It's Eye Safety Month and Lehmann Eye Center wants you to take care of one of your greatest assets — your vision.
More than one million people suffer eye injuries each year. Cuts to the eye, chemical burns and foreign bodies in the eye are among the most frequently seen cases in hospital emergency rooms. Many of these incidents can result in serious injuries or loss of vision. When proper safety measures are followed, most eye injuries can be prevented. The ability to give proper first aid for an eye injury can be an important step in saving sight.
First aid treatment is not a substitute for professional care. Proper treatment by an eye doctor or emergency medical professional after an eye injury is most important to prevent permanent damage and loss of sight.
If you experience an eye injury or other vision problem, call us for a complete eye examination.
