Non-fatal injuries sustained by seatbelt wearers: a comparative study. (1/505)

The injuries sustained by 969 drivers and front-seat passengers in road-traffic accidents were studied. Altogether 196 (20-2%) of the drivers and passengers were wearing seat belts and 773 (79-8%) were not. The injuries among the two groups differed greatly in both severity and distribution. A total of 54 (27-6%) of the seatbelt wearers sustained one or more fractures compared with 300 (38-8%) of the non-wearers, and 18 (9-2%) of the seatbelt wearers were severely injured compared with 300 (38-8%) of the non-wearers. Soft-tissue injuries to the face were sustained by only 29 (14-8%) of the seatbelt wearers compared with 425 (55%) of the non-wearers. Since wearing seatbelts may become compulsory, the type and pattern of injuries to be expected in wearers should be appreciated.  (+info)

Effect of leukocytes on corneal cellular proliferation and wound healing. (2/505)

PURPOSE: To establish whether fucoidin, by blocking the adhesion of leukocytes on the limbal vascular endothelium, prevents extravasation of the cells from the blood stream into the limbal stroma and the wounded area after corneal injury. Successful leukocyte blocking enabled investigation of the influence of leukocytes on corneal cellular proliferation after corneal wounding. METHODS: Thirty-two New Zealand White rabbits were used. Photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) and a standardized alkali corneal wound were used as models in two sets of experiments. In half of the injured rabbits fucoidin was used to prevent leukocytes from leaving the local vessels. The efficiency of the blocking technique was evaluated by counting the number of leukocytes in the limbal and wounded corneal areas. Proliferating cell nuclear antigen (PCNA) was used as a marker for proliferative activity. RESULTS: The infiltration of leukocytes into the limbus and the cornea after PRK and alkali injuries can be blocked by fucoidin. The healing rate of corneal epithelium after alkali burn was retarded in the absence of leukocytes. PCNA expression was enhanced in the presence of leukocytes. Fucoidin per se had no influence on corneal cell proliferation and wound healing. CONCLUSIONS: Polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMNs) can be prevented from entering the cornea in vivo by fucoidin after PRK and after alkali burn. The corneal epithelial healing rate is delayed in the absence of PMNs in vivo, and PCNA expression increases in the presence of leukocytes.  (+info)

Prognosis of perforating eye injury. (3/505)

The assessment of visual function in a series of 130 consecutive patients of perforating eye injuries, revealed that visual acuity of 6/12 or better was regained in 63 per cent, between 6/60 and 6/18 in 9-2 per cent, less than 6/60 in 15-3 per cent, and enucleation was necessary in 9-2 per cent. In 3 per cent, the eyes were retained as blind, symptomfree, and cosmetically satisfactory organs. Two eyes were found to develop complete traumatic aniridia. None in the series was found to have sympathetic ophthalmitis.  (+info)

Ocular injuries from liquid golf ball cores. (4/505)

Tissue removed from nine new cases from 18 hours to 20 weeks after injury by a golf ball contained crystalline and other foreign material to which there was a mild inflammatory reaction followed by macrophagic activity and fibrosis. Optical and electron probe analysis showed that the crystalline material was crushed barytes containing small quantities of muscovite as is typical in natural deposits. The centres of several golf balls were shown to contain essentially identical material. By contrast with previous reports, no zinc sulphide was found. The form and frequent location of the deposits in the conjunctiva as compared with cornea and eyelid is related to the structure of these tissues.  (+info)

Factors associated with the poor final visual outcome after traumatic hyphema. (5/505)

In order to determine the factors related to the worse final visual outcome following nonperforating traumatic hyphema, the clinical characteristics of 18 patients with visual outcome of 0.1 or worse were compared with those of 166 patients with visual outcome of 0.15 or better. The presence of posterior segment injuries such as macula edema, retinal hemorrhage, epiretinal membrane, and choroidal rupture were significant factors of a poor final visual outcome (P < 0.01). The presence of anterior segment injuries such as corneal blood staining, traumatic mydriasis, iridodialysis, cataract, and lens subluxation had significant predictive factors on a poor final visual outcome and the concurrent posterior segment injuries were more frequent in these patients. Initial visual acuity of 0.1 or worse, glaucoma, vitreous hemorrhage, and eyelid laceration were also significant associations of a poor final visual outcome (P < 0.05). Patients with initially larger hyphema (grade I or more vs microscopic) and older age group (16 years or more vs 15 years or less) tended to have poor final visual acuities. Rebleeding was not associated with significant deterioration in visual prognosis. We conclude that the posterior segment injuries seem to be directly related to a poor visual outcome rather than the occurrence of secondary hemorrhage.  (+info)

