EyeFoGraphic: Eye Injuries

While Workplace Wellness month is over, it is important not to let up on Eye Injury information and impart that info to your patients.

  • Each day about 2000 U.S. workers have a job-related eye injury that requires medical treatment.
  • About one third of the injuries are treated in hospital emergency departments and more than 100 of these injuries result in one or more days of lost work.
  • Health care workers, laboratory staff, janitorial workers, animal handlers, and other workers may be at risk of acquiring infectious diseases via ocular exposure.
