Preventing Eye Injuries at Home

Father-son-tools_180pxWe want all Americans to be aware of the dangers to their eyes at home, in the workplace and while playing sports.

Thousands of eye accidents happen each day; 90 percent of these are preventable with the use of appropriate safety eyewear.

Because there are good eye safety regulations in the workplace, the home is the source of the fastest-growing number of eye injuries. Eye injuries are almost as great a danger to bystanders as the people using dangerous tools or chemicals in the home. Good eye protection is just as important for those watching you work as for the workers themselves.
