Give Your Eyes the Care They Deserve

What To Do If You Have an Eye Emergency

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

Whether we're spotting and removing animal waste, poison ivy, paper/plastic litter or organizing the... hundreds of stops our park rangers make each week at homes, businesses and parks across the city, crystal clear vision is a requisite for success at Sgt. Poopers. That's exactly what we get from Dr. Clint Meyer and his fantastic upbeat team at Dallas Eyeworks. As far as we are concerned, they provide the best eye care in Dallas.

I always get my eye exam and glasses here. Service is top notch and the doctors are very knowledgeab... le and share the knowledge with you.

I have been seeing Dr. Meyer for at least 12 years now. I have strayed a couple of times getting ey... e exams at other docs but ultimately have to bring that prescription to him to "correct" because they were very off. He knows eyes well including eye care. I would highly recommend him and have tried most of the other docs in the area over the years when my schedule wouldn't allow for waiting, and ultimately regretted those decisions. I won't look anywhere else again, and if he's booked, I'll allow the time to wait because he's THAT good. He's an incredible doctor, but also a good person. Would highly recommend.

I showed up on the wrong date, and the staff worked me in anyway. Clearly I really needed glasses!... I had never been to an eye doctor before, and I was a little unnerved to say the least. Dr. Meyer and his team were fantastic, had a great bedside manner, and had the most modern technology to make the experience as painless as possible! Thank you!

First off let me say they were one of the most transparent medical professionals I have seen in all ... of Dallas. They checked my insurance to make sure they took it before my visit, gave me a quote of the cost of my visit, and told me exactly what was covered. Dr. Meyer was straight forward and very thorough in his explanations of my eye needs. They even explained some of my insurance benefits for eye glasses and contacts. I highly recommend them.

I have been a patient of Dr. Meyers for several years. The team at Dallas Eyeworks is very knowledge... able, professional and courteous. If you need help with choosing new frames and lens, I would recommend asking for Sam. She does a tremendous job helping patients pick the right frames and lens!
