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

Had an awesome experience here. I just moved here from Las Vegas and needed a new eye doctor. The es... tablishment was very clean, nice music playing and the staff was amazing and very accurate and knowledgeable. And everything was done in a timely matter. There was no hours to two hour week like it was in Vegas and I really appreciate that were hilarious. I will be back.

First time going there and I was pleasantly surprised by the service. The doctor discovered that my ... glasses I have had for years were WAY off my actual prescription, like light-years off. She took the time to show me the difference and I have NO idea how I was functioning. The lovely lady that helped me find my frame's was very knowledgeable and helpful. Not to mention she has a great sense of humor. This is now the only place I will go for all my exams. Thank you all so much.

We just recently moved here and my son decided that he wanted to try contact lenses. Dr. Winfrey and... her entire staff made it such a wonderful first time experience for us. They were all so kind and patient with teaching my son how to care for, insert, and remove his contact lenses. They were professional, yet made sure to have us laughing as well, which made the experience that much more enjoyable. I would definitely recommend EyeTX - DeZavala for all of your eye care needs!
