls during the hours of 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. We can also be reached via email at info@northcountryeyecare.com. We will get back to you as quickly as possible.

We hope to be able to resume hours in late April, but this is subject to change. We will contact our patients when we are able to resume office hours. Thank you for your understanding at this challenging time.

We appreciate all of our patients and customers. We wish you all the best. Thank you for your trust in us. We hope to be back soon!
