Damage to your retina is one of the most serious types of eye emergencies and should be treated immediately.
If you’re experiencing any new flashes of light, floaters that were not there before, or a black curtain covering your visual field, you may be suffering from a retinal tear or detachment.
Call our offices immediately to have one of our doctors examine you. Waiting even an extra day can significantly lower your chances of regaining lost vision. If our offices are not open when you’re experiencing these symptoms, call our 24-hour emergency number: (630) 357-7856.
