According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, about 20,000 eye injuries occur in the workplace each year. Injuries on the job often require one or more missed workdays for recovery. Of the total amount of work-related injuries, 10-20% will cause temporary or permanent vision loss. In fact, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) reports that workplace eye injuries cost an estimated $300 million a year in lost productivity, medical treatment and worker compensation.
“As Ben Franklin once said, ‘an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure,'” said ophthalmologist Anne Sumers, MD, clinical spokesperson for the American Academy of Ophthalmology. “It takes very little effort to protect yourself from on-the-job hazards that can cause blinding eye injuries.”
