Weil Eye Care wants to encourage safety and accident prevention during October, Eye Injury Prevention Month.

Dr. Weil has seen many accidents involving eyes, including a bungee cord causing blindness, which snapped back and released the metal hook into someone’s eye. Dr. Weil has had to see the results and operate on patients that were injured due to air guns, BB guns, champagne corks, flying rocks, debris from motorized gardening equipment and more. Even chemical splashes from housecleaning supplies and tools have caused patients to come into the Weil Eye Care emergency care for help.

Being careful and using protective eyewear is the best advice Dr. Weil can give. Sports injuries are also common. Someone playing basketball gets an elbow or thumb in the eye or while playing baseball they get hit with a ball or bat.

Although the American Academy of Ophthalmology and the American Pediatric Association both recommend protective eye wear for all sports, generally it is not required by the teams and governing boards of the leagues. Given that a serious eye injury can impact future life choices for a child, Dr. Weil is not sure why that is.

If patients have further questions about prevention of eye injuries or would like to look at protective eyewear, please contact Weil Eye Care at 650-654-2133.
