Should I See my Primary Care vs. Eye Doctor?

Have a red or sore eye? Suffering from eye allergies? Have an eye injury? Got something in your eye? Noticing new flashes or floaters?  Many people don’t know whether to go to the emergency room, to their primary care doctor, or to their eye doctor.  In almost all cases, the answer to this dilemma is that if the issue is eye-related, you should contact your eye doctor first.  Eye care professionals are often better equipped than other doctors to handle eye injuries and other eye issues.  The doctors of Mountain View Vision specialize in all aspects of eye care, and we offer same-day appointments for acute eye problems.