Traumatic wound rupture after penetrating keratoplasty in Africa. (6/505)

AIM: To investigate risk factors, visual outcome, and graft survival for traumatic wound rupture after penetrating keratoplasty. METHODS: A retrospective analysis of 336 patients who underwent penetrating keratoplasty from 1988 to 1995. RESULTS: 19 patients (5.7%) suffered traumatic postoperative wound rupture requiring surgical repair. They were younger (mean age 16.6 years, 95% CI 13.2-20.6) and more frequently keratoconic (p = 0.01) than other patients (mean age 28.9 years, 95% CI 26.-31.0). Mean postoperative follow up was 37.7 (SD 22.9) months and 24.5 (18.9) months for the rupture and non-rupture patients. Mean interval between keratoplasty and rupture was 18 (21) weeks. The lens was damaged and removed in 37% of ruptured eyes. For keratoconics, the probability of graft survival at 5 years was lower (p = 0.03) in the ruptured eyes (75%) than in the non-ruptured eyes (90%). Endothelial failure was a more common (p <0.05) cause of graft opacification in ruptured grafts than in intact grafts. Of the ruptured eyes, 53% achieved a final corrected acuity of at least 6/18 and 63% achieved at least 6/60 compared with 48% and 71% of the intact eyes respectively (both p >0.1). The proportion of keratoconic eyes which achieved at least 6/60 was lower (p = 0.02) in the ruptured eyes (67%) than the non-ruptured eyes (87%). Eyes with wound ruptures of 5 clock hours or greater were less likely (p <0.05) to achieve an acuity of 6/18 and were more likely (p <0.05) to have an associated lens injury. CONCLUSIONS: Graft rupture is relatively common in African practice, particularly in young keratoconics. Visual outcome and graft survival are not significantly worse than for other grafted eyes, but are significantly worse than for other grafted keratoconic eyes.  (+info)

Treatment of severe ocular-surface disorders with corneal epithelial stem-cell transplantation. (7/505)

BACKGROUND: Conditions that destroy the limbal area of the peripheral cornea, such as the Stevens-Johnson syndrome, ocular pemphigoid, and chemical and thermal injuries, can deplete stem cells of the corneal epithelium. The result is scarring and opacification of the normally clear cornea. Standard corneal transplantation cannot treat this form of functional blindness. METHODS: We performed and evaluated 70 transplantations of corneal epithelial stem cells from cadaveric eyes into 43 eyes of 39 patients with severe ocular-surface disorders and limbal dysfunction. Medical treatment had failed in all patients. The patients had a mean preoperative visual acuity of 0.004 (only being able to count the number of fingers presented by the examiner) in the affected eyes, which satisfies the criteria for legal blindness in most countries. In 28 eyes, we also performed standard corneal transplantation. Stem-cell transplantations were performed as many as four times on 1 eye if the initial results were not satisfactory; 19 eyes had multiple transplantations. Patients were followed for at least one year after transplantation. RESULTS: A mean of 1163 days after stem-cell transplantation, 22 of the 43 eyes (51 percent) had corneal epithelialization; of the 22 eyes, 7 eyes had corneal stromal edema and 15 eyes had clear corneas. Mean visual acuity improved from 0.004 to 0.02 (vision sufficient to distinguish the largest symbol on the visual-acuity chart from a distance of 1 m) (P<0.001). The 15 eyes in which the cornea remained clear had a final mean visual acuity of 0.11 (the ability to distinguish the largest symbol from a distance of 5 m). Complications of the first transplantation included persistent defects in the corneal epithelium in 26 eyes, ocular hypertension in 16 eyes, and rejection of the corneal graft in 13 of 28 eyes. The epithelial defects eventually healed in all but two of the eyes. CONCLUSIONS: Transplantation of corneal epithelial stem cells can restore useful vision in some patients with severe ocular-surface disorders.  (+info)

