“The cornea is one of the most sensitive tissues in the body because it has many nerve endings. A tiny microscopic cut or foreign body on the cornea will cause a great deal of pain. Come see us and get relief for your eyes.” – Dr. Song Choi
Vision Source of Farr West has the ability to diagnose and treat eye emergencies such as:
- foreign body
- chemical burns
- infections including pink eye
- eye allergies
- dry eye
- eyelash extension related issues
Nearly all emergency cases are treatable in our office. In rare cases surgery may be required and we will facilitate an urgent referral to ophthalmology.
Patients often self-refer to emergency departments for problems that can be treated and/or managed in our office at lower costs and with better outcomes. Insurance Co-Pays in our office are significantly lower than in emergency room and urgent care settings. In 2018 Vision Source of Farr West was able to save patients and insurance companies $73,100.00 by treating eye emergencies in our office.
