First things first. Don’t panic! Staying calm is the best way to help you think straight and help those around you to remain calm. Often, it’s not necessary to go to an emergency room for eye emergencies. In fact, the vast majority of people who go to the emergency room for eye care could have received treatment from their local optometrist instead.

If you’re unsure whether you’re experiencing an eye emergency, give us a call immediately! Delay may increase the risk of serious complications and may result in vision loss.

Until you see your eye doctor or seek urgent care, avoid the following:

  • Don’t try to remove an embedded object out of your eye
  • If your eye is injured, don't press on it or rub it
  • Dry cotton and sharp instruments such as tweezers should never be used on the eye.

Whether you've had a workplace accident or an at-home incident, our eye doctors are here to help

I have been going to Ogletree Eye Care for the past 6 years and it consistently delivers amazing cus... tomer service and excellent quality of care from Dr. Kelly Visentine. The office staff is always very thoughtful, friendly, and accommodating with office visits. Abundant selection of glasses to choose from. They also have a nice selection of high-end frames. They take a lot of different insurances and have discounts on frames if you don't. They do eye wellness checks and have options to "not' have your eyes dilated, which to me is the best service they have. It is located in the Target area but secretly located in the back near the McDonalds. With so many different places to choose from in Flower Mound, this place is a hidden gem and will continue to come back every year for my exams. Thank you to the staff and Dr. Visentine for always taking good care of me.
