How Eye Injuries Occur

Medline advises that eye injuries can occur as the result of contaminants or particles that get stuck in the eye area, causing damage to the outer surface or eyelid. Injuries can also occur as the result of accidents, in which the eye suffers trauma due to being struck by objects or flying debris. Common situations in which eye injuries often occur include:

  • Trauma resulting from car, bike, and pedestrian accidents
  • At home, in accidents due to dangerous and defective products
  • On the job, due to accidents and exposure to chemicals and contaminants
  • During sports and recreational activities

The American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) reports that sports are one of the leading causes of eye injuries, impacting tens of thousands of children and adults each year. In 90 percent of these cases, injuries could have been avoided had the proper safety gear and equipment been in place.

Holding Responsible Parties Accountable

The American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO) states it is important to see your doctor immediately if an eye injury is suspected. Waiting to get medical care could result in a permanent loss of sight. The best way to prevent eye injuries is by wearing protective eyewear and clearly labeling hazards which could result in vision damage. If you suffer an eye injury, those who may be held accountable include:

  • At-fault drivers in motor vehicle accidents
  • Manufacturers of defective products, and those who failed to issue proper warnings
  • Employers who failed to provide safety goggles
  • Coaches, recreational staff, and school administrators who failed to provide helmets and other safety equipment
