When it comes to eye infections and injuries, your optometrist is more qualified than a general practitioner or emergency room doctor to diagnosis and treat your urgent eye health issue.
Our office provides emergency services for eye infections and eye injuries. If you sustain an eye injury or think you have an infection, rather than going to an emergency room where you will have a long wait a huge bill, call Gem State Family Eyecare instead. During regular office hours, please call 208-322-8439 and our staff will work with you to get you in as soon as possible.
State of the art microscopes allow us to examine the front surface of the eye and facial areas around the eye for infection or injury. After assessing the extent of the injury or infection, we will develop a treatment plan. Treatment may include medications and supportive care. Follow-up visits to monitor your recovery will be scheduled as needed. We will always make sure you understand your plan and have the resources you need for any home care routines and as well as any in-office follow-up required.
