Emergency eye care usually consists of treatment of chemical injuries to the eye, abrasions of the cornea, and foreign bodies to the eye. Serious ocular emergencies include foreign bodies that enter the internal portion of the eye, rupture of the eye, acute elevation of eye pressure, retinal tears, and retinal detachments. An emergency eye care expert witness may be able to analyze treatment of emergency eye injuries.