Ocular explosion during cataract surgery: a clinical, histopathological, experimental, and biophysical study. (8/505)

INTRODUCTION: An increasing number of cases are being recognized in which a peribulbar anesthetic for cataract surgery has been inadvertently injected directly into the globe under high pressure until the globe ruptures or explodes. We reviewed the records of 6 such cases (one of which was reported previously by us), and one additional case has been reported in the literature. Surprisingly, 2 of these 7 cases went unrecognized at the time, and the surgeons proceeded with the cataract operation; all of the patients ultimately developed severe visual loss and/or loss of the eye. OBJECTIVES: To reproduce this eye explosion in a live anesthetized rabbit model and to perform a clinical, histopathological, experimental, biophysical, and mathematical analysis of this injury. METHODS: Eyes of live anesthetized rabbits were ruptured by means of the injection of saline directly into the globe under high pressure. The clinical and pathological findings of the ruptured human and animal eyes were documented photographically and/or histopathologically. An experimental, biophysical, and mathematical analysis of the pressures and forces required to rupture the globe via direct injection using human cadavers, human eye-bank eyes, and classic physics and ophthalmic formulas was performed. The laws of Bernoulli, LaPlace, Friedenwald, and Pascal were applied to the theoretical and experimental models of this phenomenon. RESULTS: The clinical and pathological findings of scleral rupture, retinal detachment, vitreous hemorrhage, and lens extrusion were observed. In the exploded human and rabbit eyes, the scleral ruptures appeared at the equator, the limbal area, or the posterior pole. In 2 of the 7 human eyes, the anterior segments appeared entirely normal despite the rupture, and cataract surgery was completed; surgery was canceled in the other 4 cases. In 4 of the 5 injected and ruptured rabbit eyes, the anterior segments appeared essentially normal. The experiments with human eye-bank eyes and the theoretical analyses of this entity show that the pressure required to produce such an injury is much more easily obtained with a 3- or 5-mL syringe than with a syringe 10 mL or larger. CONCLUSIONS: Explosion of an eyeball during the injection of anesthesia for ocular surgery is a devastating injury that may go unrecognized. The probability of an ocular explosion can be minimized by careful use of a syringe 10 mL or larger with a blunt needle, by discontinuing the injection if resistance is met, and by inspecting the globe prior to ocular massage or placement of a Honan balloon. When ocular explosion occurs, immediate referral to and intervention by a vitreoretinal surgeon is optimal. Practicing ophthalmologists should be aware of this blinding but preventable complication of ocular surgery.  (+info)

Injuries to the eye are often caused by areas of the face being hit hard by an object, but can also be caused by small cuts, scratches, burns and irritation from liquids. People subjected to smoke inhalation are also known to suffer eye damage too.. Small fragments expelled from car crashes are one of the biggest causes of eye injury on the roads, and these fragments can consist of glass, gravel, small pieces of plastic and even metal. Furthermore, eye injuries also occur in the workplace, and if you work with hazardous material without the right protection, you could suffer serious eye injury.. No matter where you work, you should always be trained to use the equipment around you, whether youre a construction worker or a gym instructor. If you have suffered an eye injury as a result of your employers negligence, or your eye injury was caused through lack of equipment training, then you could have a case for eye injury compensation..

