Eye Injury at a Work Accident in St. Louis

Sustain a Serious Eye Injury on the Job?

In the United States alone, there are over 1 million eye injuries every year. A large majority of these eye injuries are the result of automobile accidents, work accidents, sporting accidents and defective products. Unfortunately, many of these catastrophic injuries will result in a permanent loss of vision and a lifetime of disabilities. If you have been injured in an accident and sustained an injury to your eye, it is important to seek medical attention immediately. An optometrist or ophthalmologist may be able to prevent permanent corneal damage and loss of vision if the injury is treated quickly.

Eye injuries can easily result in permanent eye damage if left untreated. Construction workers, in particular, are vulnerable to a variety of eye injuries. Small particles such as wood chips, dust and metal shavings can enter the eye causing severe corneal damage and even blindness.

Eye Injury Statistics

  • An astonishing 2000 American workers experience an eye injury while on the job every DAY.
  • Sporting Events and Recreational Activities accounted for over 42,000 eye injuries (in 2000)
  • Paintball is a growing recreational activity that accounts for nearly 1200 eye injuries alone, every year.
  • Almost 90% of eye injuries could be prevented by simply wearing protective eye wear when on the job or playing sports.
