CONCLUSION

Eye Trauma (Work and Home)

People in this age group can be very active with various construction or repair tools, both at work and at home. A survey undertaken at the Royal Victorian Eye and Ear Hospital has revealed that 90% of eye injuries at the casualty department could have been prevented if normal precautionary measures were taken. Another survey in Tasmania has found that almost half of the eye injuries occur in a residential setting. Most injuries arise from failure to wear safety spectacles especially when grinding, drilling, welding and when handling lime, cement and acids. See recommendations below for first aid measures.
