Common Causes of Eye Injuries

  • Car accidents: head trauma, facial injuries, or direct eye damage in a car accident that could result in permanent vision loss.
  • Defective airbags: many cases in which airbags deploy can cause facial injuries. In other cases, defective airbags have actually sent metal shrapnel into the eyes of drivers.
  • LASIK surgery: mistakes are made during laser eye surgery can lead to vision loss.
  • Work-related accidents: many types of chemicals can cause permanent eye damage. When workers such as janitors, maintenance workers, or laboratory employees are asked to handle dangerous chemicals, they may be at risk of suffering an eye injury. Mechanics, factory workers and construction workers are at risk of injury as well because of flying shrapnel and pieces of metal in the air.
  • Contact lens solution: cases of defective lens solutions that can cause damage to the eyes have been reported.
  • Slip and fall accidents: these situations can lead to an injury that causes damage to the occipital lobe of the brain, affecting vision.