More than 65,000 work-related eye injuries and illnesses, causing significant morbidity and disability, are reported in the United States annually. A well-equipped eye tray includes fluorescein dye, materials for irrigation and foreign body removal, a short-acting mydriatic agent, and topical anesthetics and antibiotics. The tray should be prepared in advance in case of an eye injury. Eye patching does not improve cornea reepithelialization or discomfort from corneal abrasions. Blunt trauma to the eye from a heavy object can cause a blow-out fracture. Sudden eye pain after working with a chisel, hammer, grinding wheel, or saw suggests a penetrating globe injury. Chemical eye burns require immediate copious irrigation. Nontraumatic causes of ocular illness are underreported; work-related allergic conjunctivitis increasingly has been recognized among food handlers and agriculture workers who are exposed to common spices, fruits, and vegetables. The patients history of eye injury guides the diagnosis.
MONDAY, Jan. 8, 2018 (HealthDay News) -- While BB and paintball guns may seem like harmless childs play, new research shows eye injuries among kids using them have shot up nearly 170 percent since 1990.. These injuries happen in an instant, and can have significant lifelong effects, said study author Dr. Gary Smith.. The rise in these air gun-related injuries occurred even though the overall eye injury rate among kids dropped slightly, his team noted.. The study investigated sports- and recreation-related eye injuries during a 23-year period, and found a slight decrease in eye injuries overall, said Smith. He directs the Center for Injury Research and Policy at Nationwide Childrens Hospital in Columbus, Ohio.. That overall drop coincided with a decrease in participation in many youth sports during this period, Smith noted.. Basketball and baseball/softball were the two sports most often linked to eye injuries, accounting for about 15 percent of eye injuries each.. But even as ...
Eye injuries arent very nice… okay, they are one of my pet-hates at work, treating eye injuries. Im sure theyre not much fun for the patient with the eye injury either. However, it is good to know that the cornea, which is basically the safety cover over the lens, is the most resilient and has the most self rejuvenating and healing properties of cells in virtually the entire body. This means that, in most cases, where a person has been splashed with acid, or experienced some eye trauma and are no longer able to see, will eventually re-gain their sight. In many cases of hydrochloric acid burns (quite common in some industries, such as pool cleaning) patients are able to treat their eye injuries and gain full sight within 24 hours..

In a recent cricket match, the South African wicketkeeper, Mark Boucher, suffered a lacerated sclera when hit by a ricocheting bail,1 and the irreparable vision loss, photophobia and risk of further damage forced him to retire immediately from international cricket.2 Commentators have referred to the incident as a freak accident3 and that Boucher was unlucky 4; however, he is at least the third international wicketkeeper in the last 25 years to have their career cut short by an eye injury. English wicketkeeper Paul Downton was hit in the eye by a bail in 1990 and the consequential decrease in depth perception forced him to retire.5 Indian wicketkeeper Saba Karim was hit in the eye by a ball in 2000, and he suffered a similar fate.6 These international cases may represent the tip of an iceberg considering that wicketkeepers play in each of the many cricket matches played throughout the world. During his international career spanning 467 matches, Mark Boucher was exposed to only 112 incidences ...
Using the right eye protection can reduce the incidence and severity of eye injuries. Agriculture, mining, manufacturing and fishing all present hazards to workers and a high proportion of eye injuries occur in these fields. Mandatory occupational health and safety requirements and the successful deployment of eye injury prevention strategies have reduced the number of occupational injuries, however. Even so, compliance continues to be an issue, with patients with eye injuries usually reporting not wearing eye protection due to problems with comfort or fogging of the eye protection as a result of poor fit (81). It was estimated that the correct use of eye protection for work-related and do-it-yourself-type home projects which involved ocular hazards in Australia would have saved AU$59 million in the period from November 1989 to April 1991.. A misconception amongst patients is that normal spectacle lenses provide eye protection - in fact, normal spectacles or sunglasses are instead known to ...
In the case of a car air bag inflating, all three types of eye injuries can occur. The force of impact can cause a blow to the eye, foreign objects may enter the eye, and chemicals in the air bag can burn the eye.. Eye injuries can be prevented by using protective eyewear. Wear safety glasses, goggles, or face shields when working with power tools or chemicals or when doing any activity that might cause an object or substance to get into your eyes. Some professions, such as health care and construction, may require workers to use protective eyewear to reduce the risk of foreign objects or substances or body fluids getting in the eyes.. After an eye injury, you need to watch for vision changes and symptoms of an infection. Most minor eye injuries can be treated at home. See Home Treatment for first aid measures.. ...
Bottle rockets can cause significant eye injuries in children, often leading to permanent loss of vision, according to a report posted online today that will appear in the May print issue of Archives of Ophthalmology, one of the JAMA/Archives journals.. Of the estimated 9,200 emergency department admissions resulting from fireworks-related injuries each year, about 1,400 cases involve the eyes, according to background information in the article. A disproportionate number of these injuries are caused by bottle rockets. Bottle rockets are about half the size of a normal firework and consist of three main parts: an explosive-filled core, a nose cone that guides the fireworks flight and a guide stick, which stabilizes the rocket. Injuries may result from direct high-velocity contact with the intact rocket, from parts of the rocket that may break off during flight or from neighboring debris propelled by the force of the rockets combustion, the authors write.. Mehnaz Kahn, M.S., and colleagues at ...

