Burn to Eye Guide

The most common causes of burn to eye injuries are the chemicals that we use. Here, we tend to damage our eyes when a harmful chemical splashes on our face or by rubbing our eyes after handling such products. So, depending on the type of chemical and exposure, the effects of the injury may be irritation, temporary redness and even blindness in severe cases. Shockingly, a chemical splashed on your eye causes poisoning much faster than that which is absorbed through the skin. Therefore, it’s essential to get immediate medical attention before the condition worsens!

Some First Aid Suggestions for Burn Eye Injuries

As we’ve mentioned, splashes or liquid chemicals may severely damage your eye. In most cases, quick and careful rinsing of the eye reduces the risk of injuries and prevents long-term complications. Here, you should always remember that it’s better to go to the nearest tap instead of using saline from your first aid kit. With that said, some essential tips include:

  • Holding your face under some running water for around 20 minutes and allowing the water to ‘flood’ into your eyes. Use your clean fingers to hold your eyelids up.
  • Get rid of your contact lenses as soon as possible!
  • Look for immediate medical advice and provide the health experts with all the information regarding the chemical involved. They’ll want to know whether it’s liquid, powder, acid or alkaline!

Treatment Process for Burn Eye Chemical Injuries

It’s worth mentioning that the type of treatment prescribed by the doctor depends on the severity of the injury. For instance, to reduce chances of infection, you’ll need to use some topical antibiotics or proven eye drops. Other essential treatment tips include:

  • Anti-inflammatory drugs
  • An eye patch to help you recover faster in severe cases
  • Hospital admission is also necessary for severe cases.

Importance of Using Eye-Protection!

Medical research suggests that close to 90 percent of all chemical burns on your eyes are avoidable. You only need to put on some eye protection when handling harmful powder or liquid chemicals. Sunglasses or prescription glasses do not offer reliable protection because they are loosely fit, allowing dust or liquids to enter behind their frames. Therefore, when it comes to safety glasses, we recommend stronger frames, shatter-resistant lenses and side shields. You may even wear safety goggles over your prescription glasses!

How Can You Recover Safely and Quickly?

The eye recovery process differs depending on the severity of the injury. For minor injuries, you’ll need close to 6 weeks if necessary and an extensive rehabilitation process.
