Often we get so busy at work that we forget to take all safety precautions. Eye injuries are the most common type of injury at work. Lets look at some causes for eye injuries: Chemical splashes, impact injuries from tools, foreign objects in the eye, welding burns, blood splashes and exposure to radiation. Some injuries are minor, however some can be very traumatic causing long term effects. Wearing goggles, face shields, safety glasses or a welding hat will definitely lower the possibility of an eye injury. Definitely call your optometrist for an appointment if an injury does occur!
