Common Causes of Eye Injuries
The eyes are a particularly sensitive part of the body. Even in sedentary jobs, it can be easily to damage your vision. Extended use of computers, for example, can expose the eyes to a light 5 times brighter than they need to function properly. For jobs that expose the eye to more dangerous substances, the damage can be even more severe. In construction work, employees should be wearing protective gear to protect their eyes from projected metal flakes, shards of glass, splintered wood, and other particulates that can enter an eye and cause irritation or even infection. Likewise, tools can cause blunt force trauma to the eyes in an accident if any of them make contact with the eye through the lid. Last, some people experience severe eye damage if they are splashed with caustic chemicals, which can happen in industrial workplaces.
