Eye Injuries Directory
If not treated properly, injuries to the eye can threaten vision. Eye injuries can result from many different causes such as abrasions, punctures, burns, and chemical injuries. Most eye injuries, though, are preventable, especially sports eye injuries and injuries caused in the workplace. The most common eye injury occurs when something irritates the conjunctiva which is the surface of the eye. Irritants can come from just about anything such as sand, dust, or contact lenses. More severe eye injuries can be caused during sporting events from projectiles like balls in football, baseball, badminton, and tennis. Find out more about injuries of the eye, techniques to keep your eyes from injury, and first aid for various injuries.
