Prevention, Prevention, Prevention´┐Ż.. That is the best eye care you can give yourself. According to eye experts and doctors, 90% of workplace eye injuries could be avoided or lessened if safety eyewear was worn properly. Common eye injuries in the workplace are foreign bodies, chemicals in the eye, ultraviolet or infrared radiation exposure and cuts or scrapes on the cornea. The different types of eye protection gear are prescription or nonprescription safety glasses with side shields, goggles, face shields and helmets. It is required to use eye and face protection whenever there is a reasonable probability of injury that could be prevented. This can occur at work, home or in the office. Natural Vision can assist you in determining what type of eye protection may be needed as well as ensuring a proper fit. Annual eye exams are another key to prevention. Eye exams will help evaluate potential unseen injuries, as well as look for serious eye conditions like glaucoma, cataracts, diabetes and hypertension.