The Bureau of Labor Statistics Survey of Injuries and Illnesses captures data reported by private ind
Eye injuries affect approximately two million people annually. Various experimental studies have been performed to evaluate potentially injurious conditions from blunt objects using animal and human cadaver eyes. Experimental data from these studies have been used to develop injury risk curves to predict eye injuries based on projectile parameters such as kinetic energy and normalized energy. Recently, intraocular pressure (IOP) has been correlated to injury risk, which allows eye injuries to be predicted if projectile characteristics are unknown. Additionally, the measurement of IOP and the association of IOP to injury risk in experimental tests has opened up the field to studying eye injury mechanisms from overpressure. The current manuscript presents recent experimental tests that evaluated the response of human cadaver eyes exposed to firework overpressure. Consumer fireworks serve as a model of low level blast, and provides a foundation to studying higher blast overpressures (i.e., that ...

While some people consider lasers as objects for play, these cause serious harm especially when these are pointed at the eyes, according to researchers from the University of Bonn and the University of Oxford. The study, titled Retinal Injury Following Laser Pointer Exposure, was published in the online journal Deutsches Ärzteblatt International.. Researchers pointed out in the study that laser pointers can cause photothermic harm to the eyes, based on the wavelength of the radiation output, exposure time, localization, and spot size. While the eyelids have a blink reflex, that is, a natural reaction of eyelids to close and look away only offer some degree of protection against these types of injuries, they cautioned.. For the study, the team collated scientific literature related to injuries involving laser pointers. They also tested store-bought lasers from different internet-based shops (including one street market), measuring their optical radiation power, and comparing it with the ...
Mechanical eye trauma is the most common form of eye injury. It is divided into open globe injury, where the sclera and/or cornea (eyewall) have a full-thickness wound, and closed globe injury where the eyewall does not have a full-thickness wound (Fig. 20-1).4,5,6 Closed globe injuries are further subdivided into contusion injuries, lamellar laceration (ie, partial thickness laceration), and superficial foreign body (ie, foreign body lodged on cornea, conjunctiva, or under the conjunctiva but without full-thickness wound of the eyewall).6 Open globe injuries are further divided into ruptured globes and globe lacerations.4,5 Ruptured globes result from blunt trauma, due to an extreme elevation of intraocular pressure on the moment of impact causing a rupture of the eyewall at the weakest site of the globe (force from inside out), usually away from the site of impact and frequently with significant herniation of intraocular contents.4,5,6 Globe lacerations result from sharp trauma (usually) due ...

Abstract: : Purpose: Choroidal neovascularisation (CNV) is a rare but significant cause of visual loss complicating ocular injury. This study assesses the safety and efficacy of photodynamic therapy (PDT) with verteporfin in young patients with CNV secondary to traumatic choroidal rupture. Visual acuity (VA), activity of treated CNV, and PDT complications are investigated. Methods: This retrospective review comprises 25 eyes with traumatic choroidal rupture followed since 1984 at the retina service of a university-based hospital. All eyes diagnosed with CNV and treated with PDT are included. Medical records including VA, comprehensive eye examination, color photos and intravenous fluorescein angiography (IVFA) are studied. Visudyne dose is based on body surface area (6 mg/m2), activated with a laser light at 689 nm, at a fluence of 50 J/cm2 and an irradiance of 600 mW/cm2 over a period of 83 seconds. Re-treatments are considered every 3 months based on IVFA findings of CNV leakage. Results: Of ...

