Eye Safety

Avoiding Eye Injuries

 Did you know that the simplest way to protect your eyes against injury – wearing protective eyewear – prevents 90 percent of eye injuries? Yet, if you’re like most people, you’re not consistently taking this easy and necessary step to avoid injuries. Whether it’s home repairs, maintenance or sports, do yourself and your eyes a favor. Wear proper protective eyewear.

Diagnosis and Treatment 

If you’ve suffered an eye injury, even if it seems minor, it’s important to act immediately. Delaying having an eye injury examined can result in permanent damage to the affected eye. See one of our ophthalmologists or a medical professional if you have an eye injury.

  • Of eye injuries...

    occur in your own home.

  • Did you know?

    A foreign object...

    in the eye, such as dirt or an eyelash, can scratch or become stuck on your cornea. The good news is that most corneal scratches are minor and heal on their own in two days.

    Q:    

    What should I do if I think I have an eye injury?

    A:     

    First and foremost, call your optometrist or ophthalmologist and get an appointment scheduled. Serious eye injuries are not always immediately obvious. Then make sure you DO NOT touch, rub or apply pressure to the eye, this could only make things worse.
