Eye Safety & First Aid

  • Do You See What I See?

    Healthy Vision Month is observed each year in May. This is a great time to learn how vision problems can affect you and your loved ones, and what you can do to keep your eyes healthy.

    Workplaces have requirements to provide eye protection and eye washes, depending upon the tasks that occur in work processes, but each individual should learn to care for their own eyesight as well.

  • What happens when or if eye wash freezes?

    eye-wash-bottles-and-refillsThe SDS (formerly MSDS) says to avoid excessive heat or cold.

    If eyewash freezes and there is no evidence of leakage then the product should be OK. Freezing will not harm the eyewash.

    The only issue is sterility: Water expands when it freezes so if the seal is broken, the bottle or cap is cracked or there is any other evidence that leakage occurred then throw it out.

  • Something to remember about eye wash

    eye-wash-bottles-and-refillsWhether your eye wash bottle is propeller top (twist tab) or screw top - remember thee are always one-time use.

    Just because you can put a screw top back on doesn't mean you should. If an eye wash has been opened, it is no longer sterile. You should on'y put sterile eye wash in eyes, contaminants in opened eye wash bottles could react adversely with whatever you are trying to flush from the eye, or could cause their own damage to the eye.

     

  • Sports Eye Safety Awareness Month

    During Sports Eye Safety Awareness Month, the American Academy of Ophthalmology reminds us that Tens of thousands of sports and recreation-related eye injuries occur each year. The good news is that 90 percent of serious eye injuries are preventable through use of appropriate protective eyewear.

    The risk of eye injury can vary depending on the activity. Make sure the level of eye protection you or others in your family use is appropriate for the type of activity. Regular eyeglasses do not offer proper eye protection.

    High-Risk Sports

    For all age groups, sports-related eye injuries occur most frequently in baseball, basketball and racquet sports.

    Boxing and full-contact martial arts pose an extremely high risk of serious and even blinding eye injuries. There is no satisfactory eye protection for boxing, although thumbless gloves may reduce the number of boxing eye injuries.

    In baseball, ice hockey and men’s lacrosse, a helmet with a polycarbonate (an especially strong, shatterproof, lightweight plastic) face mask or wire shield should be worn at all times. It is important that hockey face masks be approved by the Hockey Equipment Certification Council or the Canadian Standards Association (CSA).Child playing baseball

    Protective eyewear with polycarbonate lenses should be worn for sports such as basketball, racquet sports, soccer and field hockey. Choose eye protectors that have been tested to meet the American Society of Testing and Materials (ASTM) standards or that pass the CSA racquet sports standard. See the EyeSmart Protective Eyewear page for additional details.

    If you already have reduced vision in one eye, consider the risks of injuring the stronger eye before participating in contact or racquet sports, which pose a higher risk of eye injury. Check with your ophthalmologist (Eye M.D.) to see if appropriate eye protection is available and whether or not participating in contact or racquet sports is advised.

    Sports Eye Safety

    For all age groups, sports-related eye injuries occur most frequently in water sports, basketball, and baseball/softball.

    More than 25,000 people seek treatment for sports-related eye injuries each year. The good news is that almost all of these injuries can be prevented. Whatever your game, whatever your age, you need to protect your eyes! Learn more Continue reading