OjoGel technology may allow for faster identification of serious eye injuries, Labriola said. With a rapid point-of-care device such as this, anyone in an emergency department could perform a test and know within minutes if the patient needs urgent surgery to save their vision.. Ascorbic acid, also known as vitamin C, is found in high concentrations in the fluid inside the eye, called aqueous humor, but normally has very low concentration in tears.. Deep damage to the cornea from trauma or incisional surgery releases aqueous humor into the tear film, which increases the concentration of ascorbic acid in tears to a measurably higher level than that found in normal eyes, said Pan, who is also affiliated with the Beckman Institute for Advanced Science and Technology at Illinois. OjoGel offers a unique biosensing technique that provides an effective and simple method for testing ascorbic acid in a point-of-care delivery system, Pan added..

With March being Workplace Eye Wellness Month, its an opportune time to share some standard tips for ensuring on-the-job eye safety.. Know the dangers - Start by doing an eye hazard assessment. Is there potential for flying debris? Are your workers exposed to strong chemicals? Do they work with sharp tools?. Eliminate hazards before starting work - Make sure supervisors and workers clear an area of as many potential dangers as possible before they begin to work. Use machine guarding, work screens and other protections.. Provide proper eye protection - Take note, a BLS survey of workers who suffered eye injuries revealed that nearly three out of five were not wearing eye protection at the time of the accident. The majority of these workers reported that they believed protection was not required for the situation.. Workers should wear safety eyewear whenever there is a chance of eye injury even when they are just passing through areas that may be hazardous. There is a broad range of options when ...
A technique has been developed which produces an experimental posterior perforating eye injury, that reproducibly results in traction retinal detachment. The standard injury is an incision through the pars plana with vitreous prolapse and incarceration; the wound is then carefully closed with microsurgical techniques. It appears that blood in the vitreous is an essential factor in the development of vitreous traction and of traction retinal detachment. The model is considered useful for further histological, electron microscopic, electrophysiological, and ultrasonic studies of posterior perforating eye injuries. In a controlled experiment, it will be possible to assess whether pars plana vitrectomy can interrupt the sequence of events leading to traction retinal detachment after posterior perforating injury. ...
Heres a list of six types of toys you might want to cross off your list when buying gifts for young children. Each has a high potential risk for eye injuries - especially if used by young children without adult supervision and guidance:. 1. Guns that shoot ANY type of projectile. This includes toy guns that shoot lightweight, cushy darts. You might think these soft projectiles would pose little or no risk, but toy guns of this type can shoot up to distances of 75 feet, and the darts move at speeds fast enough to cause a serious eye injury - especially when used at close range indoors.. 2. Water balloon launchers and water guns.Water balloons can cause serious blunt trauma to the eye that can cause a retinal detachment and permanent vision loss. Even toy guns that shoot a stream of water can cause serious eye damage, especially when used at close range.. 3. Games that include toy fishing poles. The end of a toy fishing pole or objects secured to the end of the fishing line can easily end up in a ...
SUNDAY, June 30, 2019 (HealthDay News) -- As communities across America enjoy fireworks this July Fourth, folks should keep eye safety in mind.. The number of eye injuries caused by fireworks nearly doubled from 2016 to 2017, and the American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO) is urging Americans to take proper safety precautions this holiday.. Fireworks-related eye injuries rose from 700 in 2016 to 1,200 in 2017, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. Those injuries included ruptured eyeballs and damaged corneas and retinas.. An average of 280 people a day will go to the emergency room with fireworks-related injuries during the two weeks before and after July Fourth, said Dr. Dianna Seldomridge, clinical spokesperson for the AAO.. Dont be a part of these alarming statistics. Learn how to protect yourself and your children, she urged in an AAO news release.. Most injuries are caused by legal fireworks that parents buy for their children, including sparklers, firecrackers, ...
