Love Your Eyes, Protect Your Eyes!

More than 2,000 people injure their eyes at work every day but with the right eye protection, most of these injuries could have been prevented or the severity lessened. Whether you work in a manufacturing plant, an office or as a mom taking care of little ones, it’s important to protect your eyes.

Are you in a position that requires manual labor? When working around equipment or exposure to chemicals and other materials, it’s imperative to wear eye protection. A pair of safety glasses, ideally made with impact-resistant lenses, are necessary for jobs that present an eye safety risk. If there are chemicals present, safety goggles should be worn. Talk with your employer to see if safety glasses are covered in your vision plan.

Do you work a desk job? You’re likely sitting in front of a computer most days and have begun to realize that blue light is a real thing. Digital eye strain may be the culprit. Thankfully, there are several potential solutions. Talk to your eye doctor about computer glasses with special lenses or lens coatings can help filter blue light emitted from screens.

Are you a full-time wrangler of kids? When the endless bound of energy strikes, the park and pool are surefire ways to tire the kids out. However, that could also mean UV light exposure, which can cause damage to the eyes and the delicate skin around the eyes. Throw on a pair of sunglasses for you and the kids or grab a wide-brimmed hat for some protection.
