Wear Appropriate Eye Protection

Whether you’re playing sports or working on a hazardous job site, your eyes may risk injury. However, 90% of eye emergencies can be prevented simply by wearing approved eye protection.

We can help you find eye protection that’s right for any task. We can also help determine your risk factors and make professional recommendations based on your needs.

Common Eye Emergencies


Trauma refers to any impact that occurs in or around the eye. Symptoms can include:

  • Black eye (bruising)
  • Swelling
  • Bleeding
  • Pain

In these situations, place a cold compress over the affected area and reach out for medical assistance.

Chemical exposure is a serious eye emergency and should be treated as soon as possible. Your eyes can become exposed to chemicals like:

  • Bleach
  • Alkaline
  • Soaps
  • Ammonia
  • Pesticides
  • Fertilizer

In these situations, flush your eyes out with cool, clean water for 15 minutes and call for medical assistance.

Tears, rips, and punctures are some of the most serious eye emergencies and can result in permanent blindness. If any of these situations happen, cover the area and do not apply pressure.

For these emergencies, we recommend visiting your nearest emergency room.

Eye diseases are relatively common in the US, and they could lead to sudden eye issues causing eye pain, redness, nausea, or even sudden vision loss.

If you are at risk of developing eye disease and experience these symptoms, please contact our team immediately.
