Various injuries can result if the proper safety glasses are not worn, or if they are not worn at all. The most common eye injuries are:
· Cuts or abrasions to the cornea
· Particles embedded in the eye
· Chemical burns from splashes and spills
· Red eyes resulting from corneal inflammation
· Eye Contusions
It should be known this list represents only a small percentage of eye injuries, resulting from choosing not to wear safety glasses or wearing improper safety glasses.