The force of a champagne cork can shatter glass-and it can also seriously injure your eye. Warm bottles of champagne and improper cork-removal techniques cause serious, potentially blinding eye injuries each year. Champagne bottles contain pressure as high as 90 pounds per square inch-more than the pressure found inside a typical car tire. This pressure can launch a champagne cork at 50 miles per hour as it leaves the bottle. Champagne cork mishaps can lead to a variety of serious eye injuries, including rupture of the eye wall, acute glaucoma, retinal detachment, ocular bleeding, dislocation of the lens, and damage to the eyes bone structure. These injuries sometimes require urgent eye surgeries, and can even lead to blindness in the affected eye. Ophthalmologist Monica L. Monica says, When a champagne cork flies, you really have no time to react and protect your delicate eyes. Uncontrolled champagne corks can lead to painful eye injuries and devastating vision loss. We dont want anyone to ...
The National Institutes of Health can provide specific guidelines outlining which sports are classified as high, moderate, and low risk for eye injuries, and exactly what forms of eye protection are considered most appropriate for each. In general, suitable eye protection almost always involves the use of polycarbonate lenses. Originally designed for the canopies covering cockpits in fighter planes, this clear, lightweight material is up to ten times more impact-resistant than other plastic or glass lenses and does not distort or obstruct vision. Protective safety goggles and helmet shields can help protect from flying debris, which can get lodged in the eye, or from blunt trauma, which can result in serious eye damage or even a detached retina.. Protective lenses can also help protect against more subtle dangers. Being out in the bright sunlight for even a short time without any eye protection may result in a condition called photokeratitis, a painful inflammation of the cornea similar to a ...
Wild birds come in to us with a wide variety of injuries and illnesses, some of which are treatable and some of which arent.. In recent weeks, we have had 2 different species of bird brought in with eye injuries. Visual impairment can be devastating for a bird, especially those that hunt for their food such as diving sea birds and birds of prey, and those affected can often be found in a weak and emaciated state due to starvation. Some eye injuries are obvious on first examination, but some are harder to see and require careful examination by a vet.. 4 weeks ago our driver was called by a member of the public to collect a sparrow hawk that had flown into a door. Sparrow hawks hunt birds to eat, and flying into obstacles such as window and doors whilst in hot pursuit of their next meal is a fairly common occurrence. Sadly, some suffer fatal head or neck injuries as a result, but in this case, the bird had no obvious injury other than discoloration of its right eye. On closer examination, this ...
Most bird eye injury occurs from the following:. 1. Interaction with another bird:. Injury due to interaction usually occurs when birds living in a multiple bird situation continually squabble, or have a fright that causes the birds to fly wildly about the cage. If two birds are observed to be continually fighting, they should not be housed together.. Multiple birds, particularly cockatiels, who are prone to frights, should only be housed in numbers in a very roomy flight cage. If they are kept in crowded conditions, injury will invariably occur.. Most eye injuries are treated with an opthalmic triple anti-biotic ointment or solution (make sure the product does not contain steroids to reduce swelling, as this can prove harmful to your bird).. If there is no apparent cut or bruising, or reason to think your bird suffered an injury-such as evidence of a fright, or observed physical aggression from another bird-your bird may have an eye disease, such as conjunctivitis or sinusitis, and this will ...

The study shows that thousands of children suffer eye injuries from toys. Too many eye injuries happen to children due to unsafe use of toys. Children always have so many kinds of toys including BB, pellet and paintball guns and darts. And there were more than 235,000 toy-related injuries treated in U.S. emergency rooms in 2008, nearly three quarters of those injured were children under age 15. So the parents should avoid purchasing toys with sharp, protruding or projectile parts, this includes innocent-appearing toys such as a popgun or a paddle ball set. Children should have appropriate supervision when playing with potentially hazardous toys or games.
The eyeball is a very sensitive part of the body, which makes it more susceptible to injury. A few of these physical injuries are so serious they can even lead to the loss of vision. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has reported that physical damage to the eye can occur from something smaller than the head of a pin. Injuries to the eye can be caused by almost anything; some common examples are: scrap, waste, debris, chemical products, persons, plants, animals, minerals, and even welding torches.. Regrettably, New York City construction sites are still responsible for more than 10,600 eye injuries each year that force construction workers to miss work. Employees in the construction industry are often dealing with nails, tiny pieces of metal, splinters, the mixing of cement, sawing, grinding, and chipping which all produce dust and grit. The dangerous tools associated with construction sites give the industry a higher rate of eye injuries compared to any other work place. ...
