Eye Injury Prevention Month at Eyecare Medical Group in Portland, Maine
Many household chemicals, such as cleaning fluids, detergents and ammonia, are extremely hazardous and can burn the eye's delicate tissues. When using chemicals, always read instructions and labels carefully, work in a well-ventilated area and make sure spray nozzles point away from you and others before spraying. Be sure to wash your hands thoroughly after use.
“We are fortunate to have Ravi Shah, M.D. at Eyecare Medical Group, who is a fellowship trained corneal specialist and experienced in the most advanced techniques and treatment options for these types of injuries,” said Clement Berry, Chief Executive Officer of Eyecare Medical Group.
"I like to remind people to keep a pair of goggles in the trunk for when they need to jump-start their car," said Dr. Shah. "Battery acid sparks and debris flying from car batteries can severely damage the eyes." Before using a lawnmower, power trimmer or edger, check for debris. Stones, twigs and other items can become dangerous projectiles shooting from the blades of a lawnmower, potentially injuring your eyes or those of innocent bystanders.
“Prevention is the first and most important step in avoiding serious eye injuries, so be sure to protect your eyes with appropriate protective eyewear,” reiterated Dr. Sterrer.
