Did You Scratch Your Eye?
Is A Scratched Eye Dangerous? Do You Need To Go To An Optometrist With A Scratched Eye?
If you think that you have scratched your eye for any reason, there are a few things that you should know. First of all, you should never rub your eye. Rubbing your eye in a case like this can do more harm and possibly cause permanent damage.
Our optometrist has extensive training and experience with scratches to the eye and will perform a comprehensive emergency eye exam to assess the damage and prevent further complications while reducing the time needed for healing the scratch. Dr. Bajwa is residency trained and the president of the California Optometric Association and patients visit us from the surrounding cities of Camarillo, Oxnard, and Ojai, for all types of eye emergencies and medical eye care.
If a child is the one that scratched their eye, take steps to ensure that they do not rub it. If it’s an infant that scratches their eye, we recommend swaddling them until they can be seen by an optometrist. Here are a few do’s and don’ts regarding a scratch on the eye.
