October is Home Eye Safety Awareness Month

October has been named Home Eye Safety Awareness Month by the group Prevent Blindness America. Most eye injuries occur at home. Here are some guidelines for at-home eye safety, provided by Optometry Times:

Chemical Burns

  • Immediately flush the eye with water. Hold the eye under a faucet or shower, or pour water into the eye using a clean container. Keep the eye open and as wide as possible while flushing. Continue flushing for at least 15 minutes.
  • DO NOT use an eyecup. DO NOT bandage the eye.
  • If a contact lens is in the eye, begin flushing over the lens immediately. This may wash away the lens.
  • Seek immediate medical treatment after flushing.

Specks in the Eye

  • DO NOT rub the eye.
  • Allow tears wash the speck out or use an eyewash.
  • Try lifting the upper eyelid outward and down over the lower lid.
  • If the speck does not wash out, keep the eye closed, bandage it lightly, and see a doctor.

Blows to the Eye

  • Apply a cold compress without putting pressure on the eye. Crushed ice in a plastic bag can be taped to the forehead to rest gently on the injured eye.
  • In cases of pain, reduced vision, or discoloration (black eye), seek emergency medical care. Any of these symptoms could mean internal eye damage.

Cuts and Punctures

  • DO NOT wash out the eye with water or any other liquid.
  • DO NOT try to remove an object that is stuck in the eye.
  • Cover the eye with a rigid shield without applying pressure. The bottom half of a paper cup can be used.
  • See a doctor at once.

These days, it seems there's truly an app for everything. Got a smartphone? There are apps out now for testing your visual acuity, astigmatism and more. While we at Newton Eye Care Center know there's no replacement for an optometrist's care, it might be fun to check these out. Learn more about the apps here. And if you find you don't do as well on the tests as you hoped, contact us at (989) 667-9393 for an appointment!
