Protect Your Eyes
90% of all eye-related emergencies can be prevented by wearing appropriate eye protection. Make sure you have protective eyeglasses or goggles available when working on construction sites, factories, or laboratories.
Please refer to your workplace’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) guide for the best ways to protect yourself while at work.
Common Eye Emergencies
Chemical exposure can be extremely damaging and painful, including contact with:
- Battery acid
Chemical exposure can cause eye pain, burning, redness, swelling, and watery eyes. You may be able to manage your symptoms by flushing your eyes with cool, clean water for 15 minutes, and calling a medical professional.
Tears, Rips, & Punctures
Tears, rips, or punctures to the eye can be extremely painful, but please do not apply pressure to the injured area. Instead, cover the area to shield it and call emergency services.
Foreign Object in the Eye
Foreign objects like dust, metal debris, and wood shavings can cause discomfort or even eye pain, but you may be able to remove these particles by blinking or flushing your eyes with cool, clean water.
If you can’t remove these particles, they could cause severe eye damage. Please call a medical professional immediately.
Some eye diseases, like closed-angle glaucoma or wet AMD, can lead to sudden vision loss, flashers, floaters, redness, or eye pain.
