According to the US department of Health & Human Services, “Eye injuries of all types occur at a rate of more than 2,000 per day. In particular, an estimated 1,000 eye injuries occur in American workplaces alone. The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) found that almost 70% of the eye injuries studied occur from falling or flying objects, or sparks striking the eye. It is estimated that over 90% of eye injuries are preventable with the use of proper safety eye wear. Eye Injury can change your life with impaired sight or even blindness. We urge you to wear proper fitting, suitable, safety goggles to protect yourself. If you do sustain an eye injury, an emergent visit to the ophthalmologist is necessary. The longer the injury is untreated, the greater the chance of irreversible damage to the eye. Contact us if you happen to suffer an eye injury at your workplace.
