Accidental eye injuries: causes and prevention

July 1, 2009 by  
Filed under Featured, VISION

eye_seriesHow’s this for statistics to make you think seriously about protecting your eyes:

  • More than a million people in the US have eye injuries each year.
  • Accidental eye injury is one of the leading causes of vision loss and impairment.
  • 90% of the said injuries are actually preventable.

Although a lot of eye injuries may occur in the workplace, many people are not aware that a lot of injuries also happen at home and at leisure time.

Here are major ways of injuring your eyes:

Fireworks and firecrackers

In almost every country, fireworks are part of national celebrations. Today is Canada Day. The 4th of July is just around the corner. Fireworks are beautiful and fun but they can cause major injuries, including the eyes, to users as well as to bystanders. Keep firecrackers out of little children’s sight and reach. Not only are they fire hazards, they can also cause injuries.

Chemicals

Those who are dealing with chemicals in the workplace wear eye protection gear. I’ve worked in a lab before and knew the risks and the precautionary measures. What we tend to forget is that household chemicals can also be hazardous and can cause permanent eye damage. Medicine.Net recommends that

when using household chemicals, read instructions and labels carefully, work in a well-ventilated area and make sure to point spray nozzles away from you.

Machinery and appliances

Household appliances and machinery can also cause eye injuries. Look at your hobby room, your workshop. Do you wear protective eyewear when you use that electric saw? That potter’s wheel? The kitchen blender? Any other moving machinery?

How about the lawnmower or the power trimmer? Projectiles in the form of stones, branches and pieces of debris can shoot from these machines during use. These projectiles present risk not only for the machine operator but for the bystanders as well.

Sports and recreation

Sports and other recreational activities are fun but they can cause eye damage, too. A blow from a hockey stick, puck, or ball can have some devastating effect on the eye. In April, I posted a resource post on Sports Eye Safety.

So what do we do in case of an eye injury?

Medicine.Net recommends:

What is bad for the heart is bad for the eyes

June 17, 2008 by  
Filed under HEART AND STROKE

We all know that high blood pressure and high cholesterol levels are bad for our heart. A study by Irish and Canadian researchers shows that these health conditions can damage our eyes as well.

According to a recent report in the Archives of Ophthalmology

“The two conditions appear to increase one’s risk for retinal vein occlusion, a condition that leads to vision loss. It results from one or more veins carrying blood from the eye to the heart becoming blocked and causing bleeding or fluid build-up.”

The study found that high blood pressure increases the risk of developing retinal vein occlusion by more than 3.5 times while high cholesterol levels increases it 2.5-fold.

What is retinal vein occlusion?

Retinal vein occlusion is a blockage in the blood supply from the retina — the light-sensitive tissue in the back of the eye. Veins of the retina can become blocked by a blood clot. Retinal vein occlusion also can occur when the retinal arteries put pressure on the retinal vein.

according to the Medline Health Encyclopedia.

The pressure on the retina is linked to several disorders, including diabetes, glaucoma, hardening of the arteries (atherosclerosis), high blood pressure, and blood clot. Symptoms of retinal vein occlusion are blurring or vision loss in all or part of one eye.

The study analysed results of 21 studies previously published involving a total of 28,646 patients. The findings show that 63.6% of those with retinal vein occlusion also had concurrent conditions of hypertension. In addition, 35.1% of these patients have high cholesterol levels.

It is therefore important that

“…those who treat patients with hypertension, diabetes and high cholesterol should be as concerned with the health of the person’s eyes as they are with the health of the person’s cardiovascular system.”

Remember, when we do something that is detrimental to our health, it’s not only our heart that is at stake, it’s our eyes as well. Our sense of sight is very important and loss of vision is a major disability that can drastically affect our quality of life.

Want to know more about cholesterol and blood pressure? The American Heart Association can give you a sample of the brochure Understanding and Controlling Cholesterol for free. The Hypertension Primer is also available for free. A resource post from last month gives some tips on blood pressure awareness.
