When to seek immediate medical advice

You should go immediately to your nearest accident and emergency (A&E) department if you have:

persistent or severe eye pain

foreign bodies that can’t be washed out

decreased or double vision

flashing lights, spots, halos or shadows in your field of vision

blood visible in your eye

an irregularly shaped pupil (the black dot at the centre of the eye)

pain when exposed to bright light

deep cuts around your eye

your eye is sticking out of your eye socket

 
 

You should also go to A&E if your injury was caused by an object flying at speed – for example, a projectile flung from an angle grinder; a very sharp object, such as glass or a knife; or chemical exposure. Flush your eye for at least 10 to 15 minutes before going.
