Many times eye injuries can occur during sports participation. Some high risk sports can include baseball, football, or tennis. It is helpful to wear protective sports gear when playing these sports, but of course accidents do occur and it is important to have immediate care whenever there is eye trauma. Sometimes burns to the eye can occur when a person is working around chemicals, hot air, or steam. Tanning lamps electric hair dryers, or welding equipment can all cause burns as well. Sometimes the extent of a burn injury does not show up until almost a day later. But whenever your eyes are exposed to any type of burn, it is important that you call our office immediately so that you can receive instructions about what you should immediately do at home, and then come in to see our eye doctor. If you have eye pain, worsening vision, or have any signs of an eye infection, it is important that you make in immediate appointment to come in and see our eye doctor. If you have pus or discharge coming from your eye, or your eye is red and swollen, or you have an unexplained fever, you may have an eye infection that needs immediate treatment.
