This week we’re seeing a lot of patients complaining of red eyes. There are a lot of potential causes of red eyes, including infection, allergies, sties, corneal abrasions and sometimes foreign bodies. This may be associated with mild pain, or sometimes sinus infections or migraines. Symptoms to look out for would be severe pain, copious amounts of drainage and, most importantly, vision loss. So if you’re experiencing any one of these symptoms, please visit us at one of our seven Shawnee Mission Primary Care locations or make a reservation at Centra Care Shawnee Mission Urgent Care by visiting CentraCareKC.com.
Centra Care Shawnee Mission Urgent Care is located at 91st and Quivira in Lenexa and 135th and Grandview in Overland Park. Make a no-wait reservation online at CentraCareKC.com.
