Motor vehicle crashes, bicycle collisions, fall down accidents, construction or workplace accidents, chemical exposure and defective products are among the many causes/scenarios that can result in eye conditions or vision loss.
Common Eye Conditions:
- Corneal Abrasion: a corneal abrasion is essentially a scratch on your eye. Corneal abrasions are generally the result of a foreign object coming into contact and damaging the cornea. Foreign objects could include glass, dirt, sawdust, sand, or ash. Minor scratches generally heal in time, but deep scratches can result in long-term vision problems.
- Traumatic Iritis: this type of injury is caused by a blunt blow to the eye, like an airbag or falling item. This condition can cause blurred vision and headaches. Treatment and recovery vary based on the severity of the injury.
- Orbital Blowout Fractures and Hyphemas: caused by blunt forces, like the impact of a car crash or a serious fall. This type of injury is often associated with a traumatic brain injury, as the entire head is generally affected. Surgery is generally required to repair the fractured orbital floor.
- Retinal Detachment, Tears, and Breaks: issues with the retina should be treated immediately to avoid potential issues, like permanent vision loss. Traumatic brain injury victims are among those who are commonly diagnosed with retinal detachment.
