Eye injuries and irritation can have a significant impact on your vision and overall eye health. It’s critical to seek proper care as soon as possible to prevent further complications and vision loss. At Eye See in Lincolnshire, IL, we provide comprehensive eye exams to detect any eye injuries or irritation early and provide treatment that will preserve your vision.
Causes of Eye Injuries and Irritation
Eye injuries and irritation can be caused by a variety of causes. Physical trauma, such as an accident where there is an impact on the eye, or sports can lead to an injury. Irritation is also caused by numerous factors like debris, dust, or chemicals in the eye. If you are exposed to hazardous chemicals and not wearing proper eye protection, your eye can be irritated. Along with that, irritation can occur if equipment is not handled properly or from environmental factors, such as pollen, pet dander, dust mites, or smoke.
Strategies for Prevention
You can take certain steps to protect your eyes from irritation or injury. Our optometrist recommends wearing safety glasses or goggles when working in hazardous areas or during sports activities. You should exercise caution while handling sharp objects, tools, or chemicals. Along with that, it’s important to keep harmful substances out of reach and wash your hands frequently to minimize the risk of eye infections. You should also avoid touching or rubbing your eyes frequently to prevent irritation from occurring.
Importance of Eye Care
At our practice, we offer regular eye exams to help identify eye injuries, infections, or diseases early. The results of the exam allow us to provide treatment on time and prevent complications.
