Eye Trauma

Conveniently located to serve Fort Myers

Eye trauma encompasses injuries affecting the delicate and vital eye, from accidents to chemical exposures. Immediate attention is crucial to prevent complications and preserve vision. Incidents leading to ocular injuries can range from everyday accidents to sports mishaps, emphasizing the need for prompt medical care. Address your eye trauma with an immediate consultation at our Fort Myers practice here at Stephen J Laquis, MD, FACS.

Eye trauma or injuries near the eye may result in damage to the eyelids, lacrimal system, orbital bones, or eye.

Facial Fractures:  Fractures of the eye socket and bones around the eye can lead to facial deformities and/or poor eye movement.  They must be evaluated and treated appropriately by a specialist to restore function and appearance.

Laceration repair:  Laceration of the eyelid must be performed meticulously in order to restore the eyelid’s protective function.  If the tear duct is injured, proper repair may be surgically necessary to preserve normal tear drainage.

Importance of Prompt Treatment

Swift evaluation and treatment are critical to preventing complications like infections and long-term damage. Urgent eye trauma care is essential, particularly in the critical moments following an injury. Individuals experiencing symptoms such as pain, redness, swelling, or vision changes should prioritize seeking emergency eye treatment from an oculoplastic surgery specialist like Dr. Stephen Laquis to ensure the best possible outcome.

Knowing first aid for eye trauma is crucial for a favorable outcome. Avoiding eye rubbing and gently covering it with a clean cloth are initial protective measures. Immediate flushing with clean water for at least 15 minutes is recommended for chemical exposure. While basic first aid is essential, it does not replace the necessity for professional evaluation and treatment.
